Chocolat Building Glue

This nothing less than an attempt to create a unified interface to all programming language implementations on earth! Nah, I'm kidding, the goal of this repo is to collect shell scripts that take a source file as input, and pass it through a compiler/interpreter/linter/etc.

Script Types

The project is organized as <language>/<tool>/<script>.sh, and there are a limited number of allowed script names:

  • run.sh this script should run the file found in the environment variable $CHOC_FILE.
  • repl.sh this script should load the file found in the environment variable $CHOC_FILE into a repl.
  • check.sh this should should perform syntactic (and optionally semantic) checking on the standard input passed to it (it's important that it uses standard input and not $CHOC_FILE since we want to be able to check as the user is typing).
  • build.sh this should build the file found in the environment variable $CHOC_FILE and put its result into $CHOC_BUILD_DIR.

If you have ideas for more scripts, please let us know.

The .chocbuild file

The optional .chocbuild file lives in the project's directory and/or user's home directory. It provides options to scripts, such as:

$CHOC_BUILD_DIR  # Where to put build products
$JAVASCRIPT_NODE_RUN_ARGUMENTS   # Arguments that javascript/node/run.sh should pass along to node

Environment Variables

A few other environment variables are provided to scripts:

$CHOC_FILE           # The path to the file
$CHOC_FILENAME       # The name of the file
$CHOC_EXT            # The file's extension
$CHOC_FILENAME_NOEXT # The name of the file with the extension removed

$CHOC_FILE_DIR       # The directory that contains the file
$CHOC_PROJECT_DIR    # THe directory of the base project (may not be the same as $CHOC_FILE_DIR)

$CHOC_TEMPFILE_1     # A path to a temporary file in which you can (please don't use mktemp since it uses the wrong location). The file will be deleted after the script exits.
$CHOC_TEMPFILE_2
$CHOC_TEMPFILE_3
$CHOC_TEMPFILE_4
$CHOC_TEMPFILE_5

common.sh

The common.sh script is prefixed to all scripts.
