Javascript is a non-opinionated language and allows you to do an operation in many ways. This repository tries to find which approach is faster in a range of different systems.

Installation

$ npm install -g benchmarks

Usage

$ node-benchmarks --help
Usage: node-benchmarks [options]
Options:
    -h, --help         output usage information
    -V, --version      output the version number
    -p, --path [path]  Path to output the results to
    -d, --dryrun       Run the benchmark but dont generate files

$ node-benchmarks -p myresults/
[1/21]  type_check
[2/21]  send_buf
[3/21]  manip_recv_buf

Your benchmark results will be appended to the result set.

$ node-benchmarks --dryrun
typeof x 22,545,486 ops/sec ±11.66% (30 runs sampled)
constructor check x 18,023,021 ops/sec ±9.23% (27 runs sampled)
Fastest is typeof

[1/22]  type_check
buffer x 10,889 ops/sec ±15.81% (28 runs sampled)
string+ x 53,569 ops/sec ±21.72% (27 runs sampled)
Fastest is string+

[2/22]  manip_recv_buf
filterDuplicates x 17,466 ops/sec ±7.64% (26 runs sampled)
eliminateDuplicates x 19,910 ops/sec ±7.11% (28 runs sampled)
Fastest is eliminateDuplicates

When --dryrun is used, no files are generated and the results are shown on the console.
