binary-variations

1.0.2 • Public • Published

Installation

Install binary-variations as dependency (append --save-dev for development only):

npm install binary-variations

Explanation

Assume you have given a list of items, which you want to know all possible combinations who qualify that those items stay in order as they are defined and they don't repeat, but items can be omitted.

E.g. assume a list of a, b, c (or in programming terms ['a', 'b', 'c']).

a b c
a
b
a b
c
a c
b c
a b c

Which gives us 7 combinations, or as it turns out [(2^n) - 1] - where n is the number of items. In this case: (2^3) - 1 = (2*2*2) - 1 = 8 - 1 = 7

Actually this is equal to the possible combinations of n bits -1.

1 bit 2 bit 3 bit
1 0 0
0 1 0
1 1 0
0 0 1
1 0 1
0 1 1
1 1 1

binaryVariations ⇒ Array

Computes all possible binary ordered permutations of a given variations array, considering optional inclusion/exclusion filter.

Returns: Array - - Returns an array of possible binary, ordered permutations.

Param Type Default Description
variations Array A array of variations who's binary, ordered permutations you want to compute.
[filter] Object A filter object containing inclusion or exclusion rules.
[filter.include] Array An array of items or combination of items to include.
[filter.exclude] Array An array of items or combination of items to exclude.
[filter.precedence] boolean true Whether the inclusion filter takes precedence or not.
[callback] function A Callback to call for every matched combination.

Example (All permutations)

 
var binaryVariations = require('binary-variations');
 
binaryVariations(['a', 'b', 'c']);
=> [["a"], ["b"], ["a", "b"], ["c"], ["a", "c"], ["b", "c"], ["a", "b", "c"]]

Example (Inclusion)

var binaryVariations = require('binary-variations');
 
binaryVariations(['a', 'b', 'c'], {
 // include only 'a' or containing 'a' and 'b' or containing 'b' and 'c'
 include: [ 'a', ['a', 'b'], ['b', 'c'] ]
});
=> [["a"], ["a", "b"], ["b", "c"], ["a", "b", "c"]]

Example (Exclusion)

var binaryVariations = require('binary-variations');
 
binaryVariations(['a', 'b', 'c'], {
 // exclude only 'a' or containing 'a' and 'b' or containing 'b' and 'c'
 exclude: [ 'a', ['a', 'b'], ['b', 'c'] ]
});
=> [["b"], ["c"], ["a", "c"]]

binaryVariations.expect(variations) ⇒ number

Returns the number of all possible variations. Which is the sum of (2^n)-1.

Kind: static method of binaryVariations
Returns: number - - Returns the amount of possible combinations.

Param Type Description
variations Array The array of possible variations.

Example

var binaryVariations = require('binary-variations');
var expect = binaryVariations.expect;
 
expect( ['a'] );
// => 1
 
expect( ['a', 'b'] );
// => 3
 
expect( ['a', 'b', 'c'] );
// => 7
 
expect( ['a', 'b', 'c', 'd'] );
// => 15

binaryVariations.join(variations, [separator], [prefix], [suffix]) ⇒ string

The join() function joins all element of variations into a string.

Kind: static method of binaryVariations
Returns: string - - Returns all elements of variations joined into a string.

Param Type Default Description
variations Array The variations array to join.
[separator] string "," Specifies a string to separate each element of the array.
[prefix] string The prefix prepended.
[suffix] string The suffix appended.

Example (Default separator)

 
var binaryVariations = require('binary-variations');
var join = binaryVariations.join;
 
join( ['a', 'b', 'c'] );
=> 'a,b,c'

Example (Custom separator)

 
var binaryVariations = require('binary-variations');
var join = binaryVariations.join;
 
join( ['a', 'b', 'c'], '-' );
=> 'a-b-c'

Example (Prefix)

 
var binaryVariations = require('binary-variations');
var join = binaryVariations.join;
 
join( ['a', 'b', 'c'] , ',', '-' );
=> '-a,b,c'

Example (Suffix)

 
var binaryVariations = require('binary-variations');
var join = binaryVariations.join;
 
join( ['a', 'b', 'c'] , ',', '', '-' );
=> 'a,b,c-'
