Static analysis tool for python
Static analysis tool for python programs to see depending lines of code.
The Python program programslice in itself is rather useless for the end user. Use it with the Vim editor plugin. See Installation for more information.
Why Using Programslice
The main benefits of the program are:
- the possibility to aid tracing the control flow of the program
- find variables that are unnecessary to the program state
Requirements: Python 2.7
Install programslice first in your favourite virtualenv:
$ pip install https://github.com/romanofski/programslice/archive/master.zip
Install the Vim plugin by following the instructions on it’s github page.
Once the plugin is installed, either make sure that the programslice command is in your $PATH variable or you adjust the g:programslice_cmd variable in your ~/.vimrc to point it to the executable.
Forms of Contribution
If you find this program useful, here is a list of how you can contribute:
- buy me a book off my wish list
- file issues against programslice or the vim plugin
- help to improve the code
The project is hosted on github:
Documentation is available on:
- Bugfix release (see issue #25, Kudos to Adam Coddington)
- command: Added --version to see command line tool version.
- New datastructures to improve slicing quality: Result can yield line numbers, objects, sliced source code
- vim: Slicing result now highlights variables instead of just lines
- vim: moved VimL code into separate repository: https://github.com/romanofski/programslice.vim
- added output formatter to either output filtered lines of code or just line numbers
- Allow to slice between functions calls (fixes #5)
- vim: Allow to toggle slicing markers
- initial release
