clj-fast

Library for playing around with low level Clojure code for performance reasons given some assumptions. Inspired by Naked Performance (with Clojure) – Tommi Reiman.

Some of the code is based on implementations in metosin's projects. Credit in code.

Usage

Requirements

Add in your project.clj:

[bsless/clj-fast "0.0.2-alpha"]

And require:

(require '[clj-fast.core :as fast])

Functions and Macros

Fast(er) Functions

  • fast-assoc: Used like assoc but doesn't take variable key-values, only one pair.
  • fast-map & fast-get: Wrappers for java.util.HashMap.
  • fast-map-merge: Slightly faster version for merge, takes only 2 maps.

Inline Macros

Like regular core functions but sequence arguments must be written explicitly or defed in advance:

(def ks [:a :b])

(fast/inline-get-in m ks)

(fast/inline-get-in m [:c :d])

(fast/inline-get-some-in m [:c :d])

(fast/inline-assoc-in m [:c :d] foo)

(fast/inline-update-in m [:c :d] inc)

(fast/inline-select-keys m [:a :b :c])

(fast/inline-merge m1 m2 m3)

Experimental implementations

See results.md for experiments' benchmark results.

Assoc

  • fast-assoc by Metosin.
  • Inlined assoc which expands the "rest" args. (not tested)

Assoc in

  • Inlined assoc-in which expands the keys sequence.

Get

  • fast-get by Metosin.

Merge

  • fast-map-merge: Metosin's implementation. Uses kv-reduce to fast-assoc all of one map into another.
  • inline-merge: inlines core's merge reduction over a sequence of maps with conj to a nested conj of all maps.
  • inline-fast-map-merge: same but with Metosin's fast-map-merge.

Get in

  • inline-get-in: given that all keys are written as explicit arguments and not a sequence, get-in can be expanded into a series of gets.
  • inline-get-some-in: same as above, but maps can be invoked on the keys. nil checks every iteration.

Assoc in

  • inline-assoc-in: same as inline-get-in but with assoc-in.

Assoc in

  • inline-update-in: same as inline-assoc-in but with update-in.

select-keys

  • inline-select-keys: same case with get-in can be done with select-keys.
