Gem Version Build Status Coverage Status Inline docs

Yet another Linked List implementation for Ruby (hence the somewhat awkward name).


Add this line to your application's Gemfile:

gem 'linked'

And then execute:

$ bundle

Or install it yourself as:

$ gem install linked


A basic use case is show below. For more details, for now, see the docs.

require 'linked'

# Create a list
list = Linked::List.new

# Append values
list << :value
list << 'value'

# Or create list items manually
item = Linked::Item.new 42
list.unshift item

# Remove items with #pop and #shift
list.pop.value # => 'value'

# The list behaves much like an Array
list.count # => 2
list.map(&:value) # => [42, :value]


After checking out the repo, run bin/setup to install dependencies. Then, run rake test to run the tests. You can also run bin/console for an interactive prompt that will allow you to experiment.

To install this gem onto your local machine, run bundle exec rake install. To release a new version, update the version number in version.rb, and then run bundle exec rake release, which will create a git tag for the version, push git commits and tags, and push the .gem file to rubygems.org.
