Join Eve Porcello for an in-depth discussion in this video Sets, part of Learning ECMAScript 6.
- [Instructor] Another new type included…in the ES6 spec is sets.…Set objects are collections of values.…They can be of any type, but each value must be unique.…The API is somewhat similar to that of maps,…but is a little bit different.…Let's take a look.…So, here on line 7, I'm going to create my first set.…So, I'm going to create a variable called books…and I will set it equal to a new set,…using this constructor function.…Next up, we're going to use a method…that is part of the set's object called add.…
And add is going to take in a string.…So, we'll say add Pride and Prejudice.…Let's add another book here.…War and Peace.…And I also want to point out that,…if we wanted to add multiple,…we could chain on different add functions,…so we'll say Oliver Twist.…Perfect.…So, let's log our books set to the console.…And when we take a look at this in the browser,…we should see our set that contains Pride and Prejudice,…War and Peace, and Oliver Twist.…
Another little property that we can use here…is we can say console.log, books.size…
