Selector State Fragments

Converts between Web Annotation Selectors and States as Fragment Identifiers and Web Annotation Data Model Selectors and States (or SpecificResources containing those).

Install

npm install selector-state-frags

…or equivalent.

Use

Convert between fragment identifier and Selector or State object:

// for fragment identifiers of the form `selector(…)`
const { selector } = parse(fragmentIdentifier)

// for fragment identifiers of the form `state(…)`
const { state } = parse(fragmentIdentifier)

const fragmentIdentifier = stringify(selectorOrState)

A SpecificResource is simply treated as a pair of { source, selector }, or { source, state }. To convert between this object and a URI with the Selector/State as its fragment identifier:

const specificResource = uriToSpecificResource(uri)

const uri = specificResourceToUri(specificResource)

With uriToSpecificResource, if the given URI contains any other type of fragment identifier (neither selector nor state), it will be converted to its equivalent FragmentSelector:

uriToSpecificResource('https://example.com/page#section4')
// {
//     source: 'https://example.com/page',
//     selector: {
//         type: 'FragmentSelector',
//         value: 'section4',
//     }
// }

With specificResourceToUri, note that if the SpecificResource contains both a Selector and a State, only the Selector will be put in the fragment identifier.

Example

const selector = {
  "type": "TextPositionSelector",
  "start": 412,
  "end": 795
}
stringify(selector) === 'selector(type=TextPositionSelector,start=412,end=795)'
// And `parse('selector(…)')` would do the reverse conversion.

const specificResource = {
    "source": "http://example.org/ebook1",
    "selector": {
      "type": "TextPositionSelector",
      "start": 412,
      "end": 795
    }
}
specificResourceToUri(specificResource) === 'http://example.org/ebook1#selector(type=TextPositionSelector,start=412,end=795)'
// And uriToSpecificResource('http://…') would do the reverse conversion.
