    tinybench

    Benchmark your code easily with Tinybench, a simple, tiny and light-weight 7KB (2KB minified and gzipped) benchmarking library! You can run your benchmarks in multiple JavaScript runtimes, Tinybench is completely based on the Web APIs with proper timing using process.hrtime or performance.now.

    • Accurate and precise timing based on the environment
    • Event and EventTarget compatible events
    • Statistically analyzed values
    • Calculated Percentiles
    • Fully detailed results
    • No dependencies

    In case you need more tiny libraries like tinypool or tinyspy, please consider submitting an RFC

    Installing

    $ npm install -D tinybench

    Usage

    You can start benchmarking by instantiating the Bench class and adding benchmark tasks to it.

    import { Bench } from 'tinybench';
    
    const bench = new Bench({ time: 100 });
    
    bench
      .add('switch 1', () => {
        let a = 1;
        let b = 2;
        const c = a;
        a = b;
        b = c;
      })
      .add('switch 2', () => {
        let a = 1;
        let b = 10;
        a = b + a;
        b = a - b;
        a = b - a;
      });
    
    await bench.run();
    
    console.table(bench.tasks.map(({ name, result }) => ({ "Task Name": name, "Average Time (ps)": result?.mean! * 1000, "Variance (ps)": result?.variance! * 1000 })));
    
    // Output:
    // ┌─────────┬────────────┬────────────────────┬────────────────────┐
    // │ (index) │ Task Name  │ Average Time (ps)  │   Variance (ps)    │
    // ├─────────┼────────────┼────────────────────┼────────────────────┤
    // │    0    │ 'switch 1' │ 1.8458325710527104 │ 1.2113875253341617 │
    // │    1    │ 'switch 2' │ 1.8746935152109603 │ 1.2254725890767446 │
    // └─────────┴────────────┴────────────────────┴────────────────────┘

    The add method accepts a task name and a task function, so it can benchmark it! This method returns a reference to the Bench instance, so it's possible to use it to create an another task for that instance.

    Note that the task name should always be unique in an instance, because Tinybench stores the tasks based on their names in a Map.

    Also note that tinybench does not log any result by default. You can extract the relevant stats from bench.tasks or any other API after running the benchmark, and process them however you want.

    Bench

    The Benchmark instance for keeping track of the benchmark tasks and controlling them.

    Options:

    export type Options = {

       */
      teardown?: Hook;
    };
    
    export type Hook = (task: Task, mode: "warmup" | "run") => void | Promise<void>;
    • async run(): run the added tasks that were registered using the add method
    • async warmup(): warm up the benchmark tasks
    • reset(): reset each task and remove its result
    • add(name: string, fn: Fn): add a benchmark task to the task map
      • Fn: () => any | Promise<any>
    • remove(name: string): remove a benchmark task from the task map
    • get results(): (TaskResult | undefined)[]: (getter) tasks results as an array
    • get tasks(): Task[]: (getter) tasks as an array
    • getTask(name: string): Task | undefined: get a task based on the name

    Task

    A class that represents each benchmark task in Tinybench. It keeps track of the results, name, Bench instance, the task function and the number of times the task function has been executed.

    • constructor(bench: Bench, name: string, fn: Fn)
    • bench: Bench
    • name: string: task name
    • fn: Fn: the task function
    • runs: number: the number of times the task function has been executed
    • result?: TaskResult: the result object
    • async run(): run the current task and write the results in Task.result object
    • async warmup(): warm up the current task
    • setResult(result: Partial<TaskResult>): change the result object values
    • reset(): reset the task to make the Task.runs a zero-value and remove the Task.result object

    TaskResult

    the benchmark task result object.

    export type TaskResult = {
    
      /*
       * the last error that was thrown while running the task
       */
      error?: unknown;
    
      /**
       * The amount of time in milliseconds to run the benchmark task (cycle).
       */
      totalTime: number;
    
      /**
       * the minimum value in the samples
       */
      min: number;
      /**
       * the maximum value in the samples
       */
      max: number;
    
      /**

       * how long each operation takes (ms)
       */
      period: number;
    
      /**
       * task samples of each task iteration time (ms)
       */
      samples: number[];
    
      /**
       * samples mean/average (estimate of the population mean)
       */
      mean: number;
    
      /**
       * samples variance (estimate of the population variance)
       */
      variance: number;
    
      /**
       * samples standard deviation (estimate of the population standard deviation)
       */
      sd: number;
    
      /**

       */
      df: number;
    
      /**
       * critical value of the samples
       */
      critical: number;
    
      /**
       * margin of error
       */
      moe: number;
    
      /**
       * relative margin of error
       */
      rme: number;
    
      /**
       * p75 percentile
       */
      p75: number;
    
      /**
       * p99 percentile
       */
      p99: number;
    
      /**
       * p995 percentile
       */
      p995: number;
    
      /**
       * p999 percentile
       */
      p999: number;
    };

    Events

    Both the Task and Bench objects extend the EventTarget object, so you can attach listeners to different types of events in each class instance using the universal addEventListener and removeEventListener.

    /**
     * Bench events
     */
    export type BenchEvents =
      | "abort" // when a signal aborts
      | "complete" // when running a benchmark finishes
      | "error" // when the benchmark task throws
      | "reset" // when the reset function gets called
      | "start" // when running the benchmarks gets started
      | "warmup" // when the benchmarks start getting warmed up (before start)
      | "cycle" // when running each benchmark task gets done (cycle)
      | "add" // when a Task gets added to the Bench
      | "remove"; // when a Task gets removed of the Bench
    
    /**
     * task events
     */
    export type TaskEvents =
      | "abort"
      | "complete"
      | "error"
      | "reset"
      | "start"
      | "warmup"
      | "cycle";

    For instance:

    // runs on each benchmark task's cycle
    bench.addEventListener("cycle", (e: BenchEvent) => {
      const task = e.task!;
    });
    
    // runs only on this benchmark task's cycle
    task.addEventListener("cycle", (e: BenchEvent) => {
      const task = e.task!;
    });

    BenchEvent

    export type BenchEvent = Event & {
      task: Task | null;
    };
