            How to sort and chunk a dependency tree of actions, so you can batch as many actions as possible together at each step?
            Asked 2022-Jan-20 at 13:20

            Say you have a bunch of actions for creating/inserting records into a bunch of different database tables. You have some records which can be inserted without any dependency on the output of any other insert. You have some which need to wait for one other thing to finish. And you have others that need to wait for many things to finish, which might finish at different times in the flow.

            How can you write an algorithm which would sort and chunk the actions in the dependency tree so the inserts / database actions can be optimally batched? By optimally batched, I mean if you can insert 10 records into the same table at once, then do that. Any time you can batch insert, you should, to minimize the number of database calls/inserts.

            Here is a snippet from the example code I whipped together with a fake sequence of actions using a simple data structure to capture all the required information.

            Your data structure isn't clear to me. What are the single letter ids p, q, etc.? I also don't understand the role of tables. You can insert multiple items in the same table in one write, no? I'm assuming these tihngs don't matter in the root sequencing problem.

            I'm treating the set field as a "job" and the corresponding keys mentioned in the inputs as dependencies: jobs that must be completed before it.

            I don't have time to be thorough here, and I don't have a javascript environment handy, so this is in Python.

            Let's extract a dependency graph from the the verbose data structure. Then look for "levels." The first level is all nodes with no dependencies. The second is all nodes with dependencies met in any previous level, etc. Rinse and repeate.

            Note unlike I was thinking in my note in comments, this is not a level graph by the traditional definition.

            Also, I'm not going to bother with data structures to make this efficient. You could do it in O(n log n) time. My code is O(n^2).

            Sorry if I'm misinterpreting your question. Also sorry for untested, possibly buggy implementation here.



            Return value evaluation of a stored function inside a loop with let variable
            Asked 2022-Jan-19 at 11:17

            To my understanding, if the loop variable of a for loop is defined with var, then any change on that variable is applied globally. for example:



            Answered 2022-Jan-19 at 11:17

            however, the above code prints 3. What is the reason for this?

            Because you assign 3 to the i variable that printNumTwo closes over. It doesn't matter that the assignment happens after printNumTwo is created, only that it is the variable that printNumTwo is using.

            The difference between var and let in for loops is that a new variable is created for the body of the loop on each loop iteration with let. But you're assigning to that variable within the loop body, so the function closing over (printNumTwo) it sees that value later when you call it.

            It's exactly like this:



            JavaScript: filter array of objects using an object
            Asked 2022-Jan-09 at 20:19

            I was trying to do the following challenge from freecodecamp: and I have a couple questions about it.

            1. Why is my attempt working in my local console but not on freecodecamp? Meaning, out of all the tests, 3 out of 4 are correct in my console, but none of them is on FCC.
            2. Why is this test whatIsInAName([{ "apple": 1, "bat": 2 }, { "bat": 2 }, { "apple": 1, "bat": 2, "cookie": 2 }], { "apple": 1, "bat": 2 }) not passing if all the others are?

            • Using Object#entries, get the list of key-value pairs from source

            What the point of spread operaror in JavaScript especially on this example?
            Asked 2021-Sep-02 at 16:01

            I am studying now at FreeCodeCamp, and here is a challenge:

            "We have defined a function, copyMachine which takes arr (an array) and num (a number) as arguments. The function is supposed to return a new array made up of num copies of arr. We have done most of the work for you, but it doesn't work quite right yet. Modify the function using spread syntax so that it works correctly (hint: another method we have already covered might come in handy here!)."

            And here is a solution:



            Answered 2021-Sep-02 at 16:00

            It's the matter of reference.

            When using this syntax newArr.push(arr), you're pushing the original array from the argument, so whenever the arr changes its content, arrays inside newArr will also update since it is always the same one array.

            When using spread syntax, you're actually pushing a copy of that arr. This mean it's a new array that is not tied to the array you pass to a function

            Consider this

            Arguments Optional - why do I get a string for arguments (2)([3])?

            Answered 2020-Dec-15 at 19:13

            I am sharing my solution which is slightly different from yours. Compare it to your own. You will see that I only return inside my for loop when I get a positive match , otherwise I let the loop run. This is the biggest difference. You need to let the loop run fully and then through some mechanism keep track of the missing conditions . I have used two different variables to track the missing conditions here.



            What is wrong in my regex /(?=^[a-z]+\d{2,})(?=\w{5,})/ pattern?
            Asked 2020-Nov-10 at 08:06

            This regex has to match passwords that are greater than 5 characters long, do not begin with numbers, and have two consecutive digits.

            All the test cases are passing the regex test.

            My regex is /(?=^[a-z]+\d{2,})(?=\w{5,})/

            I have to use two positive lookaheads to solve this problem to pass the tests.

            But astr1on11aut is not passing the test. Why?
