JavaScript Algorithms and Data Structures

🇺🇦 UKRAINE IS BEING ATTACKED BY RUSSIAN ARMY. CIVILIANS ARE GETTING KILLED. RESIDENTIAL AREAS ARE GETTING BOMBED.


CI codecov repo size

This repository contains JavaScript based examples of many popular algorithms and data structures.

Each algorithm and data structure has its own separate README with related explanations and links for further reading (including ones to YouTube videos).

Read this in other languages: 简体中文, 繁體中文, 한국어, 日本語, Polski, Français, Español, Português, Русский, Türkçe, Italiana, Bahasa Indonesia, Українська, Arabic, Tiếng Việt, Deutsch

Data Structures

A data structure is a particular way of organizing and storing data in a computer so that it can be accessed and modified efficiently. More precisely, a data structure is a collection of data values, the relationships among them, and the functions or operations that can be applied to the data.

B - Beginner, A - Advanced

Algorithms

An algorithm is an unambiguous specification of how to solve a class of problems. It is a set of rules that precisely define a sequence of operations.

Algorithms by Topic

Algorithms by Paradigm

An algorithmic paradigm is a generic method or approach which underlies the design of a class of algorithms. It is an abstraction higher than the notion of an algorithm, just as an algorithm is an abstraction higher than a computer program.

How to use this repository

Install all dependencies

npm install

Run ESLint

You may want to run it to check code quality.

npm run lint

Run all tests

npm test

Run tests by name

npm test -- 'LinkedList'

Troubleshooting

If linting or testing is failing, try to delete the node_modules folder and re-install npm packages:

rm -rf ./node_modules
npm i

Also make sure that you're using a correct Node version (>=16). If you're using nvm for Node version management you may run nvm use from the root folder of the project and the correct version will be picked up.

Playground

You may play with data-structures and algorithms in ./src/playground/playground.js file and write tests for it in ./src/playground/__test__/playground.test.js.

Then just simply run the following command to test if your playground code works as expected:

npm test -- 'playground'

Big O Notation

Big O notation is used to classify algorithms according to how their running time or space requirements grow as the input size grows. On the chart below you may find most common orders of growth of algorithms specified in Big O notation.
