License

Dual-licenced under Apache 2.0 or MIT licenses (see LICENSE-APACHE and LICENSE-MIT for legal terms).

Development

A number of external tools are used during development:

Parser (src/parser.rs) is built from a PEG grammar in grammar.rustpeg. It is updated manually and then committed, not generated on every build, thus no rust-peg in the list of dependencies.

For debugging purposes, it is handy to have a version rust-peg built with tracing enabled.

A makefile is used to script the development process:

  • make update parser, build the library and run the tests;
  • make trace rebuilds parser using rust-peg-trace, which is expected to be a version of rust-peg command with trace feature enabled
  • make check can be used as pre-commit git hook to make sure parser is up to date
