Let's Understand For In vs For Of Loop in JavaScript


for-of and for-in are two different looping constructs in JavaScript.


for-of is used to iterate over the values in an iterable object, such as an array or a string. It allows you to access the values of the object directly, without having to use an index.


Here is an example of using for-of to loop over the characters in a string:

const string = 'hello'; for (const char of string) { console.log(char); } // Output: h, e, l, l, o


On the other hand, for-in is used to iterate over the enumerable properties of an object. It allows you to access the keys of the object, rather than the values.


Here is an example of using for-in to loop over the properties of an object:

const object = {a: 1, b: 2, c: 3}; for (const key in object) { console.log(key); } // Output: a, b, c


It's important to note that for-in will also iterate over any inherited properties of an object. If you only want to iterate over the object's own properties, you can use Object.keys() or Object.entries() in combination with a for-of loop.

const object = {a: 1, b: 2, c: 3}; for (const key of Object.keys(object)) { console.log(key); } // Output: a, b, c
