symbol-tree

Travis CI Build Status Coverage Status

Turn any collection of objects into its own efficient tree or linked list using Symbol.

This library has been designed to provide an efficient backing data structure for DOM trees. You can also use this library as an efficient linked list. Any meta data is stored on your objects directly, which ensures any kind of insertion or deletion is performed in constant time. Because an ES6 Symbol is used, the meta data does not interfere with your object in any way.

Node.js 4+, io.js and modern browsers are supported.

Example

A linked list:

const SymbolTree = require('symbol-tree');
const tree = new SymbolTree();
 
let a = {foo: 'bar'}; // or `new Whatever()`
let b = {foo: 'baz'};
let c = {foo: 'qux'};
 
tree.insertBefore(b, a); // insert a before b
tree.insertAfter(b, c); // insert c after b
 
console.log(tree.nextSibling(a) === b);
console.log(tree.nextSibling(b) === c);
console.log(tree.previousSibling(c) === b);
 
tree.remove(b);
console.log(tree.nextSibling(a) === c);

A tree:

const SymbolTree = require('symbol-tree');
const tree = new SymbolTree();
 
let parent = {};
let a = {};
let b = {};
let c = {};
 
tree.prependChild(parent, a); // insert a as the first child
tree.appendChild(parent,); // insert c as the last child
tree.insertAfter(a, b); // insert b after a, it now has the same parent as a
 
console.log(tree.firstChild(parent) === a);
console.log(tree.nextSibling(tree.firstChild(parent)) === b);
console.log(tree.lastChild(parent) === c);
 
let grandparent = {};
tree.prependChild(grandparent, parent);
console.log(tree.firstChild(tree.firstChild(grandparent)) === a);

See api.md for more documentation.

Testing

Make sure you install the dependencies first:

npm install

You can now run the unit tests by executing:

npm test

The line and branch coverage should be 100%.

Param Type Default Description
[description] string "'SymbolTree data'" Description used for the Symbol

symbolTree.initialize(object) ⇒ Object

You can use this function to (optionally) initialize an object right after its creation, to take advantage of V8's fast properties. Also useful if you would like to freeze your object.
