set

An implementation of Sets in JavaScript

Set.js

Create an array of items and then pass it to Set. var Set = require('./set') var set = new Set([0,1,1]) And then when we get it set.get() // [0,1]

This module casts inputs into strings. Objects and Arrays are turned into JSON with JSON.stringify. This makes this module fairly simple as it doesn't allow complex objects to be stored. However, given that Objects and Arrays are now JSONified, these objects can now be compared according to their JSON output. To make two objects unique, give them a different output for their toJSON method.

In a future version, this module would use a javascript Set as the datastructure and therefore won't have this limitation, but Sets are quite ready yet.

There are various Set functions available

  • Set#unique given an array, return an array with all duplicates removed.
  • Set#contains return whether a given property is available.

  • Set#empty return whether the set in empty.

  • Set#size return the size of the Set.

  • Set#get return the set as an Array.

  • Set#add add an item to the Set.

  • Set#remove remove an item from the set.

  • Set#clear remove all items from the set.

  • Set#union return a new set that is the union of the set with another one.

  • Set#intersect return a new set that is the intersection of the set with another one.

  • Set#difference return a new set that is the difference of the set with another one.

  • Set#find return an array with all items that match the predicate.
