re: Rethinking JavaScript: The if statement VIEW POST

FULL DISCUSSION
 

if you do return early in function, you don’t need else. Using if is ok imo, with reduce else with return early when possible.

 

I love early returns and I use them in codebases that are imperative and OOP.

But when creating a functional codebase, 98% of my functions have a single statement, and that statement is a return.

When you eliminate statements and blocks, you will find that your codebase naturally becomes more functional.
