JS: Get Max/Min Value of Array

By Xah Lee. Date: . Last updated: .

Here's a function that returns the max value of a array.

const xah_get_max_of_array = ((array) => (Reflect.apply ( Math.max , undefined, array )));

// test
console.log ( xah_get_max_of_array ([3, 9, 2]) ); // 9

// pre ES2015 version
// function xah_get_max_of_array (array) { return Math.max.apply(null, array); }

To get the the minimum value of a array, just replace the Math.max by Math.min.
