The primary goal of this project is to implement an ECMAScript parser:
- Whose source code is clear, easy to follow, and aesthetically pleasing.
- That is easy to extend or modify for language experimentation purposes.
- That provides an AST structure which is easy to traverse, easy to manipulate, and is convenient for a wide variety of code transformation use cases.
AST compatibility with other parsers is not a project goal. However, it is expected that any future changes to the AST protocol will be backward compatible with previous versions.
