"Build Your Own Programming Language with JavaScript" slides and code

  • example.mylang shows an example of the language we want to parse
  • grammar.jison is the grammar describing the parsing and AST building rules of the language
  • codegen.js is the script that translate the AST into our target language. I forgot to emphasis that you don't have to generate JavaScript. Your target language could be whatever you desire.
  • jsconf2010.pdf are the slides from the talk.
  • parser.js generated parser.

Use the Jison online generator to play with the language and generate parsers.
