the "no memory for you" "parser" generator

PyPI - License PyPI PyPI - Python Version Jenkins Jenkins tests Jenkins Coverage Read the Docs

nmfu attempts to turn a parser specified as a procedural matching thing into a state machine, parsing protocols with minimal memory and in arbitrarily sized chunks.

There are a number of examples present in the examples/ folder, as well as documentation and a tutorial available on readthedocs.


There is a vim plugin available which adds syntax highlighting for .nmfu files at mincrmatt12/nmfu-vim, as well as a pygments lexer plugin at mincrmatt12/nmfu-pygments.
