Xpresion Live

Features

(v. 1.0.0+)

Xpresion is not an expression parser, it does not parse expressions. It is a parser engine. It builds parsers, which parse (custom) expressions. Effectively it is a small rewrite system

This is accomplished by configuring the Xpresion engine to fit the needed expression syntax. Configuration is intutive, easy and flexible (see examples).

However, since Xpresion is a parser engine, adding a default configuration, it can itself be a parser as well (out-of-the-box).

NOTE: Xpresion (v.1.0.0+) uses Grammar Templates for operator output. This is more flexible than simply using String Templates as previously, since it supports blocks of optional code, default values, optional placeholders and many other things. Only make sure to escape (with \ character) all "<",">","[","]" literal characters inside the output you define for operators and functions (see default configuration example below)

Features:

  1. simple, intuitive, flexible, fast
  2. support an adequate expression syntax out of the box (i.e numbers, strings, regexes, reserved tokens, arithmetical/logical operators, ternary operators, some advanced functions, variables)
  3. highly flexible and configurable (regexes, outputs, functions, operators, aliases, runtime functions, etc..)
  4. support (user-defined) variables, (user-defined) functions
  5. define custom operators (prefix, infix, postfix, left/right association, etc..) seamlessly
  6. define polymorphic operators / operator overloading seamlessly (e.g subtraction and unary negation)
  7. define n-ary operators seamlessly (e.g ternary if-then-else, etc..)
  8. define aliases of operators/functions seamlessly
  9. define new custom expression syntaxes easily (e.g via another `configuration` or by extending `defaultConfiguration` )
  10. implementations for `Node.js` and `Browser`, `PHP`, `Python` (only one class per implementation)

Platform Support

  • `PHP` 5.3.0+
  • `Python` 2.x or 3.x
  • `Node` 0.8+
  • `Browser` all

Performance

expression parsing algorithm can be seen as a variation and generalisation of Shunting-Yard algorithm, running in linear-time ( O(n) ) in the input sequence

TODO

  • use Grammar Template for more powerful and flexible rewrite output [DONE]
  • add full support for optional arguments in `operators`/`functions` [ALMOST DONE]
  • add support for (`xml`-like) `tags` in `expressions`
  • performance/unit tests [DONE PARTIALLY]
