Install

ES Module

Download only the ES module file:

curl -O https://raw.githubusercontent.com/kleinfreund/reverse-iterable-array/master/src/reverse-iterable-array.mjs

Node.js package

(Requires Node version 8.5 or higher for ES module support)

Installs the node package as a dependency. It doesn’t have any dependencies itself.

npm install --save reverse-iterable-array

Note, that Node.js version 8.5 or higher is required, as it comes with experimental support for ES modules. If you don’t want to use it as an ES module, you will need to transpile the package yourself.

Usage

import { ReverseIterableArray } from './src/reverse-iterable-array.mjs';
 
const array = new ReverseIterableArray();

For more usage examples, clone the repository and run:

npm install && npm run examples

Then, open http://127.0.0.1:8080/examples in your browser.

Tests

… with Node’s experimental ES module feature:

npm test

Documentation

A ReverseIterableArray object iterates its elements in insertion or reverse-insertion order — a for...of loop returns the array’s elements for each iteration.

Constructor

Syntax

new ReverseIterableArray([iterable])

Parameters:

Usage

const array = new ReverseIterableArray();
Array
const array = new ReverseIterableArray([1, 2, 3]);
NodeList
const array = new ReverseIterableArray(...document.querySelectorAll('div'));

entries()

Returns an iterator containing the [index, element] pairs for each element in the ReverseIterableArray object in insertion order.

An iterator containing the same pairs in reverse-insertion order can be obtained with entries().reverseIterator().

Syntax

array.entries();

Return value:

A new ReverseIterableArray iterator object.

forEachReverse()

The forEachReverse() method executes a provided function once per each [index, element] pair in the ReverseIterableArray object, in reverse-insertion order.

Syntax

array.forEachReverse(callback[, thisArg]);

Parameters:

  • callback: Function to execute for each element.
  • thisArg: Value to use as this when executing callback.

keys()

Returns an iterator containing the indices for each element in the ReverseIterableArray object in insertion order.

An iterator containing the same indices in reverse-insertion order can be obtained with keys().reverseIterator().

Syntax

array.keys();

Return value:

A new ReverseIterableArray iterator object.

reverseIterator()

In theory, following the semantics of [Symbol.iterator](), this should be [Symbol.reverseIterator](). However, as a developer, I cannot define a well-known symbol myself and make use of it. In the future, the a proposal like The ReverseIterable Interface, by Lee Byron might make it’s way into the specification. For the time being, the reverseIterator() function serves the same purpose.

Syntax

array.reverseIterator();

Return value:

The array reverse-iterator function, which is the values().reverseIterator() function by default.

values()

Returns an iterator containing the elements in the ReverseIterableArray object in insertion order.

An iterator containing the same elements in reverse-insertion order can be obtained with values().reverseIterator().

Syntax

array.values();

Return value:

A new ReverseIterableArray iterator object.

[Symbol.iterator]()

Returns the array iterator function. By default, this is the values() function.

Syntax

array[Symbol.iterator]();

Return value:

The array iterator function, which is the entries() function by default.

Usage

const array = new ReverseIterableArray(1, 2, 4);
 
const iterator = array[Symbol.iterator]();
 
iterator.next().value;
//> 1
 
iterator.next().value;
//> 2
 
iterator.next().value;
//> 4
 
iterator.next().value;
//> undefined

[Symbol.toStringTag]()

The well-known symbol Symbol.toStringTag is accessed internally when callig Object.prototype.toString().

iteratorFor()

Returns an iterator containing the [index, element] pairs for each element in the ReverseIterableArray object in insertion order starting with the pair specified by the index parameter.

This allows starting iteration at a specific element in the array.

An iterator containing the same pairs in reverse-insertion order can be obtained with iteratorFor(index).reverseIterator().

Syntax

array.iteratorFor(index);

Parameters:

  • index: Required. The index of the element to start iterating from.

Return value:

A new ReverseIterableArray iterator object.
