Latest commit 344d655 Dec 4, 2011 @Constellation fix when lookahead check is used, comment is skipped, and "index < le…
…ngth"

check is not works.

example:
  esprima.parse('{ print("HELLO"); ');

  don't stop. because last whitespace ' ' prevents making "index < length"
  true.

so using index < length check in only scanner phase and using matchEOF in
parser phase.

Esprima (esprima.org) is an experimental ECMAScript (also popularly known as JavaScript) parsing infrastructure for multipurpose analysis. It is also written in ECMAScript.

Esprima can be used in a web browser:

<script src="esprima.js"></script>

or in a Node.js application via the package manager:

npm install esprima

A very simple example:

esprima.parse('var answer=42').body[0].declarations[0].init

produces the following object:

{ type: 'Literal', value: 42 }

Esprima is still in the development, for now please check the wiki documentation.

Since it is not comprehensive nor complete, refer to the issue tracker for known problems and future plans.
