Canopy is a parser compiler targeting Java, JavaScript, Python and Ruby. It takes a file describing a parsing expression grammar and compiles it into a parser module in the target language. The generated parsers have no runtime dependency on Canopy itself.

For usage documentation see canopy.jcoglan.com.

See CONTRIBUTING.md for instructions for building the project.
