@tldraw/indices

Welcome to indices by tldraw. This library provides functions for features that rely on fractional indexing. It is based on the observable Implementing Fractional Indexing by @DavidG.

Fractional indexing is a method for creating indices between other indices without running into precision errors. This is useful when items are modeled as object maps rather than as arrays.

For example, imagine a stack of 5 cards:

const cards = {
	A: 0,
	B: 1,
	C: 2,
	D: 3,
	E: 4,
}

In a naive implementation of indexing, moving card E to the "bottom" of the stack would mean changing every item in the map.

const cards = {
	A: 1,
	B: 2,
	C: 3,
	D: 4,
	E: 0, // <-- moved to back
}

each with an index between 0 and 51. In a naive implementation of indices, moving the top card (index 51) to the bottom of the deck would mean changing its index to 0, changing the previous bottom card's index to 1, and so forth incrementing every other card's index by one.
