Constraint List Builder
This project allows you to build a list but based on constraints that you set up.
You provide a defintion file when you initialize the object (or later), in the defintion file you set up a list of constraints. When you try adding a node to the list the constraints are checked to see if the node is allowed.
How to use
I wrote an example project on how to use the library.
npm i constraint-list-builder --save
Defining your contraints
Example of constraint structure
"id": "node1""allowedNodes": "node2" "node3"//other custom properties"id": "node2""allowedNodes": "node1"//other custom properties"id": "node3""allowedNodes": "node4"//other custom properties"id": "node4""allowedNodes"://other custom properties
id - id of the node
allowedNodes - array of ids of the nodes that are allowed to be added after the current node.
In the above example if you've added
node1 to the list you can only add
node4 cannot be added. Since
node4 does not allow any nodes to be added if
node4 is ever added to the list, no other nodes can be added after it.
