Shift Parser

About

This module provides an ECMAScript parser that produces a Shift format AST.

Status

Stable.

The parser supports version 6 (release candidate 2) of the ECMA-262 standard.

Installation

npm install shift-parser

Usage

import parse from "shift-parser";
let ast = parse("/* ECMAScript program text */");
import {parseScript, parseModule} from "shift-parser";
let scriptAST = parseScript("/* ECMAScript Script text */");
let moduleAST = parseModule("/* ECMAScript Module text */");

Or in node.js:

var parseScript = require("shift-parser").parseScript;
var scriptAST = parseScript("/* ECMAScript Script text */");

Location information is available in environments which support WeakMap via an alternative interface:

let {parseScriptWithLocation, parseModuleWithLocation} = require("shift-parser");
let {tree, locations, comments} = parseScriptWithLocation("2 + 3 /* = 5 */");
let threeNode = tree.statements[0].expression.right;
locations.get(threeNode); // { start: { line: 1, column: 4, offset: 4 }, end: { line: 1, column: 5, offset: 5 } }
comments; // [ { text: ' = 5 ', type: 'MultiLine', start: { line: 1, column: 6, offset: 6 }, end: { line: 1, column: 15, offset: 15 } } ]
