    Double Linked List

    A JavaScript implementation of a doubly-linked list. Much faster than the native JS array if your focus is adding and removing from large data sets.

    Slow if you need to randomly access elements from within the data set.

    Installation

    $ npm install double-linked-list
    

    Use

    var LinkedList = require('double-linked-list');
    
    var list = new LinkedList();

    #toString

    var listString = list.toString();
    

    Returns the contents of the list as a readable string.

    list.push('one');
    list.push('two');
    list.push('three');
    
    console.log(list.toString()); // 'one, two, three'
    
    list.push({hello: "this"});
    list.push({goodbye: "that"});
    console.log(list.toString()); // '{"hello":"this"}, {"goodbye":"that"}'
    

    .length

    list.length;
