In javascript what does this mean => when using in context.

For example

 const run = {
    "←": ([x, y]) => [x - 1, y],
    "→": ([x, y]) => [x + 1, y],
    "↓": ([x, y]) => [x, y - 1],
    "↑": ([x, y]) => [x, y + 1] 
  };

Hi,
as far as I know this is not "pure" Javascript as this operator "=>" is not specified.

But Typescript has such constructs to manage expectations and to provide some kind of type safe programming functionality.
Please have a look here in the specs:
