[javascript] How to add items to array in nodejs

How do I iterate through an existing array and add the items to a new array.

var array = [];
forEach( calendars, function (item, index) {
    array[] = item.id
}, done );

function done(){

The above code would normally work in JS, not sure about the alternative in node js. I tried .push and .splice but neither worked.

The answer is

Check out Javascript's Array API for details on the exact syntax for Array methods. Modifying your code to use the correct syntax would be:

var array = [];
calendars.forEach(function(item) {


You can also use the map() method to generate an Array filled with the results of calling the specified function on each element. Something like:

var array = calendars.map(function(item) {
    return item.id;


And, since ECMAScript 2015 has been released, you may start seeing examples using let or const instead of var and the => syntax for creating functions. The following is equivalent to the previous example (except it may not be supported in older node versions):

let array = calendars.map(item => item.id);
