Function Definition Extractor

Project description

Function Extractor

Python application License: MIT codecov

Tool to extract the function definitions from the source code

It can be used to extract functions from,

  • C

  • C++

  • C#

  • Java

  • Python

  • TypeScript

  • JavaScript

Advantage of using such function extractions are,

  • Resolving technical debt

  • Identify function similarity

  • Identify pattern check (Supresswarnings, Assert, etc...)

Dependencies

  • python 3.8 : 64 bit

  • python packages (xlrd, xlsxwriter, pandas)

  • third party packages [Ctags, grep]

Installation

Requirements are added in requirement.txt file

Python 3.8

python: install python for the respective OS at "https://www.python.org/downloads/" Make sure to update the path variable to point to the python installation folder.

pip: (only if pip is not present by default) get get-pip.py from below link to your folder "https://bootstrap.pypa.io/get-pip.py" Open a command prompt and navigate to the folder containing get-pip.py.

Run the following command:

functiondefextractor:

pip install functiondefextractor

Other tools

Ctags: "https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ctags"

  • Windows:

1.Download Ctags from "http://ctags.sourceforge.net/"

2.Select the right package(based on OS & architecture) and

extract the zip file to a folder

3.Update the system 'path' environment variable with the path to ctags executable

  • Linux:

apt-get install ctags

  • OS X:

brew install ctags

grep

1.Download grep "binaries and Dependencies"

from http://gnuwin32.sourceforge.net/packages/grep.htm

2.Extract the content to a folder

3.Copy and paste contents from \bin folder of Dependencies

to \bin folder of Binaries

4.Update the system 'path' environment variable with the path to "grep" executable

pip install functiondefextractor

Usage & Configuration

Code

  • General usage with out options.
from functiondefextractor import core_extractor
out_put = core_extractor.extractor (r"path_to_repo/code")
print(out_put)
  • To exclude specific files from repository.
from functiondefextractor import core_extractor
out_put = core_extractor.extractor (r"path_to_repo/code", exclude=r'*\test\*,*.java')
print(out_put)

Sample regex patterns: Note: Space given after comma(,) in regex pattern is also treated as part of the pattern. For example

(*.java, *.cpp) != (*.java,*.cpp)
1. '*.java' =>  to exclude all java files in a repository.

2. '*/test/*' => to exclude test folder and files in it.

3. '*/src/*/*.cpp' => to exclude all cpp files in src and it's sub directories
  • To extract functions based on annotation.
from functiondefextractor import core_extractor
out_put = core_extractor.extractor (r"path_to_repo/code", annot="@Test")
print(out_put)
  • To extract delta lines(+/-) from code based on annotation/key word. Note: If user is unaware of complete annotation use this(annot with delta) feature to extract functions else use the above feature. Suggested to use delta=0 to get only line with annotation.
from functiondefextractor import core_extractor
out_put = core_extractor.extractor(r"path_to_repo/code", annot="@SupressWarning", delta="5")
print(out_put)
  • To analyse various patterns in the code based on given condition. For example to search assert, suppress warnings patterns.
from functiondefextractor import condition_checker
out_put = core_extractor.check_condition("@SupressWarning", r"path_to_excelfile/dataframe", "(")
print(out_put[0], out_put[1])

Commandline

  • General usage with out options to extract functions from repo.
>>>python -m functiondefextractor --p "path/to/repo"
  • To extract functions from repo having specific annotation.
>>>python -m functiondefextractor --p "path/to/repo" --a "@SuppressWarnings(\"UnusedReturnValue\")"

Note: If annotation contains double quotes as part of annotation(like above example) use backslash() before double quote inside annotation.

  • To ignore files from repo using regex pattern.
>>>python -m functiondefextractor --p "path/to/repo" --i '*.java, *.cpp'
  • To analyse various patterns in the code based on given condition.
>>>python -m functiondefextractor --c "Assert" --e "path/to/excel" --s "("
  • Help option can be found at,
>>>python -m functiondefextractor --h

Sample use cases

  • To extract all functions from a repository
>>>python -m functiondefextractor --p "path/to/repo"
from functiondefextractor import core_extractor
out_put = core_extractor.extractor (r"path_to_repo/code")
print(out_put)
  • To extract all functions with "@Test" annotation excluding all ".cpp" files in the repository
>>>python -m functiondefextractor --p "path/to/repo" --a "@Test" --i '*.cpp'
from functiondefextractor import core_extractor
out_put = core_extractor.extractor(r"path_to_repo/code", annot="@Test", exclude=r'*.cpp')
print(out_put)

Note:

  1. functionstartwith argument can be used to specifically extract code from required functions whose names starts with "test_" or what ever name user is interested in.

  2. delta and annot arguments together can be used to extract required number of lines below and above the given annotation/keyword.

  • To analyze various patterns present in extracted code
>>>python -m functiondefextractor --c "Assert" --e "path/to/excel" --s "("
from functiondefextractor import condition_checker
out_put = core_extractor.check_condition("@SupressWarning", r"path_to_excelfile/dataframe", "(")
print(out_put[0], out_put[1])

Output

  • Executing functiondefextractor to extract functions from command line would generate an output excel file which contains FileName_FunctionName in Unique ID column and extracted functions in Code column

  • Using functiondefextractor to extract functions from code would return a dataframe with same content as excel file.

  • When functiondefextractor is executed from script to analyse patterns in code, a tuple with 2 data frames would be generated which contains the requested pattern statements with their count in various functions and a pivot table of the same respectively.
