Great blog on Functional programming. For me does an excellent job of highlighting the difference between pure functions and bonified functional programming. lodash fp is a wrapper around lodash to provide immutable, auto curried, iteratee first data last functions.

Currying seems to make sense here, just functions that return a function. The data param is often omitted at the end to make the function more re-usable.

Currying, just keeps returning a function until it has all the arguments. This is why it makes sense to have the data arg last so it can be provided last.

I still can't see the functional programming being realistically easier to use but pure functions definitely make a lot of sense.
