Bin Packing Algorithm

– 09/30/12

The Bin Packing Problem is a problem where objects with a given area must be packed into a finite number of bins with a given area such that the minimum amount of bins are used.

I found this article, which goes into detail about how to implement a Bin Packing algorithm in Javascript. The author used the algorithm to layout sprites on a sprite sheet. Pretty clever.
