sarray

Sorted Array - uses binary search for fast insertion / reading

sarray - Sorted array in javascript

Features:

  • Uses binary-sort to insert and search in array.

Much faster than searching through a normal array, as per this (maybe unfair) benchmark:

var SortedArray = require('sarray');
 
var arr = SortedArray([5,4,2,1]);
 
arr.add(3);
 
// arr will now contain 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 
var arr = SortedArray(function(ab) {
    return a.val - b.val;
});
 
arr.add({val: 5}, {val: 3});
 
// arr now contains [{val: 3}, {val: 5}]; 

This class is actually a subclass of sorted set, except that it doesn't maintain uniqueness in the array, so take a look at https://github.com/arnorhs/node-sset for further info.
