Usage (Programmatic)

Parsing

const {parse} = require('jsdoctypeparser');
 
const ast = parse('Array<MyClass>');

The ast becomes:

{
  "type": "GENERIC",
  "subject": {
    "type": "NAME",
    "name": "Array"
  },
  "objects": [
    {
      "type": "NAME",
      "name": "MyClass"
    }
  ],
  "meta": {
    "syntax": "ANGLE_BRACKET"
  }
}

See the AST specifications.

Publishing

We can stringify the AST nodes by using publish.

const {publish} = require('jsdoctypeparser');
 
const ast = {
  type: 'GENERIC',
  subject: {
    type: 'NAME',
    name: 'Array'
  },
  objects: [
    {
      type: 'NAME',
      name: 'MyClass'
    }
  ]
};
 
const string = publish(ast);

The string becomes:

"Array<MyClass>"

Custom publishing

We can change the stringification strategy by using the 2nd parameter of publish(node, publisher). The publisher MUST have handlers for all node types (see lib/NodeType.js).

And we can override default behavior by using createDefaultPublisher.

const {publish, createDefaultPublisher} = require('jsdoctypeparser');
 
const ast = {
  type: 'NAME',
  name: 'MyClass',
};
 
const customPublisher = createDefaultPublisher();
customPublisher.NAME = (node, pub) =>
  `<a href="./types/${node.name}.html">${node.name}</a>`;
 
const string = publish(ast, customPublisher);

The string becomes:

<a href="./types/MyClass.html">MyClass</a>

Traversing

We can traverse the AST by using traverse. This function takes 3 parameters (a node and an onEnter handler, an onLeave handler). The handlers take a visiting node.

const {parse, traverse} = require('jsdoctypeparser');
const ast = parse('Array<{ key1: function(), key2: A.B.C }>');
 
function onEnter(node, parentName, parentNode) {
  console.log('enter', node.type, parentName, parentNode.type);
}
 
function onLeave(node, parentName, parentNode) {
  console.log('leave', node.type, parentName, parentNode.type);
}
 
traverse(ast, onEnter, onLeave);

The output will be:

enter GENERIC null null
enter NAME subject GENERIC
leave NAME subject GENERIC
enter RECORD objects GENERIC
enter RECORD_ENTRY entries RECORD
enter FUNCTION value RECORD_ENTRY
leave FUNCTION value RECORD_ENTRY
leave RECORD_ENTRY entries RECORD
enter RECORD_ENTRY entries RECORD
enter MEMBER value RECORD_ENTRY
enter MEMBER owner MEMBER
enter NAME owner MEMBER
leave NAME owner MEMBER
leave MEMBER owner MEMBER
leave MEMBER value RECORD_ENTRY
leave RECORD_ENTRY entries RECORD
leave RECORD objects GENERIC
leave GENERIC null null

Usage (CLI)

To parse a type into a JSON structure, you may pass a string argument containing the structure to parse (with the JSON results equivalent to the parsing example above):

jsdoctypeparser 'Array<MyClass>'

Note: There is no need to prefix the path to the jsdoctypeparser binary, e.g., with ./node_modules/.bin/ when you are running within one of the package.json scripts or if you have installed the package globally.
