Bonfire 35: Steamroller

TASK: Flatten a nested array. You must account for varying levels of nesting.

I must admit I am still struggling with this stuff, but hey, it’s recursive and it works!
I’m much, much in debt to Jai’s solution on this thread.

function steamroller(arr) {

if (Array.isArray(arr) && arr.length > 0) {
var head = arr[0];
var tail = arr.slice(1);

return steamroller(head).concat(steamroller(tail));
} else {
return [].concat(arr);

steamroller([1, [2], [3, [[4]]]]);
