Fast cartesian product.

Retrieves every possible combination between several arrays (cartesian product).

Fastest available library in JavaScript.

When producing millions of combinations or combining hundreds of arrays, big-cartesian should be used instead.

Testimonials

We are now using this library for ourworldindata.org and have seen an almost 50-fold performance increase from the naive method we used before!

Example

import fastCartesian from 'fast-cartesian'

console.log(
  fastCartesian([
    ['red', 'blue'],
    ['circle', 'square'],
  ]),
)
// [
//   [ 'red', 'circle' ],
//   [ 'red', 'square' ],
//   [ 'blue', 'circle' ],
//   [ 'blue', 'square' ]
// ]

// Return initial indexes
console.log(
  fastCartesian(
    [
      ['red', 'blue'],
      ['circle', 'square'],
    ].map(Object.entries),
  ),
)
// [
//   [ [ '0', 'red' ], [ '0', 'circle' ] ],
//   [ [ '0', 'red' ], [ '1', 'square' ] ],
//   [ [ '1', 'blue' ], [ '0', 'circle' ] ],
//   [ [ '1', 'blue' ], [ '1', 'square' ] ]
// ]

Demo

You can try this library:

Install

npm install fast-cartesian

This package works in both Node.js >=18.18.0 and browsers.

This is an ES module. It must be loaded using an import or import() statement, not require(). If TypeScript is used, it must be configured to output ES modules, not CommonJS.

API

fastCartesian(inputs)

inputs: Array<Array>
Return value: Array<Array>

Returns a two-dimensional Array where each row is a combination of inputs.
