    HashMap & LinkedHashMap

    Description

    This project provides HashMap and LinkedHashMap classes that works both on Node.js and the browser.

    • They are both implementations of a simplified HAMT like hash trie
    • It uses a modified Murmer 3 algorithm for generating hashes. This ensures the widest possible spread across all buckets.
    • As per spec, the basic Hashmap is not guaranteed to meet order of insertion when iterating over it. If you want guaranteed insertion order when iterating, use LinkedHashMap.
    • The keys are truly typed and unique, this means 1 !== "1".

    Choose your map wisely.

    • When choosing a collection it is worth understanding the problem you are trying to solve.
    • Native JS Map for small numbers of entries, will be significantly faster.
    • However once the map reaches 1'000 or more the Mootable Hashmap really shows its strengths. It utilizes more memory, to do this.
    • The Native JS Map is likely to have improved speed characteristics if repeating operations in a loop, via things such as JIT compilation. It is worth benchmarking to see if Map works better for you in those situations.

    Installation

    NPM

    Using npm:

    $ npm install @mootable/hashmap
    

    You can download the last stable version from the releases page.

    If you like risk, you can download the latest master version, it's usually stable.

    To run the tests:

    $ npm test
    

    To run the benchmarks: (Ensure you have the memory to run them)

    • If you don't you can reduce the memory size (in MB) accordingly --max_old_space_size and remove the last items in MAP_SIZES

      $ node --max_old_space_size=24576 --expose-gc test\benchmark.js

    Importing

    Node ESModules

     import {HashMap, LinkedHashMap} from '@mootable/hashmap';

    Node CommonJS

     const {HashMap, LinkedHashMap} = require('@mootable/hashmap');

    Browser

    <!-- Or one of the other provided alternates (see dist folder) -->
    <script src="pathToFile/hashmap.umd.min.js"></script>
    <script type="text/javascript">
        // By Default Mootable is on the global scope.
        const HashMap = Mootable.HashMap;
        const LinkedHashMap = Mootable.LinkedHashMap;
    </script>

    HashMap constructor

    This HashMap is backed by a hashtrie.

    • new HashMap() creates an empty hashmap
    • new HashMap(copy:Iterable) creates a hashmap which is a copy of the provided iterable.
      1. copy either
      • an object that provides a forEach function with the same signature as Map.forEach, such as Map or this HashMap and LinkedHashMap
      • or a 2 dimensional key-value array, e.g. [['key1','val1'], ['key2','val2']].

    LinkedHashMap constructor

    LinkedHashMap maintains insertion order of keys, it has a slightly larger memory footprint and is a little slower.

    • new LinkedHashMap() creates an empty linked hashmap
    • new LinkedHashMap(copy:Iterable) creates a linked hashmap which is a copy of the provided iterable.
      1. copy either
      • an object that provides a forEach function with the same signature as Map.forEach, such as Map or this HashMap and LinkedHashMap
      • or a 2 dimensional key-value array, e.g. [['key1','val1'], ['key2','val2']].

    Examples

    HashMap and LinkedHashMaps, have the same constructor options, and are created in the same way..

    Create an empty HashMap

     const hashmap = new HashMap();
     // hashmap.size === 0;

    Create a LinkedHashMap from an array of key value pairs

    const arr = [[1,'value1'],[2,'value2'],[3,'value3']];
    const hashmap = new LinkedHashMap(arr);
    // hashmap.size === 3;

    Create HashMap from another map

    const map = new Map([[1,'value1'],[2,'value2'],[3,'value3']])
    const hashmap = new HashMap(map);
    // hashmap.size === 3;

    Create LinkedHashMap from another HashMap

    const first = new HashMap([[1,'value1'],[2,'value2'],[3,'value3']])
    const hashmap = new LinkedHashMap(first);
    // hashmap.size === 3;

    Create a HashMap from a class with symbol

    class MyIterable {
        *[Symbol.iterator] () {
            yield ["key1", "value1"];
            yield ["key2", "value2"];
            yield ["key3", "value3"];
            yield ["key4", "value4"];
        }
    }
    const iterable = new MyIterable();
    const hashmap = new HashMap(iterable);
    // hashmap.size === 4;
    // it doesn't have to be a generator, an iterator works too.

    Create a LinkedHashMap from an object with an entries' generator function

    const entriesObj = {
        entries: function* () {
            yield ["key1", "value1"];
            yield ["key2", "value2"];
            yield ["key3", "value3"];
            yield ["key4", "value4"];
        }
    }
    const hashmap = new LinkedHashMap(entriesObj);
    // hashmap.size === 4;
    // it doesn't have to be a generator, an iterator works too.

    Create HashMap from an object with a forEach function

    const forEachObj = {
        forEach: (callback, ctx) => {
            for (let i = 1; i <= 4; i++) {
                callback.call(ctx, 'value' + i, 'key' + i);
            }
        }
    };
    const hashmap = new HashMap(forEachObj);
    // hashmap.size === 4;

    Benchmarks

    • Current Benchmarks can be found under benchmark_results.
      • The default benchmark does a single set, get and delete against a hashmap of a specific size. It does this thousands of times, and finds an approximate average.
      • If you would like me to include your library for benchmarking, raise an issue in github.
        • It must be in NPM
        • It must have an identical interface to JS Map
        • It must be fully written in JS. (Transpiling is acceptable) So that we can guarantee it works in the browser, not just node.

    Background

    • This repository is a reimplemented version of the npm hashmap repository. It takes that implementation as a starting point, and moves it closer to the core functionality hashmaps are designed to achieve.
    • The tests have remained mostly the same, as has some documentation, everything else has changed. The interfaces have now diverged.
