cypher-parser

A cypher graph query language parser/linter addon module for NodeJS.
It relies on libcypher-parser and rapidjson under the hood.

Features

  • Promise support
  • C++ addon parses queries in a worker thread
  • Typescript support with interfaces defined for full AST
  • Outputs json AST
  • Outputs text description of AST
  • Outputs error with position and description
  • Optional ANSI color support for text and error output
  • API Documentation

Supported Systems

  • Node 6.x, 8.x, 9.x, 10.x
  • linux-x64
  • darwin-x64 (OSX >= 10.7)

Sorry Windows users, the libcypher-parser depencency cannot be built on your systems. You can still run a docker container on Windows to use it.

Installation

npm install cypher-parser

The installation process will try to download a pre-built binary module matching your Node and OS version.
If it cannot be found, you will have to first run the steps in Custom Build.

Usage

The cypher-parser module has only one exported function: parse.
It takes a query string or a ParseParameters object as input, and returns a promise as output.
On success, the promise returns a ParseResult object or a string.
On failure, a CypherParserError object is thrown. It contains a ParseResult object for more details.

export interface ParseParameters {
  query: string;      // The cypher query to parse.
  width?: number;     // Width of the text AST output. Default 0.
  dumpAst?: boolean;  // If true, the ParseResult will contain a text description of the AST tree. Default false.
  rawJson?: boolean;  // If true, the result will be a json string instead of a ParseResult object. Default false.
  colorize?: boolean; // If true, the text AST output and error descriptions will be ANSI colored. Nice for console output.
}
export interface ParseResult {
  ast: string;                        // A text description of the AST tree.
  errors: ParseError[];               // Array of parse error encountered.
  directives: parseResultDirective[]; // Parsed cypher directives.
  roots: ast.AstNode[];               // The AST tree of the parsed query. Can be walked by programs. See API doc for details.
  nnodes: number;                     // Number of nodes parsed.
}
  • Typscript
import * as cypher from "cypher-parser";
 
async function testCypher() {
  const query = "MATCH (node1:Label1)-->(node2:Label2)\n" +
    "WHERE node1.propertyA = {value}\n" +
    "RETURN node2.propertyA, node2.propertyB";
 
  try {
    const result = await cypher.parse({
      query: query,
      dumpAst: true,
      colorize: true
    });
    console.log(result.ast);
  } catch (e) {
    const result: cypher.CypherParserError = e;
    for (const error of result.parseResult.errors) {
      console.log(error.position.line + ":" + error.position.column + "" + error.message);
      console.log(error.context);
      console.log(" ".repeat(error.contextOffset) + "^");
      console.log(result.ast);
    }
  }
}
  • Javascript
var cypher = require('cypher-parser');
 
async function testCypher() {
  var query = "MATCH (node1:Label1)-->(node2:Label2)\n" +
    "WHERE node1.propertyA = {value}\n" +
    "RETURN node2.propertyA, node2.propertyB";
 
  try {
    var result = await cypher.parse({
      query: query,
      dumpAst: true,
      colorize: true
    });
    console.log(result.ast);
  } catch (e) {
    for (var i = 0; i < e.parseResult.errors.length; i++) {
      var error = e.errors[i];
      console.log(error.position.line + ":" + error.position.column + ": " + error.message);
      console.log(error.context);
      console.log(" ".repeat(error.contextOffset) + "^");
      console.log(e.ast);
    }
  }
}

Custom Build

In case a binary distribution is not available for your system, you must install build tools and compile the libcypher-parser dependency like this:

  • make, C++ and Pyton
sudo apk add make gcc g++ python
  • libcypher-parser
wget https://github.com/cleishm/libcypher-parser/releases/download/v0.6.0/libcypher-parser-0.6.0.tar.gz \
&& tar zxvpf libcypher-parser-0.6.0.tar.gz \
&& rm libcypher-parser-0.6.0.tar.gz \
&& cd libcypher-parser-0.6.0 \
&& ./configure --prefix=/usr/local CFLAGS='-fPIC' \
&& make clean check \
&& make install \
&& cd .. \
&& rm -rf libcypher-parser-0.6.0

install
