    Shift Parser Expectations


    This module provides Shift format ASTs and metadata for the passing (i.e. syntactically valid) tests in test262-parser-tests.




    npm install shift-parser-expectations


    const file = '0a2fc93b6a63bbd3.js';
    const src = fs.readFileSync('node_modules/test262-parser-tests/pass/' + file, 'utf8');
    const expectation = fs.readFileSync('node_modules/shift-parser-expectations/expectations/' + file + '-tree.json');
    const treeWithLocations = parse('src');
    assert.deepEquals(treeWithLocations, JSON.parse(expectation));

    Every file f in test262-parser-tests/pass/ has two corresponding files in expectations/ in this module: one named f-tree.json and one named f-comments.json.

    The tree file holds a JSON encoding of Shift AST for the source text in f, with keys ordered according to the order in the Shift specification, with the first key for a node being an additional 'type' property holding the string name of the node's type and the last key being an additional 'loc' property holding location information for the node.

    The comments file holds a JSON encoding of an array of the comments in the source text in f in source order, including location information.


    The expectations are generated by running node generate-expectations, which uses shift-parser. It is expected that you will use an in-development version of that project to update expectations files (using npm link shift-parser), so this project's package.json does not include shift-parser even as a dev dependency.
