finitedomain Build Status

Finite domain constraint solver, originally based on FD.js.

This is very much a WIP.

API is bound to change, consider yourself warned.


npm install finitedomain


Find all numbers between 10 and 20 that are bigger than 14 and smaller than 17 and not 16. Contrived? Nah.

import Solver from 'finitedomain';

let solver = new Solver();

solver.decl('A', [10, 20]);'A', 14);'A', 17);
solver.neq('A', 16);

console.log(; // -> [{A: 15}]

Or with a DSL:

import Solver from 'finitedomain';

let solver = new Solver().imp(`
  : A [10 20]
  A > 14
  A < 17
  A != 16


console.log(; // -> [{A: 15}]

For the DSL syntax see the cfg. For other details see the extensive test suite.


There are a few grunt tasks and bash scripts hooked up to npm. This repo also uses git hooks for pre- and post commit hooks.

As a general rule, ./build is used for any temporary output, including code coverage reports and temporary build files when producing a dist.

Then ./dist only contains final builds (./dist/finitedomain.dist.min.js and for some tasks ./dist/browser.js).

Note that both ./build and ./dist are cleared at the start of almost every (grunt) task.

(These tasks obviously require an npm install)

Grunt tasks:

  • grunt clean: removes ./dist and ./build
  • grunt build: a direct alias for dist
  • grunt dist: lint, test, build, and minify to produce a real dist build
  • grunt distq: create a dist but skip linting, testing, and code coverage. Also produces a copy in ./dist/browser.js
  • grunt distheat: creates a dist but instead of minification as the last step it beautifies. Used for HeatFiler, a count based heatmap profiler. Copies to browser.js.
  • grunt distbug: creates a build without removing test artifacts or minification. In case you need proper stack traces in other projects.
  • grunt coverage: runs all tests in the code coverage tool
  • grunt test: runs linting and all tests
  • grunt testq: runs tests without linting
  • grunt watch:q: runs distq whenever a file changes
  • grunt watch:h: runs distheat whenever a file changes
  • grunt watch:b: runs distbug whenever a file changes

Bash / npm scripts:

  • npm run lint: run eslint with dist config (slightly stricter than dev). Exits non-zero if it fails.
  • npm run lintdev: run eslint with dev config (allows console.log, debugger, etc). No non-zero exit for failures.
  • npm run lintfix: runs eslint in the fix mode
