    Parse

    NPM version Build Status Coverage Status Dependencies

    Attempts to parse an input string as ALCE.

    Installation

    $ npm install utils-alce-parse

    Usage

    var parse = require( 'utils-alce-parse' );

    parse( value[, options] )

    Attempts to parse an input string as ALCE.

    var out = parse( '{// Comment...\n"beep": "boop",\n/* Regex: */\n"re": /\./}' );
    // returns {'beep':'boop','re':/\./}
     
    out = parse( 'beep boop' );
    // returns <Error>

    The function signature is the same as ALCE#parse, except the meta option is always false.

    Notes

    • This function wraps ALCE#parse in a try/catch block.
    • The presence of try/catch within any function prevents JavaScript compiler optimization. By isolating the try/catch block, we minimize the extent of optimization hell.

    Examples

    var fs = require( 'fs' ),
        path = require( 'path' ),
        parse = require( 'utils-alce-parse' );
     
    // Load an ALCE file...
    var file = '/path/to/file.alce';
    file = fs.readFileSync( file, {
        'encoding': 'utf8'
    });
     
    // Attempt to parse the file...
    file = parse( file );
    console.dir( file );

    To run the example code from the top-level application directory,

    $ node ./examples/index.js

    Tests

    Unit

    Unit tests use the Mocha test framework with Chai assertions. To run the tests, execute the following command in the top-level application directory:

    $ make test

    All new feature development should have corresponding unit tests to validate correct functionality.

    Test Coverage

    This repository uses Istanbul as its code coverage tool. To generate a test coverage report, execute the following command in the top-level application directory:

    $ make test-cov

    Istanbul creates a ./reports/coverage directory. To access an HTML version of the report,

    $ make view-cov
