    build status

    This modules uses acorn to create an AST from source code.

    example

    array.js

    Put a function wrapper around all array literals.

    var falafel = require('falafel');
     
    var src = '(' + function () {
        var xs = [ 1, 2, [ 3, 4 ] ];
        var ys = [ 5, 6 ];
        console.dir([ xs, ys ]);
    } + ')()';
     
    var output = falafel(src, function (node) {
        if (node.type === 'ArrayExpression') {
            node.update('fn(' + node.source() + ')');
        }
    });
    console.log(output);

    output:

    (function () {
        var xs = fn([ 1, 2, fn([ 3, 4 ]) ]);
        var ys = fn([ 5, 6 ]);
        console.dir(fn([ xs, ys ]));
    })()
    

    methods

    var falafel = require('falafel')

    falafel(src, opts={}, fn)

    Transform the string source src with the function fn, returning a string-like transformed output object.

    For every node in the ast, fn(node) fires. The recursive walk is a pre-traversal, so children get called before their parents.

    Performing a pre-traversal makes it easier to write nested transforms since transforming parents often requires transforming all its children first.

    The return value is string-like (it defines .toString() and .inspect()) so that you can call node.update() asynchronously after the function has returned and still capture the output.

    Instead of passing a src you can also use opts.source.

    All of the opts will be passed directly to acorn.

    custom parser

    You may pass in an instance of acorn to the opts as opts.parser to use that version instead of the version of acorn packaged with this library.

    var acorn = require('acorn-jsx');
     
    falafel(src, {parser: acorn, plugins: { jsx: true }}, function(node) {
      // this will parse jsx
    });

    nodes

    Aside from the regular esprima data, you can also call some inserted methods on nodes.

    Aside from updating the current node, you can also reach into sub-nodes to call update functions on children from parent nodes.

    node.source()

    Return the source for the given node, including any modifications made to children nodes.

    node.update(s)

    Transform the source for the present node to the string s.

    Note that in 'ForStatement' node types, there is an existing subnode called update. For those nodes all the properties are copied over onto the node.update() function.

    node.parent

    Reference to the parent element or null at the root element.
