Low-Level Javascript

This is a port of Esprima to Low-Level JavaScript for research and testing purposes. I made this mainly to test out LLJS, so there may be bugs... Use at your own risk!

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.

Esprima README

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

Esprima is created and maintained by Ariya Hidayat (Twitter: @ariyahidayat), with the help of many contributors.

Features

  • 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 UglifyJS parse-js (speed comparison)

Esprima runs on web browsers (IE 6+, Firefox 1+, Safari 3+, Chrome 1+, Konqueror 4.6+, Opera 8+) as well as Node.js.
