algorithms_illuminated VS TheAlgorithms

Compare algorithms_illuminated vs TheAlgorithms and see what are their differences.


This repository contains a collection of Python implementations of classic algorithms covered in the Algorithms Illuminated book series (better known as the Stanford Algorithms MOOC). So far, I am building correctness and (where applicable for comparisons) efficiency test cases for each algorithm or pulling test cases from the following repository: (by andrewdoss)
