Class for creating AST nodes.

Please consider following this project's author, Jon Schlinkert, and consider starring the project to show your :heart: and support.

Install

Install with npm:

$ npm install --save snapdragon-node

Usage

const Node = require('snapdragon-node'); // either pass on object with "type" and (optional) "val" const node1 = new Node({type: 'star', val: '*'}); // or pass "val" (first) and "type" (second) as string const node2 = new Node('*', 'star'); // both result in => Node { type: 'star', val: '*' }

Snapdragon usage

With snapdragon v0.9.0 and higher, it's recommended that you use this.node() to create a new Node inside parser handlers (instead of doing new Node()).

Snapdragon ^1.0.0

Example usage inside a snapdragon parser handler function.

const Node = require('snapdragon-node'); const Token = require('snapdragon-token'); // create a new AST node const node = new Node({ type: 'star', value: '*' }); // convert a Lexer Token into an AST Node const token = new Token({ type: 'star', value: '*' }); const node = new Node(token);

Node objects

AST Nodes are represented as Node objects that implement the following interface:

interface Node { type: string; value: string | undefined nodes: array | undefined }
  • type {string} - A string representing the node variant type. This property is often used for classifying the purpose or nature of the node, so that parsers or compilers can determine what to do with it.
  • value {string|undefined} (optional) - In general, value should only be a string when node.nodes is undefined. This is not reinforced, but is considered good practice. Use a different property name to store arbitrary strings on the node when node.nodes is an array.
  • nodes {array|undefined} (optional) - array of child nodes

A number of useful methods and non-enumerable properties are also exposed for adding, finding and removing child nodes, etc.

Continue reading the API documentation for more details.

Node API

Node

Create a new AST Node with the given type and value, or an object to initialize with.

Params

  • type {object|string}: Either an object to initialize with, or a string to be used as the node.type.
  • value {string|boolean}: If the first argument is a string, the second argument may be a string value to set on node.value.
  • clone {boolean}: When an object is passed as the first argument, pass true as the last argument to deep clone values before assigning them to the new node.
  • returns {Object}: node instance

Example

console.log(new Node({ type: 'star', value: '*' })); console.log(new Node('star', '*')); // both result in => Node { type: 'star', value: '*' }

.clone

Return a clone of the node. Values that are arrays or plain objects are deeply cloned.

  • returns {Object}: returns a clone of the node

Example

const node = new Node({type: 'star', value: '*'}); consle.log(node.clone() !== node); //=> true

.stringify

Return a string created from node.value and/or recursively visiting over node.nodes.

  • returns {String}

Example

const node = new Node({type: 'star', value: '*'}); consle.log(node.stringify()); //=> '*'

.push

Push a child node onto the node.nodes array.

Params

  • node {Object}
  • returns {Number}: Returns the length of node.nodes, like Array.push

Example

const foo = new Node({type: 'foo'}); const bar = new Node({type: 'bar'}); foo.push(bar);

.unshift

Unshift a child node onto node.nodes, and set node as the parent on child.parent.

Params

  • node {Object}
  • returns {Number}: Returns the length of node.nodes

Example

const foo = new Node({type: 'foo'}); const bar = new Node({type: 'bar'}); foo.unshift(bar);

.pop

Pop a node from node.nodes.

  • returns {Number}: Returns the popped node

Example

const node = new Node({type: 'foo'}); node.push(new Node({type: 'a'})); node.push(new Node({type: 'b'})); node.push(new Node({type: 'c'})); node.push(new Node({type: 'd'})); console.log(node.nodes.length); //=> 4 node.pop(); console.log(node.nodes.length); //=> 3

.shift

Shift a node from node.nodes.

  • returns {Object}: Returns the shifted node

Example

const node = new Node({type: 'foo'}); node.push(new Node({type: 'a'})); node.push(new Node({type: 'b'})); node.push(new Node({type: 'c'})); node.push(new Node({type: 'd'})); console.log(node.nodes.length); //=> 4 node.shift(); console.log(node.nodes.length); //=> 3

.remove

Remove node from node.nodes.

Params

  • node {Object}
  • returns {Object}: Returns the removed node.

Example

node.remove(childNode);

.find

Get the first child node from node.nodes that matches the given type. If type is a number, the child node at that index is returned.

Params

  • type {String}
  • returns {Object}: Returns a child node or undefined.

Example

const child = node.find(1); //<= index of the node to get const child = node.find('foo'); //<= node.type of a child node const child = node.find(/^(foo|bar)$/); //<= regex to match node.type const child = node.find(['foo', 'bar']); //<= array of node.type(s)

.has

Returns true if node.nodes array contains the given node.

Params

  • type {String}
  • returns {Boolean}

Example

const foo = new Node({type: 'foo'}); const bar = new Node({type: 'bar'}); cosole.log(foo.has(bar)); // false foo.push(bar); cosole.log(foo.has(bar)); // true

.hasType

Return true if the node.nodes has the given type.

Params

  • type {String}
  • returns {Boolean}

Example

const foo = new Node({type: 'foo'}); const bar = new Node({type: 'bar'}); foo.push(bar); cosole.log(foo.hasType('qux')); // false cosole.log(foo.hasType(/^(qux|bar)$/)); // true cosole.log(foo.hasType(['qux', 'bar'])); // true

.isType

Return true if the node is the given type.

Params

  • type {String}
  • returns {Boolean}

Example

const node = new Node({type: 'bar'}); cosole.log(node.isType('foo')); // false cosole.log(node.isType(/^(foo|bar)$/)); // true cosole.log(node.isType(['foo', 'bar'])); // true

.isEmpty

Returns true if node.value is an empty string, or node.nodes does not contain any non-empty text nodes.

Params

  • fn {Function}: (optional) Filter function that is called on node and/or child nodes. isEmpty will return false immediately when the filter function returns false on any nodes.
  • returns {Boolean}

Example

const node = new Node({type: 'text'}); node.isEmpty(); //=> true node.value = 'foo'; node.isEmpty(); //=> false

.isInside

Returns true if the node has an ancestor node of the given type

Params

  • type {String}
  • returns {Boolean}

Example

const box = new Node({type: 'box'}); const marble = new Node({type: 'marble'}); box.push(marble); marble.isInside('box'); //=> true

.siblings

Get the siblings array, or null if it doesn't exist.

  • returns {Array}

Example

const foo = new Node({type: 'foo'}); const bar = new Node({type: 'bar'}); const baz = new Node({type: 'baz'}); foo.push(bar); foo.push(baz); console.log(bar.siblings.length) // 2 console.log(baz.siblings.length) // 2

.index

Calculate the node's current index on node.parent.nodes, or -1 if the node does not have a parent, or is not on node.parent.nodes.

  • returns {Number}

Example

const foo = new Node({type: 'foo'}); const bar = new Node({type: 'bar'}); const baz = new Node({type: 'baz'}); const qux = new Node({type: 'qux'}); foo.push(bar); foo.push(baz); foo.unshift(qux); console.log(bar.index) // 1 console.log(baz.index) // 2 console.log(qux.index) // 0

.prev

Get the previous node from the siblings array or null.

  • returns {Object}

Example

const foo = new Node({type: 'foo'}); const bar = new Node({type: 'bar'}); const baz = new Node({type: 'baz'}); foo.push(bar); foo.push(baz); console.log(baz.prev.type) // 'bar'

.next

Get the next element from the siblings array, or null if a next node does not exist.

  • returns {Object}

Example

const parent = new Node({type: 'root'}); const foo = new Node({type: 'foo'}); const bar = new Node({type: 'bar'}); const baz = new Node({type: 'baz'}); parent.push(foo); parent.push(bar); parent.push(baz); console.log(foo.next.type) // 'bar' console.log(bar.next.type) // 'baz'

.first

Get the first child node from node.nodes.

  • returns {Object}: The first node, or undefiend

Example

.depth

Get the node.depth. The root node has a depth of 0. Add 1 to child nodes for each level of nesting.

  • returns {Object}: The last node, or undefiend

Example

const foo = new Node({type: 'foo'}); foo.push(bar); console.log(foo.depth) // 1 console.log(bar.depth) // 2

Node#isNode

Static method that returns true if the given value is a node.

Params

  • node {Object}
  • returns {Boolean}

Example

const Node = require('snapdragon-node'); const node = new Node({type: 'foo'}); console.log(Node.isNode(node)); //=> true console.log(Node.isNode({})); //=> false

Non-enumerable properties

  • node.isNode {boolean} - this value is set to true when a node is created. This can be useful in situationas as a fast alternative to using instanceof Node if you need to determine if a value is a node object.
  • node.size {number} - the number of child nodes that have been pushed or unshifted onto node.nodes using the node's API. This is useful for determining if nodes were added to node.nodes without using node.push() or node.unshift() (for example: if (node.nodes && node.size !== node.nodes.length))
  • node.parent {object} (instance of Node)
