npm status build status dependency status coverage status
A simple round robin tournament match scheduler using the standard scheduling algorithm.

Usage

Simply give the number of players (with an optional players array), and it will spit out the array of rounds necessary:
var robin = require('roundrobin');
robin(6);
[ [ [ 1, 6 ], [ 2, 5 ], [ 3, 4 ] ],
  [ [ 5, 1 ], [ 6, 4 ], [ 2, 3 ] ],
  [ [ 1, 4 ], [ 5, 3 ], [ 6, 2 ] ],
  [ [ 3, 1 ], [ 4, 2 ], [ 5, 6 ] ],
  [ [ 1, 2 ], [ 3, 6 ], [ 4, 5 ] ] ]

// or with names supplied
robin(6, ['clux', 'lockjaw', 'pibbz', 'xeno', 'e114', 'eclipse']);
[ [ [ 'clux', 'eclipse' ], [ 'lockjaw', 'e114' ], [ 'pibbz', 'xeno' ] ],
  [ [ 'e114', 'clux' ], [ 'eclipse', 'xeno' ], [ 'lockjaw', 'pibbz' ] ],
  [ [ 'clux', 'xeno' ], [ 'e114', 'pibbz' ], [ 'eclipse', 'lockjaw' ] ],
  [ [ 'pibbz', 'clux', ], [ 'xeno', 'lockjaw' ], [ 'e114', 'eclipse' ] ],
  [ [ 'clux', 'lockjaw' ], [ 'pibbz', 'eclipse' ], [ 'xeno', 'e114' ] ] ]

Home/Away Matches

In version 2.0.0 or greater, the outputted order of the match arrays denote which player is "home" or "away":
[ 'away', 'home' ] // index 0 is away and index 1 is home
This can be used to indicate home/away in sports, white/black in chess, etc.
