# Lo-Dash v2.4.2 A utility library delivering consistency, [customization](https://lodash.com/custom-builds), [performance](https://lodash.com/benchmarks), & [extras](https://lodash.com/#features). ## Download Check out our [wiki]([https://github.com/lodash/lodash/wiki/build-differences]) for details over the differences between builds. * Modern builds perfect for newer browsers/environments:
[Development](https://raw.github.com/lodash/lodash/2.4.2/dist/lodash.js) & [Production](https://raw.github.com/lodash/lodash/2.4.2/dist/lodash.min.js) * Compatibility builds for older environment support too:
[Development](https://raw.github.com/lodash/lodash/2.4.2/dist/lodash.compat.js) & [Production](https://raw.github.com/lodash/lodash/2.4.2/dist/lodash.compat.min.js) * Underscore builds to use as a drop-in replacement:
[Development](https://raw.github.com/lodash/lodash/2.4.2/dist/lodash.underscore.js) & [Production](https://raw.github.com/lodash/lodash/2.4.2/dist/lodash.underscore.min.js) CDN copies are available on [cdnjs](http://cdnjs.com/libraries/lodash.js/) & [jsDelivr](http://www.jsdelivr.com/#!lodash). For smaller file sizes, create [custom builds](https://lodash.com/custom-builds) with only the features needed. Love modules? We’ve got you covered with [lodash-amd](https://npmjs.org/package/lodash-amd), [lodash-es6](https://github.com/lodash/lodash-es6), [lodash-node](https://npmjs.org/package/lodash-node), & [npm packages](https://npmjs.org/browse/keyword/lodash-modularized) per method. ## Dive in There’s plenty of **[documentation](https://lodash.com/docs)**, [unit tests](https://lodash.com/tests), & [benchmarks](https://lodash.com/benchmarks).
Check out DevDocs as a fast, organized, & searchable interface for our documentation. The full changelog for this release is available on our [wiki](https://github.com/lodash/lodash/wiki/Changelog).
A list of upcoming features is available on our [roadmap](https://github.com/lodash/lodash/wiki/Roadmap). ## Installation & usage In browsers: ```html ``` Using [`npm`](http://npmjs.org/): ```bash npm i --save lodash {sudo} npm i -g lodash npm ln lodash ``` In [Node.js](http://nodejs.org/) & [Ringo](http://ringojs.org/): ```js var _ = require('lodash'); // or as Underscore var _ = require('lodash/dist/lodash.underscore'); ``` **Notes:** * Don’t assign values to [special variable](http://nodejs.org/api/repl.html#repl_repl_features) `_` when in the REPL * If Lo-Dash is installed globally, run [`npm ln lodash`](http://blog.nodejs.org/2011/03/23/npm-1-0-global-vs-local-installation/) in your project’s root directory *before* requiring it In [Rhino](http://www.mozilla.org/rhino/): ```js load('lodash.js'); ``` In an AMD loader: ```js require({ 'packages': [ { 'name': 'lodash', 'location': 'path/to/lodash', 'main': 'lodash' } ] }, ['lodash'], function(_) { console.log(_.VERSION); }); ``` ##
