Shift Validator

About

We call an AST valid if it represents an ECMAScript program. The Shift AST format was designed to permit the fewest possible conforming ASTs that are not valid. For various reasons, it is impossible to exclude all invalid ASTs. This module distinguishes valid Shift format ASTs from invalid ones.

Status

Stable.

Note on IfStatements

Most of the ways in which a well-typed AST can fail to be valid are clear from the grammar or spec. One special case is worth calling attention to: an IfStatement with an alternate nested inside the consequent of an IfStatement that lacks an alternate is not valid. No possible source text can produce this AST.

Installation

npm install shift-validator

Usage

import isValid, {Validator} from "shift-validator";
isValid(myAst); // Boolean
Validator.validate(myAst); // [ValidationError]
