169. LRU - Chrome storage automatic eviction

JavaScriptAlgorithm

medium  - accepted / - tried

Chrome uses LRU algorithm to evict data when it has to.

Wactch this Youtube video for detail explanation, starting from 6:25 to 7:38.

Now you are asked to implement similar - Implement a class LRUStorage.

  1. This is of course not to reflect the true implementation in Chrome.
  2. getData and setData should both be treated as data being 'used'.
  3. considering time precision issue, your class needs to accept getTimestamp as second argument of constructor function for our tests.
interface OriginData {
  origin: string
  lastUsed: number
  size: number
  persistent: boolean
}

interface LRUStorage {
  capacity: number
  // to use the data for origin
  // return size of the data or undefined if not exist
  getData(origin: string): OriginData | undefined
  
  // updating data for origin
  // return boolean to indicate success or failure
  // If the total size exceeds capacity,
  // Least Recently Used non-persistent origin data other than itself should be evicted.

  setData(origin: string, size: number): boolean

  // manually clear data for origin
  clearData(origin: string): void

  // change data for origin to be persistent
  // it only handles existing data not the data added later
  // persistent data cannot be evicted unless manually clear it
  makePersistent(origin: string): void 
}

Bugfree ordinary solution is better than buggy fancy ones.
