About stdlib...

We believe in a future in which the web is a preferred environment for numerical computation. To help realize this future, we've built stdlib. stdlib is a standard library, with an emphasis on numerical and scientific computation, written in JavaScript (and C) for execution in browsers and in Node.js.

The library is fully decomposable, being architected in such a way that you can swap out and mix and match APIs and functionality to cater to your exact preferences and use cases.

When you use stdlib, you can be absolutely certain that you are using the most thorough, rigorous, well-written, studied, documented, tested, measured, and high-quality code out there.

To join us in bringing numerical computing to the web, get started by checking us out on GitHub, and please consider financially supporting stdlib. We greatly appreciate your continued support!

Manifest

NPM version Build Status Coverage Status

Load a manifest for compiling source files.

Installation

npm install @stdlib/utils-library-manifest

Usage

var manifest = require( '@stdlib/utils-library-manifest' );

manifest( filepath, conditions[, options] )

Loads a manifest for compiling source files.

var conditions = {
    'os': 'linux'
};

var conf = manifest( './examples/manifest.json', conditions );
// returns <Object>

The function accepts the following options:

  • basedir: base directory from which to search for dependencies. Default: current working directory.
  • paths: path convention. Must be either 'win32', 'mixed', or 'posix'. Default: based on host platform.

The default search directory is the current working directory of the calling process. To specify an alternative search directory, set the basedir option.

var conditions = {
    'os': 'linux'
};

var opts = {
    'basedir': __dirname
};

var conf = manifest( './examples/manifest.json', conditions, opts );
// returns <Object>

Notes

  • A manifest is a JSON file having the following fields:

    • options: an object containing key-value pairs. Each key corresponds to a field in confs and may be used to conditionally select a configuration. Each value corresponds to the key's default value. The value for each field in a provided conditions object which has a corresponding field in options overrides the default value.

      Option keys are akin to primary keys in relational databases, in the sense that they should be used to uniquely identify a particular configuration. While individual key values may be shared across configurations, each configuration should have a unique combination of key values. Furthermore, default option values considered as a unique set should identify one and only one default configuration.

    • fields: an object array where each object has the following fields:

      • field: key name corresponding to a field in confs.
      • resolve: boolean indicating whether to resolve field values as file paths. If true, all field values are resolved relative to the manifest file.
      • relative: boolean indicating whether to resolve field values as relative file paths. This field is only considered when a manifest is a root manifest. If true, all field values, including those originating from dependencies, are resolved as relative file paths relative the root manifest.
    • confs: an object array where each object corresponds to a manifest configuration. Each object has the following fields:

      • src: array of source files.
      • include: array of include directories.
      • libraries: array of linked library dependencies.
      • libpath: array of linked library paths.
      • dependencies: array of package dependencies containing source files.

    An example manifest:

    {
      "options": {
        "os": "linux"
      },
      "fields": [
        {
          "field": "src",
          "resolve": true,
          "relative": true
        },
        {
          "field": "include",
          "resolve": true,
          "relative": false
        },
        {
          "field": "libraries",
          "resolve": false,
          "relative": false
        },
        {
          "field": "libpath",
          "resolve": true,
          "relative": false
        }
      ],
      "confs": [
        {
          "os": "linux",
          "src": [
            "./src/foo_linux.f",
            "./src/foo_linux.c"
          ],
          "include": [
            "./include"
          ],
          "libraries": [],
          "libpath": [],
          "dependencies": [
            "@stdlib/blas/base/daxpy",
            "@stdlib/blas/base/dasum",
            "@stdlib/blas/base/dcopy"
          ]
        }
      ]
    }   
    
  • The function recursively walks the manifest dependency tree to resolve all source files, libraries, library paths, and include directories.

  • An input filepath may be either a relative or absolute file path. If provided a relative file path, a manifest is resolved relative to the base search directory.

  • If a conditions object contains fields which do not correspond to manifest options, those fields are ignored (i.e., the "extra" fields have no effect when filtering manifest configurations). This allows providing a conditions object containing fields which only apply to certain subsets of manifest dependencies.

  • If no fields in a conditions object have corresponding fields in a manifest's options, the function returns a manifest's default configuration.

Examples

var join = require( 'path' ).join;
var manifest = require( '@stdlib/utils-library-manifest' );

// Resolve the absolute path of the manifest JSON file:
var fpath = join( __dirname, 'examples', 'manifest.json' );

// Specify conditions for determining which configuration to load:
var conditions = {
    'os': 'mac'
};

// Specify options:
var opts = {
    'basedir': __dirname
};

// Load a manifest configuration:
var conf = manifest( fpath, conditions, opts );
console.dir( conf );
