A thread safe implementation of the MinHeap and MaxHeap

Project description

Hipster [Heap*]

Description

Hipster provides a thread-safe implementation of the MinHeap and MaxHeap. Each collection type exposes a simple API to push, pop, peek, remove and clear. The data structure is built on top of the heapq algorithm.

Object Usage

For adding an object to the heap, the object needs to implement it's comparator logic.

class GitRepo:
    def __init__(self, url, stars, forks):
        self.url = url
        self.stars = stars
        self.forks = forks

    # The object needs to implement the following methods
    def __eq__(self, other):
        return self.name == other.name and self.stars == other.stars and self.forks == other.forks

    def __ne__(self, other):
        return self.name != other.name or self.stars != other.stars or self.forks != other.forks

    def __lt__(self, other):
        # The two repos are first compared based on stars then forks and then sorted lexically based on url
        if self.stars == other.stars and self.forks == other.forks return self.url < other.url

    def __le__(self, other):
        if self.stars == other.stars and self.forks == other.forks return self.url <= other.url

    def __gt__(self, other):
        if self.stars == other.stars and self.forks == other.forks return self.url > other.url

    def __ge__(self, other):
        if self.stars == other.stars and self.forks == other.forks return self.url >= other.url


Dependencies

Python 3

Installation

pip install --upgrade hipster

Usage

from hipster.max_heap import MaxHeap
from hipster.min_heap import MinHeap

max_heap = MaxHeap()           # Creates an empty MaxHeap
max_heap.push(item)            # Pushes a new item on the MaxHeap
item = max_heap.peek()         # Returns the largest item from the heap without removing it, throws HeapError when called on an empty Heap
item = max_heap.pop()          # Pops an item off the MaxHeap, throws HeapError when called on an empty Heap
max_heap.remove(item)          # Removes the item from the heap if its present, or throws HeapError if the item is not present
max_heap.clear()               # Removes all items from the heap



min_heap = MinHeap()           # Creates an empty MinHeap
min_heap.push(item)            # Pushes a new item on the MinHeap
item = min_heap.peek()         # Returns the samllest item from the heap without removing it, throws HeapError when called on an empty Heap
item = min_heap.pop()          # Pops an item off the MinHeap, throws HeapError when called on an empty Heap
min_heap.remove(item)          # Removes the item from the heap if its present, or throws HeapError if the item is not present
min_heap.clear()               # Removes all items from the heap
