The ternary operator can be used at many levels. The further we move it into a statement, the more duplication it can save us.
Finding values that exist in only one of two arrays is called “XOR”, or “exclusive OR”. It gets us all values that appear in either the first OR the second array, but not both.
// takes two arrays and returns all elements that appear in only one of them const xor = (first, second) => [ ...first.filter(element => !second.includes(element)), ...second.filter(element => !first.includes(element)) ] // `xor` returns all elements that appear in only one of the two arrays xor([1, 2, 3, 4, 5], [2, 3, 4, 5, 6]) // ⇒ [1, 6] // an element can appear multiple times, but only in one array xor(['beep', 'beep', 'boo', 'boo'], ['beep']) // ⇒ ['boo', 'boo']
