Curry function in JavaScript

Currying is an advanced technique of working with functions. It’s used not only in JavaScript but in other languages as well.

Currying is a transformation of functions that translates a function from callable as f(a, b, c) into callable as f(a)(b)(c).

Currying doesn’t call a function. It just transforms it.

Curried functions are higher-order functions that allow us to create specialized versions of original functions. Currying works thanks to closures, which retain the enclosing function scopes after they have returned.


Currying is a transform that makes f(a,b,c) callable as f(a)(b)(c). JavaScript implementations usually both keep the function callable normally and return the partial if the arguments count is not enough. Currying allows us to easily get partials.
