Character Parser #

Port of ForbesLindesay/character-parser.

Parse Dart one character at a time to look for snippets in Templates.

Installing via Pub #

Add this to your package's pubspec.yaml file:

dependencies:
    character_parser: 0.1.2

Usage #

Work out how much depth changes:

var state = parse('foo(arg1, arg2, {\n  foo: [a, b\n');
assert(state.roundDepth == 1);
assert(state.curlyDepth == 1);
assert(state.squareDepth == 1);

parse('    c, d]\n  })', state:state);
assert(state.squareDepth == 0);
assert(state.curlyDepth == 0);
assert(state.roundDepth == 0);

Bracketed Expressions #

Find all the contents of a bracketed expression:

var section = parseMax('foo="(", bar="}") bing bong');
assert(section.start == 0);
assert(section.end == 16);//exclusive end of string
assert(section.src == 'foo="(", bar="}"');

section = parseMax('{foo="(", bar="}"} bing bong', start:1);
assert(section.start == 1);
assert(section.end == 17);//exclusive end of string
assert(section.src == 'foo="(", bar="}"');

The bracketed expression parsing simply parses up to but excluding the first unmatched closed bracket (), }, ]). It is clever enough to ignore brackets in comments or strings.

Custom Delimited Expressions #

Find code up to a custom delimiter:

var section = parseUntil('foo.bar("%>").baz%> bing bong', '%>');
assert(section.start == 0);
assert(section.end == 17);//exclusive end of string
assert(section.src == 'foo.bar("%>").baz');

section = parseUntil('<%foo.bar("%>").baz%> bing bong', '%>', start:2);
assert(section.start == 2);
assert(section.end == 19);//exclusive end of string
assert(section.src == 'foo.bar("%>").baz');

Delimiters are ignored if they are inside strings or comments.

API #

ParserState parse(src, {ParserState state:null, int start:0, int end:null}) #

Parse a string starting at the index start, and return the state after parsing that string.

If you want to parse one string in multiple sections you should keep passing the resulting state to the next parse operation.

The resulting object has the ParserState structure:

{
lineComment: false, //true if inside a line comment
blockComment: false, //true if inside a block comment

singleQuote: false, //true if inside a single quoted string
doubleQuote: false, //true if inside a double quoted string
escaped: false, //true if in a string and the last character was an escape character

roundDepth: 0, //number of un-closed open `(` brackets
curlyDepth: 0, //number of un-closed open `{` brackets
squareDepth: 0 //number of un-closed open `[` brackets
}

SrcPosition parseMax(src, {int start:0}) #

Parses the source until the first unmatched close bracket (any of ), }, ]). It returns a SrcPosition with the structure:

{
start: 0,//index of first character of string
end: 13,//index of first character after the end of string
src: 'source string'
}

SrcPosition parseUntil(src, delimiter, {int start:0, bool includeLineComment:false}){ #

Parses the source until the first occurence of delimiter which is not in a string or a comment. If includeLineComment is true, it will still count if the delimiter occurs in a line comment, but not in a block comment. It returns a SrcPosition with the structure:

{
start: 0,//index of first character of string
end: 13,//index of first character after the end of string
src: 'source string'
}

ParserState parseChar(character, [ParserState state]) #

Parses the single character and returns the state. See parse for the structure of the returned state object. N.B. character must be a single character not a multi character string.

ParserState defaultState() #

Get a default starting ParserState.
