About

HashMap.js is a library which adds HashMaps to JavaScript. While some modern browsers support Maps, this library supports all browsers back to even IE8!

This library also works well with the Stream.js library.

Examples

Setting a value using a complex object as a key:

var statuses = new HashMap();
var user = {names: ['Paul',' PaulBGD'], logged_in: true};
statuses.put(user, 'online');

console.log('Paul\'s Status: ' + statuses.get(user));
// => Paul's Status: online

Getting a value, or adding a default one:

console.log('Paul\'s Status: ' + statuses.getOrCompute(user, function (user) {
    return database.getStatus(user);
}));
// => Paul's Status: online

Using the Stream.js library to get all online usernames:

new Stream(status.toArray())
    .filter(function (entry) { return entry.value == 'online' })
    .map(function (entry) { return entry.key.username })
    .forEach(function (username) {
        console.log(username + ' is online!');
    });

Functions
