                    }
            });
        }
    }

And of course,in production, it always reported success and never changed the password, because of equally bad server code.

// Is this valid?
function validateStockInItems() {
    if (stockInItemsToUpdate.length === 0)
        return true;
    return true;
}

Found in a legacy code base for a stock management system. I will be rewriting said system soon.

for(var j=0;j<10;j++){
    cell=document.createElement('td');
    switch(j)
    {
        case 0: 
            var date1 = events[i]['start'];
            var date2 = events[i]['end'];
            cell.appendChild(document.createTextNode(date1.getFullYear()+'/'+date1.getMonth()+'/'+date1.getDate()+' '+date1.getHours()+':'+date1.getMinutes()+' To '+date2.getFullYear()+'/'+date2.getMonth()+'/'+date2.getDate()+' '+date2.getHours()+':'+date2.getMinutes())); 
            break;

        case 2: cell.appendChild(document.createTextNode(events[i]['description'])); break;
    }
    row.appendChild(cell);
}

The for loop that counts to 10, but the last seven elements are completely useless.

socket.on('newMessage', (messageObj) => {
	if (roomNumber === messageObj.roomNumber) {

		console.log("message received:" + messageObj.message);
		$('#messages').append($('<li>').text(messageObj.userName + ' : ' + messageObj.message));

	}
});

socket.in wasn't behaving as advertised (broadcasting to all rooms). I decided to take matters into my own hands.

if(typeof(sortOrder) != "boolean"){        
    return items;
}
filtered.sort(function (a, b) {
    if(sortOrder == true){
        return (CustomOrder(a.status) > CustomOrder(b.status) ? 1 : -1);
    }
    else if(sortOrder == false){
        return (CustomOrder(a.status) < CustomOrder(b.status) ? 1 : -1);
    }
});

The status property is a string ("Started", "Running", "Failed", "Finished", etc.), and CustomOrder is a function with a switch that just returns a predefined integer for each string. I switched CustomOrder to just be a simple lookup table object, and the sort call was changed to filtered.sort((a, b) => CustomOrder[a.status] - CustomOrder[b.status]);

if (!String.prototype.replaceLast) {
        String.prototype.replaceLast = function(find, replace) {
            String.prototype.replaceLast = function (what, replacement) {
                var pcs = this.split(what);
                var lastPc = pcs.pop();
                return pcs.join(what) + replacement + lastPc;
            };
        };
    }

Prototypes are super buggy anyway, I should rewrite that as a pure function.

Was trying to find a very specific text box and as an AngularJS noob, this was the only way I could find it at first. I eventually figured out how to not do this before it ever got committed to production though. :)
