package parser

import ""

Package parser implements a parser for JavaScript.

import (

Parse and return an AST

filename := "" // A filename is optional
src := `
    // Sample xyzzy example
        if (3.14159 > 0) {
            console.log("Hello, World.");

        var xyzzy = NaN;
        console.log("Nothing happens.");
        return xyzzy;

// Parse some JavaScript, yielding a *ast.Program and/or an ErrorList
program, err := parser.ParseFile(nil, filename, src, 0)


The parser and AST interfaces are still works-in-progress (particularly where node types are concerned) and may change in the future.


Package Files

dbg.go error.go expression.go lexer.go parser.go regexp.go scope.go statement.go

func ParseFile Uses

func ParseFile(fileSet *file.FileSet, filename string, src interface{}, mode Mode) (*ast.Program, error)

ParseFile parses the source code of a single JavaScript/ECMAScript source file and returns the corresponding ast.Program node.

If fileSet == nil, ParseFile parses source without a FileSet. If fileSet != nil, ParseFile first adds filename and src to fileSet.

The filename argument is optional and is used for labelling errors, etc.

src may be a string, a byte slice, a bytes.Buffer, or an io.Reader, but it MUST always be in UTF-8.

// Parse some JavaScript, yielding a *ast.Program and/or an ErrorList
program, err := parser.ParseFile(nil, "", `if (abc > 1) {}`, 0)

func ParseFileWithSourceMap Uses

func ParseFileWithSourceMap(fileSet *file.FileSet, filename string, javascriptSource, sourcemapSource interface{}, mode Mode) (*ast.Program, error)

func ParseFunction Uses

func ParseFunction(parameterList, body string) (*ast.FunctionLiteral, error)

ParseFunction parses a given parameter list and body as a function and returns the corresponding ast.FunctionLiteral node.

The parameter list, if any, should be a comma-separated list of identifiers.

func ReadSource Uses

func ReadSource(filename string, src interface{}) ([]byte, error)

func ReadSourceMap Uses

func ReadSourceMap(filename string, src interface{}) (*sourcemap.Consumer, error)

func TransformRegExp Uses

func TransformRegExp(pattern string) (string, error)

TransformRegExp transforms a JavaScript pattern into a Go "regexp" pattern.

re2 (Go) cannot do backtracking, so the presence of a lookahead (?=) (?!) or backreference (\1, \2, ...) will cause an error.

re2 (Go) has a different definition for \s: [\t\n\f\r ]. The JavaScript definition, on the other hand, also includes \v, Unicode "Separator, Space", etc.

If the pattern is invalid (not valid even in JavaScript), then this function returns the empty string and an error.

If the pattern is valid, but incompatible (contains a lookahead or backreference), then this function returns the transformation (a non-empty string) AND an error.

type Error Uses

type Error struct {
    Position file.Position
    Message  string

An Error represents a parsing error. It includes the position where the error occurred and a message/description.

func (Error) Error Uses

func (self Error) Error() string

type ErrorList Uses

type ErrorList []*Error

ErrorList is a list of *Errors.

func (*ErrorList) Add Uses

func (self *ErrorList) Add(position file.Position, msg string)

Add adds an Error with given position and message to an ErrorList.

func (ErrorList) Err Uses

func (self ErrorList) Err() error

Err returns an error equivalent to this ErrorList. If the list is empty, Err returns nil.

func (ErrorList) Error Uses

func (self ErrorList) Error() string

Error implements the Error interface.

func (ErrorList) Len Uses

func (self ErrorList) Len() int

func (ErrorList) Less Uses

func (self ErrorList) Less(i, j int) bool

func (*ErrorList) Reset Uses

func (self *ErrorList) Reset()

Reset resets an ErrorList to no errors.

func (ErrorList) Sort Uses

func (self ErrorList) Sort()

func (ErrorList) Swap Uses

func (self ErrorList) Swap(i, j int)

type Mode Uses

type Mode uint

A Mode value is a set of flags (or 0). They control optional parser functionality.

const (
    IgnoreRegExpErrors Mode = 1 << iota // Ignore RegExp compatibility errors (allow backtracking)
    StoreComments                       // Store the comments from source to the comments map

type Parser Uses

type Parser interface {
    Scan() (tkn token.Token, literal string, idx file.Idx)

func NewParser Uses

func NewParser(filename, src string) Parser

Returns a new Parser.
