Functional tools for matching nodes in the clang AST

Project description

Overview

Glud is an abstraction on the libclang library that make matching fragments of the Clang AST simple and Pythonic, in the same way that libclangastmatchers does for the C++ Clang API.

Examples

On the code snippet

// input.cpp
namespace X {
    class Y {};
}
class Y {};

You could match a class named X in the namespace Y with the matcher:

from glud import *
m = cxxRecordDecl(
         hasName('Y'),
         hasAncestor(namespaceDecl(hasName('X'))))
tu = parse('input.cpp')
matches = walk(m, tu.cursor)

Prerequisites

Install a recent version of Clang and the python libclang bindings. On Ubuntu Trusty, you can install pre-built binaries from the LLVM apt repositories:

wget -O - http://llvm.org/apt/llvm-snapshot.gpg.key | sudo apt-key add -
echo "deb http://llvm.org/apt/trusty/ llvm-toolchain-trusty-3.8 main" | sudo tee -a /etc/apt/sources.list
sudo apt-get update -qq
sudo apt-get install -y python-clang-3.8 libclang1-3.8

To run glud, you’ll need to make sure that libclang.so is on your loader path.

export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/lib/llvm-3.8/lib

Installing

You can install the latest stable version from PyPI

$ pip install glud

Or, you can install the latest development version from GitHub

$ pip install git+git://github.com/AndrewWalker/glud.git
