Legacy API The following methods were available in v2, and still available in v3, but should be avoided in favor of native browser API

utils.extend( a, b )
// extend object
// use Object.assign() or { ...obj } instead

utils.getParent( elem, selector )
// get parent element of an element, given a selector string
// use elem.closest( selector ) instead

Browser support

Fizzy UI utils uses ES2018 features like spread operators and arrow functions. As such its browser support is: Chrome 46+, Firefox 34+, Safari 10+, and Edge 12+.

For older browser support, including IE10 and Android 4, try v2.
