`ele.component()` #1878

eles.components() gives all components of the elements in the calling collection. It would be nice to have ele.component() that gives the component of a node or an edge.

ele.component() would have to take into account all the elements in the graph --- i.e. you can't specify a subset of elements to consider. For those cases, it's better to use eles.components().

is this as simple as something like:

function (ele) {
    let compEles = new Set(); 
    cy.elements().breadthFirstSearch({ root: ele, visit: (v) => { compEles.add(v) }} );
   return compEles;

or is there some better algorithm to use?

If it's as simple as above I can try to look at making a PR for it.

More or less. You'd use a new cy.collection() and merge() for internal functions for performance. It's basically the existing ele.components() function implementation but only using one node as input rather than all nodes.

Add `ele.component()`
- Repurpose `eles.components()` to be more general by allowing setting of the `root` collection -- components that `root` nodes belong to will be returned.  The signature is now `eles.components(root)`, where `root` is `eles.nodes()` by default.
- The repurposing of `eles.components()` makes it so `ele.component()` is basically a one-liner.
- Improve performance a bit by avoiding intermediary collections.
- Add `eles.componentsOf()` alias.
