Usage

Simply require jsub and test your scripts against your own JavaScript subset syntax definition. Scripts must be provided as AST with tools like Esprima or the Reflect.parse API:

var jsub = require('jsub');
var esprima = require('esprima');
 
var syntax = {
  context: {
    categories: {
      fruits: [],
      vegetables: [],
    },
  },
  conditions: [{
    type: 'Program',
  }, {
    type: 'ExpressionStatement',
  }, {
    type: 'BinaryExpression',
    operator: ['*', '-'],
  }, {
    type: 'Literal',
    raw: /^[0-9]{1,5}$/,
  }, {
    type: 'CallExpression',
    // The $_ property creates a custom parser that will by-pass the actual 
    // jsub embedded child expression checker. You should use this extremely 
    // carefully and heavily test it. It must return an array of errors that 
    // prevented the rule to apply, empty if it successfully applied. 
    '$_': function(expression) {
      // Check function name 
      if(
        (!expression.callee) ||
        'Identifier' !== expression.callee.type ||
        'lengthOf' !== expression.callee.name
      ) {
        return [new Error('E_BAD_FUNCTION_NAME')];
      }
      if(
        1 !== expression.arguments.length ||
        'Literal' !== expression.arguments[0].type ||
        !/^fruits|vegetables$/.test(expression.arguments[0].value)
      ) {
        return [new Error('E_BAD_FUNCTION_ARGS')];
      }
      return [];
    },
  }, {
    type: 'CallExpression',
    // The $_ property is also usefull to check sub syntaxes 
    '$_': function(expression) {
      return jsub.bind(null, {
        type: 'Literal',
        raw: /^[0-9]{1,5}$/,
      });
    },
  }],
};
 
var checkJavaScriptSubset = jsub.bind(null, syntax);
 
var script = '2 * (lengthOf("fruits") - lengthOf("vegetables"))';
 
var javaScriptAST = esprima.parse(script);
 
checkJavaScriptSubset(javaScriptAST);
// [] 
// returns an empty array since there is no syntax violation 
 

jsub uses a white list to check every AST node of your application so it fallbacks to security, you can now run your script safely without having to sandbox it!

var script = '2 * (lengthOf("fruits") - lengthOf("vegetables"))';
 
var context = {
  vegetables: ['salad', 'potato'],
  fruits: ['cherry'],
  lengthOf: function(arrayName) {
    return context[arrayName].length;
  },
};
 
runFunction = new Function(
  'var fruits = this.fruits;\n' +
  'var vegetables = this.vegetables;\n' +
  'var lengthOf = this.lengthOf;\n' +
  'return (' + script + ');'
);
 
console.log(runFunction.call(context));
// -2 

API

Check the given ast script according to the syntax definition, returns an array containing the script syntax violations according to the definition.
