Javascript Destructuring an array

An array can be destructured when being assigned to a new variable.

const triangle = [3, 4, 5];
const [length, height, hypotenuse] = triangle;
length === 3;
height === 4; 
hypotneuse === 5;



Elements can be skipped

const [,b,,c] = [1, 2, 3, 4];
console.log(b, c);


2, 4

Rest operator can be used too

const [b,c, ...xs] = [2, 3, 4, 5];
console.log(b, c, xs); 


2, 3, [4, 5]

An array can also be destructured if it's an argument to a function.

function area([length, height]) {
 return (length * height) / 2;
const triangle = [3, 4, 5];
