We can find the PHP array_filter in JavaScript in http://jsphp.co/jsphp/fn/view/array_filter

    // *     returns 2: {0: 6, 2: 8, 4: 10, 6: 12} 
    // *     example 3: var arr = array_filter({"a": 1, "b": false, "c": -1, "d": 0, "e": null, "f":'', "g":undefined});
    // *     returns 3: {"a":1, "c":-1};
    
    var retObj = {},
        k;
        
    func = func || function (v) {return v;};

    for (k in arr) {
        if (func(arr[k])) {
            retObj[k] = arr[k];
        }
    }

    return retObj;
}

But you can’t use it for find by values.

array_filter

array array_filter ( array $array [, callable $callback [, int $flag = 0 ]] )

flag: Flag determining what arguments are sent to callback:

  • ARRAY_FILTER_USE_KEY – pass key as the only argument to callback instead of the value
  • ARRAY_FILTER_USE_BOTH – pass both value and key as arguments to callback instead of the value

The flag parameter was added from PHP 5.6.0

We add the flag parameter for the javascript function below:

js array_filter

ARRAY_FILTER_USE_KEY = 1;
ARRAY_FILTER_USE_BOTH = 2;

    var retObj = {},
        k;
        
    func = func || function (v) {return v;};
     
    for (k in arr) {
         
        if ((flag==undefined && func(arr[k]))||
            (flag==ARRAY_FILTER_USE_KEY && func(k))||

            retObj[k] = arr[k];
        }    
    }

    return retObj;
}

Example 1:

var arr = array_filter({"a": 1, "b": 2, "c": 3, "d": 4, "e": 5}, function(x){return x!='b'}, ARRAY_FILTER_USE_KEY);
    // *     returns: {a: 1, c: 3, d: 4, e: 5}

Example 2:

var arr = array_filter({"a": 1, "b": 2, "c": 3, "d": 4, "e": 5}, function(x,k){return x==3||k=='a'}, ARRAY_FILTER_USE_BOTH);
    // *     returns: {a: 1, c: 3}
