Package description

What is esrecurse?

The esrecurse npm package is designed for recursively walking through ECMAScript/JavaScript syntax trees. It is commonly used for static analysis, code transformation, and other tasks that involve traversing and manipulating the structure of JavaScript code.

What are esrecurse's main functionalities?

Visiting nodes in an AST

This feature allows you to visit each node in an abstract syntax tree (AST) and perform actions based on the node type. In the code sample, `Literal` nodes are logged to the console.

const esrecurse = require('esrecurse');
esrecurse.visit(ast, {
  Literal(node) {
    console.log(node.value);
  }
});

Custom visitor keys

This feature allows you to define custom visitor keys for node types that are not part of the standard ECMAScript syntax. In the code sample, a `CustomNode` type is visited, and its `customProperty` is logged.

const esrecurse = require('esrecurse');
const visitorKeys = {
  CustomNode: ['customProperty']
};
esrecurse.visit(ast, {
  CustomNode(node) {
    console.log(node.customProperty);
  }
}, visitorKeys);

Esrecurse Build Status

Esrecurse (esrecurse) is ECMAScript recursive traversing functionality.

Example Usage

The following code will output all variables declared at the root of a file.

esrecurse.visit(ast, {
    XXXStatement: function (node) {
        this.visit(node.left);
        // do something...
        this.visit(node.right);
    }
});

We can use Visitor instance.

var visitor = new esrecurse.Visitor({
    XXXStatement: function (node) {
        this.visit(node.left);
        // do something...
        this.visit(node.right);
    }
});

visitor.visit(ast);

We can inherit Visitor instance easily.

class Derived extends esrecurse.Visitor {
    constructor()
    {
        super(null);
    }

    XXXStatement(node) {
    }
}
function DerivedVisitor() {
    esrecurse.Visitor.call(/* this for constructor */  this  /* visitor object automatically becomes this. */);
}
util.inherits(DerivedVisitor, esrecurse.Visitor);
DerivedVisitor.prototype.XXXStatement = function (node) {
    this.visit(node.left);
    // do something...
    this.visit(node.right);
};

And you can invoke default visiting operation inside custom visit operation.

function DerivedVisitor() {
    esrecurse.Visitor.call(/* this for constructor */  this  /* visitor object automatically becomes this. */);
}
util.inherits(DerivedVisitor, esrecurse.Visitor);
DerivedVisitor.prototype.XXXStatement = function (node) {
    // do something...
    this.visitChildren(node);
};

The childVisitorKeys option does customize the behaviour of this.visitChildren(node). We can use user-defined node types.

// This tree contains a user-defined `TestExpression` node.
var tree = {
    type: 'TestExpression',

    // This 'argument' is the property containing the other **node**.
    argument: {
        type: 'Literal',
        value: 20
    },

    // This 'extended' is the property not containing the other **node**.
    extended: true
};
esrecurse.visit(
    ast,
    {
        Literal: function (node) {
            // do something...
        }
    },
    {
        // Extending the existing traversing rules.
        childVisitorKeys: {
            // TargetNodeName: [ 'keys', 'containing', 'the', 'other', '**node**' ]
            TestExpression: ['argument']
        }
    }
);

We can use the fallback option as well. If the fallback option is "iteration", esrecurse would visit all enumerable properties of unknown nodes. Please note circular references cause the stack overflow. AST might have circular references in additional properties for some purpose (e.g. node.parent).

esrecurse.visit(
    ast,
    {
        Literal: function (node) {
            // do something...
        }
    },
    {
        fallback: 'iteration'
    }
);

If the fallback option is a function, esrecurse calls this function to determine the enumerable properties of unknown nodes. Please note circular references cause the stack overflow. AST might have circular references in additional properties for some purpose (e.g. node.parent).

esrecurse.visit(
    ast,
    {
        Literal: function (node) {
            // do something...
        }
    },
    {
        fallback: function (node) {
            return Object.keys(node).filter(function(key) {
                return key !== 'argument'
            });
        }
    }
);
