Array.forEach() & NodeList.forEach()

The Array.forEach() and NodeList.forEach() methods provide a simpler way to iterate over arrays and NodeLists while still having access to the index.

You pass a callback function into the forEach() method. The callback itself accepts three arguments: the current item in the loop, the index of the current item in the loop, and the array itself. All three are optional, and you can name them anything you want.

let sandwiches = ['turkey', 'tuna', 'ham', 'pb&j'];

// logs 0, "tuna", 1, "ham", 2, "turkey", 3, "pb&j"
sandwiches.forEach(function (sandwich, index) {
	console.log(index); // index
	console.log(sandwich); // value
