CP in nodejs

Can you provide article to get started competitive programming in javascript with node.
I am currently using java, but sometimes in OA requires JS also for solving questions. Can you provide a bit detail about npm packages that will be helpful for stuff like sorting, comparator, priorityqueue , arraylist etc

I have submitted a few codes in nodeJs. Here is the starter template

'use strict';

process.stdin.resume();
process.stdin.setEncoding('utf-8');

let inputString = '';
let currentLine = 0;

process.stdin.on('data', inputStdin => {
    inputString += inputStdin;
});

process.stdin.on('end', _ => {
    inputString = inputString.trim().split('\n');    
    main();    
});

function readLine(){
    return inputString[currentLine++];
}

function main(){
    // input in nodeJs
	let test = parseInt(readLine(),10);
	while(test--){
		let n = parseInt(readLine(),10);
        // output in nodeJs
		if(n%2 == 0)
			console.log('Y');
		else
			console.log('N');
	}
}
  1. I ain’t sure how to solve interactive problems using node as it seems it reads all input at once and the parses them as asked.
  2. I won’t recommend using nodeJs (at least on codechef) as I have witnessed situations where solution with same complexity, passes in c++/ python but gets TLE in node (maybe because problem settlers don’t check the solution in this language or maybe the time multiplier is low for it or maybe fast i/o tricks > good algo).

Here are some of my other solutions using nodeJs:
1   2   3   4   5   6   7   8   9
Though these are very basic, going through them will give you a basic overview of common syntax/ ds. If you have more time, you can scroll back to my submission history to find more (if any).

Thanks, What about heap, which is prioirtyqueue in java.

Assuming you meant javascript, honestly I didn’t continue with nodeJs due to above mentioned reasons. You may wait and expect any nodeJs experienced programmer to answer this question or go to google/ submission list of some problem that requires those data-structures and learn how to use them in Js.
