Hey guys I am back with another blog post. In this post we will be discussing How to check if an array includes an object in Javascript?Anyone wanted to implement this functionality should pay attention to the whole post. Let’s get started.


Current browsers have Array#includes, which does exactly that, is widely supported, and has a polyfill for older browsers.


You can also use Array#indexOf, which is less direct, but doesn’t require Polyfills for out of date browsers.


jQuery offers $.inArray, which is functionally equivalent to Array#indexOf


You can use a specific Javascript library called as underscore.js which is a utility for making this operation possible. Download the library from here.

This is the end of the post and you have successfully understood how to check if an array includes an object in Javascript. Thank you very much for reading this post and also please subscribe to our newsletter for receiving more posts like this.
