package namer

import ""

Package namer has support for making different type naming systems.

This is because sometimes you want to refer to the literal type, sometimes you want to make a name for the thing you're generating, and you want to make the name based on the type. For example, if you have `type foo string`, you want to be able to generate something like `func FooPrinter(f *foo) { Print(string(*f)) }`; that is, you want to refer to a public name, a literal name, and the underlying literal name.

This package supports the idea of a "Namer" and a set of "NameSystems" to support these use cases.

Additionally, a "RawNamer" can optionally keep track of what needs to be imported.

func IC Uses

func IC(in string) string

IC ensures the first character is uppercase.

func IL Uses

func IL(in string) string

IL ensures the first character is lowercase.

func IsPrivateGoName Uses

func IsPrivateGoName(name string) bool

Returns whether a name is a private Go name.

func Joiner Uses

func Joiner(first, others func(string) string) func(pre string, in []string, post string) string

Joiner lets you specify functions that preprocess the various components of a name before joining them. You can construct e.g. camelCase or CamelCase or any other way of joining words. (See the IC and IL convenience functions.)

func NewAllLowercasePluralNamer Uses

func NewAllLowercasePluralNamer(exceptions map[string]string) *pluralNamer

NewAllLowercasePluralNamer returns a namer that returns the plural form of the input type's name, with all letters in lowercase.

func NewPrivatePluralNamer Uses

func NewPrivatePluralNamer(exceptions map[string]string) *pluralNamer

NewPrivatePluralNamer returns a namer that returns the plural form of the input type's name, starting with a lowercase letter.

func NewPublicPluralNamer Uses

func NewPublicPluralNamer(exceptions map[string]string) *pluralNamer

NewPublicPluralNamer returns a namer that returns the plural form of the input type's name, starting with a uppercase letter.

func NewRawNamer Uses

func NewRawNamer(pkg string, tracker ImportTracker) *rawNamer

NewRawNamer will return a Namer that makes a name by which you would directly refer to a type, optionally keeping track of the import paths necessary to reference the names it provides. Tracker may be nil. The 'pkg' is the full package name, in which the Namer is used - all types from that package will be referenced by just type name without referencing the package.

For example, if the type is map[string]int, a raw namer will literally return "map[string]int".

Or if the type, in package foo, is "type Bar struct { ... }", then the raw namer will return "foo.Bar" as the name of the type, and if 'tracker' was not nil, will record that package foo needs to be imported.

type DefaultImportTracker Uses

type DefaultImportTracker struct {

    // Returns true if a given types is an invalid type and should be ignored.
    IsInvalidType func(*types.Type) bool
    // Returns the final local name for the given name
    LocalName func(types.Name) string
    // Returns the "import" line for a given (path, name).
    PrintImport func(string, string) string
    // contains filtered or unexported fields

ImportTracker may be passed to a namer.RawNamer, to track the imports needed for the types it names.

TODO: pay attention to the package name (instead of renaming every package).

func NewDefaultImportTracker Uses

func NewDefaultImportTracker(local types.Name) DefaultImportTracker

func (*DefaultImportTracker) AddType Uses

func (tracker *DefaultImportTracker) AddType(t *types.Type)

func (*DefaultImportTracker) AddTypes Uses

func (tracker *DefaultImportTracker) AddTypes(types ...*types.Type)

func (*DefaultImportTracker) ImportLines Uses

func (tracker *DefaultImportTracker) ImportLines() []string

func (*DefaultImportTracker) LocalNameOf Uses

func (tracker *DefaultImportTracker) LocalNameOf(path string) string

LocalNameOf returns the name you would use to refer to the package at the specified path within the body of a file.

func (*DefaultImportTracker) PathOf Uses

func (tracker *DefaultImportTracker) PathOf(localName string) (string, bool)

PathOf returns the path that a given localName is referring to within the body of a file.

type ImportTracker Uses

type ImportTracker interface {
    LocalNameOf(packagePath string) string
    PathOf(localName string) (string, bool)
    ImportLines() []string

ImportTracker allows a raw namer to keep track of the packages needed for import. You can implement yourself or use the one in the generation package.

type NameStrategy Uses

type NameStrategy struct {
    Prefix, Suffix string
    Join           func(pre string, parts []string, post string) string

    // Add non-meaningful package directory names here (e.g. "proto") and
    // they will be ignored.
    IgnoreWords map[string]bool

    // If > 0, prepend exactly that many package directory names (or as
    // many as there are).  Package names listed in "IgnoreWords" will be
    // ignored.
    // For example, if Ignore words lists "proto" and type Foo is in
    // pkg/server/frobbing/proto, then a value of 1 will give a type name
    // of FrobbingFoo, 2 gives ServerFrobbingFoo, etc.
    PrependPackageNames int

    // A cache of names thus far assigned by this namer.

NameStrategy is a general Namer. The easiest way to use it is to copy the Public/PrivateNamer variables, and modify the members you wish to change.

The Name method produces a name for the given type, of the forms: Anonymous types: <Prefix><Type description><Suffix> Named types: <Prefix><Optional Prepended Package name(s)><Original name><Suffix>

In all cases, every part of the name is run through the capitalization functions.

The IgnoreWords map can be set if you have directory names that are semantically meaningless for naming purposes, e.g. "proto".

Prefix and Suffix can be used to disambiguate parallel systems of type names. For example, if you want to generate an interface and an implementation, you might want to suffix one with "Interface" and the other with "Implementation". Another common use-- if you want to generate private types, and one of your source types could be "string", you can't use the default lowercase private namer. You'll have to add a suffix or prefix.

func NewPrivateNamer Uses

func NewPrivateNamer(prependPackageNames int, ignoreWords ...string) *NameStrategy

NewPrivateNamer is a helper function that returns a namer that makes camelCase names. See the NameStrategy struct for an explanation of the arguments to this constructor.

func NewPublicNamer Uses

func NewPublicNamer(prependPackageNames int, ignoreWords ...string) *NameStrategy

NewPublicNamer is a helper function that returns a namer that makes CamelCase names. See the NameStrategy struct for an explanation of the arguments to this constructor.

func (*NameStrategy) Name Uses

func (ns *NameStrategy) Name(t *types.Type) string

See the comment on NameStrategy.

type NameSystems Uses

type NameSystems map[string]Namer

NameSystems is a map of a system name to a namer for that system.

type Namer Uses

type Namer interface {
    Name(*types.Type) string

Namer takes a type, and assigns a name.

The purpose of this complexity is so that you can assign coherent side-by-side systems of names for the types. For example, you might want a public interface, a private implementation struct, and also to reference literally the type name.

Note that it is safe to call your own Name() function recursively to find the names of keys, elements, etc. This is because anonymous types can't have cycles in their names, and named types don't require the sort of recursion that would be problematic.

type Names Uses

type Names map[*types.Type]string

Names is a map from Type to name, as defined by some Namer.

type Orderer Uses

type Orderer struct {

Orderer produces an ordering of types given a Namer.

func (*Orderer) OrderTypes Uses

func (o *Orderer) OrderTypes(typeList []*types.Type) []*types.Type

OrderTypes assigns a name to every type, and returns a list sorted by those names.

func (*Orderer) OrderUniverse Uses

func (o *Orderer) OrderUniverse(u types.Universe) []*types.Type

OrderUniverse assigns a name to every type in the Universe, including Types, Functions and Variables, and returns a list sorted by those names.
