    sourcemap-codec

    Encode/decode the mappings property of a sourcemap.

    Why?

    Sourcemaps are difficult to generate and manipulate, because the mappings property – the part that actually links the generated code back to the original source – is encoded using an obscure method called Variable-length quantity. On top of that, each segment in the mapping contains offsets rather than absolute indices, which means that you can't look at a segment in isolation – you have to understand the whole sourcemap.

    This package makes the process slightly easier.

    Installation

    npm install sourcemap-codec

    Usage

    import { encode, decode } from 'sourcemap-codec';
     
    var decoded = decode( ';EAEEA,EAAE,EAAC,CAAE;ECQY,UACC' );
     
    assert.deepEqual( decoded, [
        // the first line (of the generated code) has no mappings,
        // as shown by the starting semi-colon (which separates lines)
        [],
     
        // the second line contains four (comma-separated) segments
        [
            // segments are encoded as you'd expect:
            // [ generatedCodeColumn, sourceIndex, sourceCodeLine, sourceCodeColumn, nameIndex ]
     
            // i.e. the first segment begins at column 2, and maps back to the second column
            // of the second line (both zero-based) of the 0th source, and uses the 0th
            // name in the `map.names` array
            [ 2, 0, 2, 2, 0 ],
     
            // the remaining segments are 4-length rather than 5-length,
            // because they don't map a name
            [ 4, 0, 2, 4 ],
            [ 6, 0, 2, 5 ],
            [ 7, 0, 2, 7 ]
        ],
     
        // the final line contains two segments
        [
            [ 2, 1, 10, 19 ],
            [ 12, 1, 11, 20 ]
        ]
    ]);
     
    var encoded = encode( decoded );
    assert.equal( encoded, ';EAEEA,EAAE,EAAC,CAAE;ECQY,UACC' );
