prefixnote

npm version Build Status

Annotate strings with simple, embedded prefix expressions.

Used by yoga.

Install

$ npm install --save prefixnote

Basic Usage

var prefixnote = require('prefixnote')

Given a trivial expression of {a}, testing the expression with the data { a: true } will return a match result.

prefixnote.test('{a}', { a: true }) // { expression: 'a', args: [], options: {} })

Testing the same expression with { a:false } will return null since the expression does not evaluate to true for the given data.

prefixnote.test('{a}', { a: false }) // null

It accepts any static boolean expression.

prefixnote.test('{a && b}', { a: true, b: true }) // { expression: 'a && b', args: [], options: {} })
prefixnote.test('{a && b}', { a: true, b: false }) // null
prefixnote.test('{a && b}', { a: false, b: true }) // null

If multiple expressions are embedded, it returns the first one that evaluates to true (like an or expression).

prefixnote.test('{a}{b}', { a:true }) // { expression: 'a', args: [], options: {} })
prefixnote.test('{a}{b}', { b:true }) // { expression: 'b', args: [], options: {} })

Arguments and Options

Expressions can contain arbitrary arguments (values) or options (key-value pairs).

prefixnote.test('{a:one=uno, two:dos, three:tres}', { a:true }) // { expression: 'a', args: [], options: { one: 'uno', two: 'dos', three: 'tres' } })
prefixnote.test('{a:hi}{b:bye}', { a:true }) // { expression: 'a', args: ['hi'], options: {} })
prefixnote.test('{a:hi}{b:bye}', { b:true }) // { expression: 'b', args: ['bye'], options: {} })

Other Usage

Use prefixnotes as smart file filters (used by yoga).

prefixnote.parseFiles('test/sample', {
  a: true,
  b: false
})

Parse prefixnotes and then do whatever you want with them.

 
prefixnote.parse('{a}{b}test')
 
/*
{
  original: '{a}{b}test',
  value: 'test',
  expressions: [
    {
      expression: 'a',
      args: [],
      options: {}
    },
    {
      expression: 'b',
      args: [],
      options: {}
    }
  ]
}
