It turned out to not be any faster than the original Esprima at allocation (although it is close to the same speed), but it does perform well during traversal of the AST.
- Supports ECMAScript 5.1 with an experimental branch for ES.Next/Harmony
- Sensible format for the abstract syntax tree (AST), compatible with Mozilla Parser API
- Heavily tested (> 500 unit tests with solid 100% code coverage)
- Optional tracking of syntax node location (index-based and line-column)
- Blazing fast, up to 3x faster than
Esprima runs on web browsers (IE 6+, Firefox 1+, Safari 3+, Chrome 1+, Konqueror 4.6+, Opera 8+) as well as Node.js.
