[其他] Exploring JavaScript: Typed Arrays

Typed Arrays is a relatively new feature in JavaScript. They are designed to provide an easy way to work with binary data and structures, that was hardly possible before.
  Initially, Typed Arrays were introduced for WebGL APIs. The reason behind this is that converting and guessing the type of standard JavaScript array might be too slow, while C API which is backing up WebGL might access already allocated in memory typed array.
  Typed Arrays are part of ECMAScript 2015 (also known as ES6) specification.
  Browser support

    The main "problem" with browser support is IE9, which is still quite popular, as well as some browsers handling typed arrays slightly different:
  
       
  • IE10 (and IE 10&11 mobile) does not support Uint8ClampedArray   
  • Safari 5.1 does not support Float64Array   
  • Firefox 14 and under do not have DataView yet.   
  • In versions before Safari 6, Typed Arrays are much slower than Array Objects.   
  • ArrayBuffer has no slice method in IE 10.  
  Creating typed array

  Typed array creation is relatively easy:
  1. var arr = new Uint16Array(10);
复制代码
  1. arr[0] = 0xFFFF;
复制代码
  1. console.log(arr[0]);
复制代码
Argument we are passing to array constructor is the number of elements in array (in the example above we are creating array of 10 uint16 numbers, which will take 20 bytes of memory).
  Typed arrays could be following
   Int8Array
  size in bytes: 1
  description: 8-bit two's complement signed integer
  Web IDL type: byte
  C type: int8_t
  JavaScript Operators & Typed Arrays

  You might expect that all the operations on typed arrays will be done on bits this array contains. Apparently, that's not true.
  Extending previous example:
  1. var arr = new Uint16Array(10);
复制代码
  1. arr[0] = 0xFFFF;
复制代码
  1. console.log(~arr[0]); // -65535
复制代码
ArrayBuffer & DataView

  ArrayBuffer & DataView are parts of Typed Array implementation.
   ArrayBufferis basically holding the data of Typed Array.
  Per example:
  1. var fileArrayBuffer = reader.readAsArrayBuffer(file);
复制代码
Here, ArrayBuffer will be holding all the bytes of the file. Sure, file might be in one encoding or another. E. g. to read UTF-8 characters, we need to assign Uint16 array type to this buffer:
  1. var arr = new Uint16Array(fileArrayBuffer);
复制代码
Now we can access this data in a regular way:
  1. String.fromCharCode(
复制代码
  DataViewis a bit more interesting part of implementation which is providing to read structures kept in binary data.
  E. g., you have C structure like this:
  1. struct data { unsigned int id; char[10] username;}
复制代码
We can read it from js by doing something like this:
  1. arr[0] = 0xFFFF;0
复制代码
Here also alternative API can be used, e. g.:
  A couple of use cases

  WebGL

  Buffer, pixel data and texture mappings are all using typed arrays. Example for texture mapping:
  1. arr[0] = 0xFFFF;1
复制代码
Canvas

  Yes, canvas image data is typed array:
  1. arr[0] = 0xFFFF;2
复制代码
Useful to replace/analysing colors and for doing other kinds of image manipulation.
  WebSockets

  Yes, Web Sockets do support transferring binary data and ArrayBuffer representation of data. Enabling it is quiet easy:
  1. arr[0] = 0xFFFF;3
复制代码
Other Browser APIs

  File API, XMLHttpRequest, Fetch API, window.postMessage() method and a lot of streaming APIs using typed arrays.
  A word about performance

  Array Object construction is being done inside JavaScript VM and Array Objects are being allocated inside VM's heap, while typed arrays allocated outside and involving the browser bindings.
  Sequential reads/writes to both types of arrays are nearly equally fast, while Array Object will be slower for out-of-the-bounds writes (as it will require reallocation).
  Conclusions here:
  
       
  • Typed Arrays are beneficial when you need long-sustained array with specific size and type, and for use cases mentioned above   
  • Array Objects are beneficial when you need dynamic array or when you need temporary array (because of allocation method)
