s-expression match patterns for Mozilla Parser AST

jsstana will help you to find exactly the code snippet you are searching for. It's much more precise than using grep.

var jsstana = require("jsstana");
var esprima = require("esprima");
 
var contents = // ... 
var syntax = esprima.parse(contents);
 
jsstana.traverse(syntax, function (node) {
  var m = jsstana.match("(call alert ?argument)", node);
  if (m) {
    console.log("alert called with argument", m.argument);
  }
});

The jsgrep example utility is provided

# find assertArguments calls with 4 arguments
% jsgrep '(call ?.assertArguments ? ? ? ?)' lib
matchers/literal.js:25:   this.assertArguments("true/false/null/infinity/nan/undefined", 0, arguments, 1);
matchers/literal.js:111:   this.assertArguments("literal", 1, arguments, 1);
matchers/member.js:18:   that.assertArguments("member/property/subscript", 2, arguments, 1);
matchers/operator.js:63:   that.assertArguments(ratorName, 3, arguments, 3);
matchers/operator.js:98:   that.assertArguments("unary", 2, arguments, 1);
matchers/operator.js:128:   that.assertArguments("update/postfix/prefix", 2, arguments, 1);
matchers/simple.js:7:   this.assertArguments(rator, 1, arguments, 3);

Gives pattern a name, so matching node is also captured.

jsstana.match("(binary ?op ?lhs (?rhs (or (literal) (ident))))");

Matches when pattern doesn't match.

Matches if any pattern matches, returns first match.

Matches if all pattern matches, returns combined match.

Are the same as (not (or pattern)) and (not (and pattern)) respectively.

Matches CallExpression.

(call fun arg1 arg2) matches exact amount of arguments, for arbitrary arguments use (call fun ??params)

Matches NewExpression.

Matches Identifier.

Matches VariableDeclarator.

Matches node.

Matches Literal.

There are some additional version::

  • (string value) - string values
  • (number value) - number values
  • (bool value) - boolean values
  • (regexp value) - regular expressions
  • (true) - matches true
  • (false) - matches false
  • (null) - matches null
  • (infinity) - matches Infinity
  • (nan) - matches NaN, also (NaN) is supported
  • (undefined) - matches , also (Infinity) is supported

Matches ThisExpression.

Matches ReturnStatement.

Matches expression statement, ExpressionStatement.

Matches ThrowStatement.

Matches BreakStatement.

Matches ContinueStatement.

Matches MemberExpression.

  • (property object property) matches non computed expressions, i.e. foo.bar.
  • (subscript object property) matches computed expressions i.e. foo[bar].

Helper macro for nested variable access. (lookup foo.bar.baz) is equivalent to (property (property foo bar) baz).

The atom foo.bar.baz works as (lookup foo.bar.baz).

Matches BinaryExpression.

Also shorthand syntax is supported, (+ a b) is the same as (binary + a b).

Matches LogicalExpression. ie. && and || operators.

Matches UnaryExpression.

Also shorthand version works for ! and ~: (~ ?foo) is the same as (unary ~ ?foo).

Matches UpdateExpression.

You might want to use postfix and prefix though.

Matches AssignmentExpression.

Matches ConditionalExpression.

Matches FunctionExpression.

Matches ObjectExpression.

Match node against pattern. If pattern matches returns an object with match captures. Otherwise returns .

This function is autocurried ie. when one argument is passed, returns function node -> matchresult.

This function is also memoized on the pattern, ie each pattern is compiled only once.

Create matcher. With one argument, matcher(pattern) === match(pattern). With additional arguments, you can add $0, $1... additional anonymous matchers.

var matcher = jsstana.createMatcher("(expr (= a $0))", function (node) {
  return node.type === "ObjectExpression" && node.properties.length === 0 ? {} : ;
});

Create new jsstana context. You can add new operations to this one.

var ctx = new jsstana();
ctx.addMatchers("empty-object", function () {
  this.assertArguments("empty-object", 0, arguments);
  return function (node) {
    return node.type === "ObjectExpression" && node.properties.length === 0 ? {} : ;
  };
});
ctx.match("(empty-object", node);

You may compile submatchers with this.matcher(sexpr) and combine their results with this.combineMatches. this.assertArguments checks argument (rator) count, to help validate pattern grammar.

In lieu of a formal styleguide, take care to maintain the existing coding style.

  • Add unit tests for any new or changed functionality.
  • Lint and test your code using Grunt.
  • Use istanbul cover grunt simplemocha to run tests with coverage with istanbul.
