cdmpyparser 3.0.2

Fast and comprehensive Python language parser. Written as a part of the Codimension project, this parser aims at pulling the most data from Python sources while exceeding the speed of existing parsers.

cdm-pythonparser

cdm-pythonparser project is a Python 3 (Python 2 support is limited) extension module. The module provided functions can take a file with a python code or a character buffer, parse it and provide back what is found in the code: functions, classes, global variables etc.

The module is used in the Codimension Python IDE to show in a structured way a content of an arbitrary python code and for some other features however, it could be used in other projects which need a python code retrospection.

Python 3 Installation and Building

The master branch on github contains code for Python 3 (3.5/3.6 grammar is covered).

The module can be installed using pip:

pip install cdmpyparser

You can also retrieve the full source code which in addition has some utilities. In order to do that you can follow these steps:

git clone https://github.com/SergeySatskiy/cdm-pythonparser.git
cd cdm-pythonparser
make
make check
make localinstall

Python 3 Usage

Suppose there is the following file ~/my-file.py with the following content:

#!/bin/env python
import sys

# global variable
a = 154

class C(BaseClass):
    """Class docstring"""
    @staticmethod
    def getValue(arg):
        """Method docstring"""
        return arg + 154

Then the following python session may take place:

$ python
Python 3.6.2 (default, Aug  9 2017, 11:11:12)
[GCC 4.8.5 20150623 (Red Hat 4.8.5-11)] on linux
Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.
>>> import cdmpyparser
>>> c = cdmpyparser.getBriefModuleInfoFromFile('my-file.py')
>>> print(c.niceStringify())
Import[2:8:25]: 'sys'
Global[5:1:48]: 'a'
Class[7:1:7:7:63:7:19]: 'C'
Base class: 'BaseClass'
Docstring[8]: 'Class docstring'
    Function[10:5:10:9:129:10:22]: 'getValue'
    Argument: 'arg'
    Decorator[9:6:108]: 'staticmethod
    Docstring[11]: 'Method docstring'
>>> len(c.imports)
1
>>> c.imports[0].name
'sys'
>>> c.imports[0].line
2
>>> c.imports[0].pos
8

Note: Python 3 and Python 2 modules use different names. Python 3 uses cdmpyparser. Python 2 uses cdmbriefparser.

See the ‘cdmpyparser.py’ file for the members which are supplied along with all the recognized items.

Python 2 Installation and Building

Attention: Python 2 version is not supported anymore. There will be no more Python 2 releases.

The latest Python 2 release is 2.0.1. Both pre-built modules and source code are available in the releases area on github: latest Python 2 release 2.0.1.

To build a Python 2 module from sources please follow these steps:

cd
wget https://github.com/SergeySatskiy/cdm-pythonparser/archive/v2.0.1.tar.gz
gunzip v2.0.1.tar.gz
tar -xf v2.0.1.tar
cd cdm-pythonparser-2.0.1/
make
make localinstall
make check

Python 2 Usage

Suppose there is the following file ~/my-file.py with the following content:

#!/bin/env python
import sys

# global variable
a = 154

class C(BaseClass):
    """Class docstring"""
    @staticmethod
    def getValue(arg):
        """Method docstring"""
        return arg + 154

Then the following python session may take place:

$ python

>>> import cdmbriefparser
>>> c = cdmbriefparser.getBriefModuleInfoFromFile('my-file.py')
>>> print c.niceStringify()
Import[2:8:25]: 'sys'
Global[5:1:48]: 'a'
Class[7:1:7:7:63:7:19]: 'C'
Base class: 'BaseClass'
Docstring[8]: 'Class docstring'
    Function[10:5:10:9:129:10:22]: 'getValue'
    Argument: 'arg'
    Decorator[9:6:108]: 'staticmethod

>>> len(c.imports)

>>> c.imports[0].name
'sys'
>>> c.imports[0].line
2
>>> c.imports[0].pos

Note: Python 3 and Python 2 modules use different names. Python 3 uses cdmpyparser. Python 2 uses cdmbriefparser.

See the ‘cdmbriefparser.py’ file for the members which are supplied along with all the recognized items.

Comparison to the Standard pyclbr Module

Note: the comparison results are provided for the Python 2 module. The Python 3 module yeilds pretty much the same results in terms of performance while extracts more information because the grammar was extended for Python 3.

The table below shows the comparison between the standard pyclbr module and the Codimension’s cdmbriefparser module.
