Package description

What is esutils?

The esutils npm package is a utility library for ECMAScript language tools. It provides various utility functions to help with the manipulation and validation of ECMAScript (JavaScript) code.

What are esutils's main functionalities?

AST (Abstract Syntax Tree) Validation

This feature allows you to validate if a string is a valid ECMAScript identifier, keyword, or reserved word.

const esutils = require('esutils');
let isValidIdentifier = esutils.keyword.isIdentifierName('myIdentifier'); // true

Code Generation

This feature helps in determining if a string is a reserved word in ECMAScript for a given version.

const esutils = require('esutils');
let isReservedWord = esutils.keyword.isReservedWord('super', 6); // true

Literal Analysis

This feature provides functions to analyze literals in the AST, such as checking if a node is a string literal.

const esutils = require('esutils');
let isStringLiteral = esutils.ast.isStringLiteral({ type: 'Literal', value: 'Hello' }); // true

API

ast

ast.isExpression(node)

Returns true if node is an Expression as defined in ECMA262 edition 5.1 section 11.

ast.isStatement(node)

Returns true if node is a Statement as defined in ECMA262 edition 5.1 section 12.

ast.isIterationStatement(node)

Returns true if node is an IterationStatement as defined in ECMA262 edition 5.1 section 12.6.

ast.isSourceElement(node)

Returns true if node is a SourceElement as defined in ECMA262 edition 5.1 section 14.

ast.trailingStatement(node)

Returns Statement? if node has trailing Statement.

if (cond)
    consequent;

When taking this IfStatement, returns consequent; statement.

ast.isProblematicIfStatement(node)

Returns true if node is a problematic IfStatement. If node is a problematic IfStatement, node cannot be represented as an one on one JavaScript code.

{
    type: 'IfStatement',
    consequent: {
        type: 'WithStatement',
        body: {
            type: 'IfStatement',
            consequent: {type: 'EmptyStatement'}
        }
    },
    alternate: {type: 'EmptyStatement'}
}

The above node cannot be represented as a JavaScript code, since the top level else alternate belongs to an inner IfStatement.
