Trie Data Structure

Hey all, I’m currently working on the data structures of FCC and got to the trie data structure here:

The set up that FCC has for their Node object absolutely baffles me. For one thing, they specifically chose NOT to include a “this.value” for the Node, and also chose to use a Map() object for keys. I run into problems when writing a recursive add method for my Trie, my code here (I renamed Node to TrieNode):

var Trie = function() {
  // change code below this line
  this.root = new TrieNode();
  // change code above this line
  this.add = function(inStr){
    //let strLetters = inStr.split("");
    let initChar = inStr.slice(0, 1);
    let remStr = inStr.slice(1);

    function recurAdd(charStr){
      if(charStr.length == 1){
        let endNode = new TrieNode();
        let currNode = new TrieNode();
        let lastChar = charStr[0];
        currNode.keys.set(lastChar, endNode);
        return currNode;
        let currNode = new TrieNode();
        let charKey = charStr.slice(0,1);
        let remArr = charStr.slice(1);

        currNode.keys.set(charKey, recurAdd(remArr));
        return currNode;

    this.root.keys.set(initChar, recurAdd(remStr));

Say try to add ‘abc’, then I add ‘abe’. Because of the way they have node setup, ‘abc’ will get overwritten, since they chose to use the letters as the keys for the node. I could have included an array of Nodes as keys instead, but since it’s a Map object as opposed to a regular object, I don’t know if I could push to the array either. Am I just misinterpreting the way they want me to do this?

Nvm, I think I figured out.
