HashLog is an experimental data structure using merkle-style hashing and a time-delta inspired by lamport timestamp to create a commit-log type structure that ensures correct ordering of commits on merge, even for distributed logs (unsynchronized clocks).

FYI: This is totally an experiment!


By using merkle-style hashing we can prove the order of the commits to our log. On merge, if we can find a common hash in the past, we can be sure that all data up to this merge-point is the same for both logs. By also storing a time-delta between commits we can calculate deltas from the merge-point and ensure correct ordering of commits made to different logs.

Also; logs are great! You can build any other kind of data structure using a log.


npm install --save hashlog


import HashLog   from 'hashlog'
import { merge } from 'hashlog/utils'

let log1 = new HashLog(['data1'])
let log2 = new HashLog(['data1'])

merge(log1, log2) // Merge log2 into log1 
merge(log2, log1) // Merge log1 into log2
assert(log1.tip.chainhash == log2.tip.chainhash)
assert(log1.tip.value == log2.tip.value)
assert(log1.tip.value == 'data2')
