The Tree-sitter CLI allows you to develop, test, and use Tree-sitter grammars from the command line. It works on MacOS, Linux, and Windows.
You can install the
cargo install tree-sitter-cli
npm install tree-sitter-cli
You can also download a pre-built binary for your platform from the releases page.
tree-sitter binary itself has no dependencies, but specific commands have dependencies that must be present at runtime:
- To generate a parser from a grammar, you must have
nodeon your PATH.
- To run and test parsers, you must have a C and C++ compiler on your system.
tree-sitter generatecommand will generate a Tree-sitter parser based on the grammar in the current working directory. See the documentation for more information.
tree-sitter testcommand will run the unit tests for the Tree-sitter parser in the current working directory. See the documentation for more information.
tree-sitter parsecommand will parse a file (or list of file) using Tree-sitter parsers.
