how to get unique values from a list of objects?

Data:

[
  {
    "name": "Ankh of Anubis",
    "rank": {
      "_type": "medal",
      "current": "ankh-of-anubis"
    }
  },
  {
    "name": "Bonus Roulette",
    "rank": {
      "_type": "medal",
      "current": "bonus-roulette"
    }
  },
  {
    "name": "jetx",
    "rank": {
      "_type": "medal",
      "current": "jetx"
    }
  },
  {
    "name": "Gates of Olympus",
    "rank": {
      "_type": "trophy",
      "current": "gates-of-olympus"
    }
  },
]

How to filter only unique values,

uniqueValues = ["medal","trophy"]

I tried,

  1. const uniqueTitles = new Set(games.category.title);
  2. const uniqueTitles = [...new Set(games.category.title)] //typescript error.
 useEffect(() => {
    const uniqueTitles = games.filter((game:any) => {
      return new Set(game.category.title);
    })
    setTitles(uniqueTitles);
  },[])

>Solution :

You are using Set as the return value for a filter function. Is it really intended that way?
Given the data:

const data = [
  {
    "name": "Ankh of Anubis",
    "rank": {
      "_type": "medal",
      "current": "ankh-of-anubis"
    }
  },
  {
    "name": "Bonus Roulette",
    "rank": {
      "_type": "medal",
      "current": "bonus-roulette"
    }
  },
  {
    "name": "jetx",
    "rank": {
      "_type": "medal",
      "current": "jetx"
    }
  },
  {
    "name": "Gates of Olympus",
    "rank": {
      "_type": "trophy",
      "current": "gates-of-olympus"
    }
  },
]

You can do this:

const uniqueValues = new Set();
data.forEach(record => uniqueValues.add(record.rank._type));
console.log(uniqueValues);
