vtree

A realtime tree diffing algorithm

Please note that this now lives under https://github.com/Matt-Esch/virtual-dom and all related issues shoud be opened there. This repository will eventually become a build artifact of virtual-dom for developers with an advanced usage pattern.

Motivation

vtree currently exists as part of virtual-dom. It is used for imitating diff operations between two vnode structures that imitate the structure of the active DOM node structure in the browser.

Example

var VNode = require("vtree/vnode")
var diff = require("vtree/diff")

var leftNode = new VNode("div")
var rightNode = new VNode("text")

var patches = diff(leftNode, rightNode)
/*
  -> {
    a: lefNode,
    0: vpatch<REPLACE>(rightNode) // a replace operation for the first node
  }
*/

Installation

npm install vtree
