Binary Search Tree (in Javascript)

Build Status Coverage Status NPM

Usage

Install from NPM:

npm i bst-js
const Node = require("bst-js");
// create a tree with the root node value of 5
const tree = new Node(5);

The above will assume that the value of each node is a number. If you would like to store other forms of data, you will need to use your own comparator so that the tree can properly be sorted:

const tree = new Node("f", (x, y) => {
  if (< y) return -1;
  if (> y) return 1;
  return 0;
});
 
tree.insert("b").insert("p").insert("l").insert("z");
//      f
//    /  \
//  b     p
//      /  \
//    l     z

Methods

insert

Inserts a node with the given value.

const tree = new Node(9).insert(4);
//      9
//     /
//    4

or insert many values at once.

const tree = new Node(5);
const newValues = [10, 1, 8, 7];
tree.insert(...newValues); // or tree.insert(10, 1, 8, 7)
//        5
//      /   \
//    1      10
//          /
//         8
//        /
//       7

delete

Deletes a node with the given value.

const tree = new Node(5).insert(10).insert(1).insert(8).insert(7);
//        5
//      /   \
//    1      10
//          /
//         8
//        /
//       7
tree.delete(10);
//        5
//      /   \
//    1      8
//          /
//         7

or insert many values at once.

const tree = new Node(5).insert(10, 1, 8, 7);
const oldValues = [10, 1];
tree.delete(...oldValues); // or tree.delete(10, 1)
//        5
//      /   \
//    1      8
//          /
//         7

isBalanced

Returns true if the height of the left and right subtrees have a difference of 1 or less.

const tree = new Node(5);
tree.insert(10).insert(1).insert(0).insert(9).insert(53).insert(12);
 
tree.isBalanced();
// true

height

Returns the height of a given tree or subtree.

const tree = new Node(5).insert(10).insert(1).insert(8).insert(7);
 
tree.height();
// 3

depth

const tree = new Node(5).insert(10, 1, 8, 7);
 
tree.depth(8);
// 2

size

Returns the total number of nodes in a tree or subtree.

const tree = new Node(5).insert(10).insert(1).insert(8).insert(7);
 
tree.size();
// 5

contains

Returns true if a tree/subtree contains the passed value.

const tree = new Node(5).insert(10).insert(1).insert(8).insert(7);
 
tree.contains(10);
// true

depthFirst

Will execute a callback with each node's context bound to this over a depthFirst PREORDER traversal (by default). It also supports INORDER and POSTORDER traversals.

const tree = new Node(5).insert(10).insert(1).insert(8).insert(7);
 
tree.depthFirst(function() {
  console.log(this.value);
});
// 5, 10, 1, 8, 7
 
tree.depthFirst(function() {
  console.log(this.value);
}, "inorder");
// 1, 5, 7, 8, 10

breadthFirst

Will execute a callback with each node's context bound to this over a breadthFirst traversal.

const tree = new Node(5).insert(10).insert(1).insert(0).insert(8).insert(7);
//        5
//      /   \
//    1      10
//   /      /
//  0      8
//        /
//       7
 
tree.breadthFirst(function() {
  console.log(this.value);
});
// 5, 1, 10, 0, 8, 7
