vinyl-ast

0.2.0 • Public • Published

vinyl-ast NPM version build status Dependency Status

Parse-once and generate-once AST tool bridge for Gulp plugins.

Inspired by gulp-sourcemaps. Just PoC now.

Usage

Just use Gulp and the plugins.

var gulp = require('gulp');
var plugin1usingVinylAst = require('gulp-plugin1-using-vinyl-ast');
var plugin2usingVinylAst = require('gulp-plugin2-using-vinyl-ast');
var plugin3 = require('gulp-plugin3');
 
gulp.task('javascript', function() {
  gulp.src('src/**/*.js')
    // parse source to AST
    .pipe(plugin1usingVinylAst())
    // AST to AST (no conversion!)
    .pipe(plugin2usingVinylAst())
    // generate souce from AST
    .pipe(plugin3())
    .pipe(gulp.dest('dist'));
});

Because plugin1 and plugin2 support vinyl-ast,
the source is parsed at the beginning of plugin1 at once and generated once internally.

Even if plugin3 doesn't know about vinyl-ast, no problem.
vinyl-ast generate sources as a file#contents property for general gulp plugins.

VS.

aster is an AST-based code builder.
To use it with Gulp, additional confugiration is needed.

vinyl-ast is primary designed for working with Gulp.
Gulp users don't have to concern about such an AST.
Only plugin developers need to do.

For Gulp plugin developer

Check file.ast property, use it and set your result ast to it.

var through = require('through2');
var vinylAst = require('vinyl-ast');
var myTransform = require('myTransform');
 
module.exports = function(options) {
  return through.obj(function(file, encoding, callback) {
    var resutl;
 
    if (file.ast) {
      // use parsed ast!
      result = myTransformFromAst(file.ast, options);
    } else {
      // convert vinyl file to vinyl-ast file
      vinylAst.apply(file);
      // do normal plugin logic
      result = myTransformFromSource(file.contents, options);
    }
 
    // set result AST to file.ast
    file.ast = result.ast
 
    this.push(file);
    callback();
  }
};
