polyglot

Build Status

poly is a command-line tool that determines project contents. The goal is to able to point it to any directory and get an accurate, complete, and informative summary of its contents.

Screenshot of sample output

It also has the secondary goal of advancing the state-of-the art for ATS, by writing practical, distributable software and supporting tooling.

Pitch

Reasons to use polyglot:

  • Accurate: won't confuse Coq and Verilog
  • Fast: polyglot is faster than all other tools
  • Pretty: magenta output

Reasons not to use polyglot:

  • Written in ATS
  • Best on Linux
  • No regex-based exclusions
  • Doesn't count block comments
  • Multiline string bug.

Benchmarks

On the Rust repo:

Tool Language Time
polyglot ATS 134.6 ms
loc Rust 139.6 ms
scc Go 225.4 ms
tokei Rust 262.6 ms
gocloc Go 923.9 ms
cloc Perl 5.610 s
enry Go 6.926 s
linguist Ruby 20.16 s

For more extensive benchmarks, see my blog post with some additional data.

Heuristics

Polyglot distinguishes itself from tokei, gocloc, scc, and loc by being able to disambiguate file names. Thus, poly will not confuse Happy for Yacc (for instance).

Installation

From a Script

The easiest way to install is to use the installation script, like so:

curl -sSl https://raw.githubusercontent.com/vmchale/polyglot/master/bash/install.sh | sh -s

You can optionally install compleat for shell completions as well.

Vim Plugin

There is a vim plugin available which can count lines of code in a project.

Documentation

You can view manpages for poly with

man poly

Building for Hacking

You can install ats-pkg with

curl -sSl https://raw.githubusercontent.com/vmchale/atspkg/master/bash/install.sh | sh -s

And then build poly with

git clone git@github.com:vmchale/polyglot.git
cd polyglot
atspkg build --pkg-args './gc.dhall'

This will put a binary at target/poly.

If you are on Mac, you may have to replace the last line with

atspkg build --pkg-args './mac.dhall'

Testing

To run the test suite

atspkg test --pkg-args './gc.dhall'
