Indentation tokens in moo.
const moo = require('moo')
const lexer = moo.compile({
ws: /[ \t]+/,
nl: { match: /(?:\r\n?|\n)+/, lineBreaks: true },
id: /\w+/,
})
// example
const tokens = indented(lexer, `
if this
if that
another
else
there
`)
for (const tok of tokens) console.log(tok)
// implementation
function* indented(lexer, source) {
let iter = peekable(lexer.reset(source))
let stack = []
// absorb initial blank lines and indentation
let indent = iter.nextIndent()
for (let tok; tok = iter.next(); ) {
if (tok.type === 'nl') {
const newIndent = iter.nextIndent()
if (newIndent == null) break // eof
if (newIndent === indent) {
yield {type: 'nl'}
} else if (newIndent > indent) {
stack.push(indent)
indent = newIndent
yield {type: 'indent'}
} else {
while (newIndent < indent) {
indent = stack.pop()
yield {type: 'dedent'}
}
if (newIndent !== indent) {
throw new Error('inconsistent indentation')
}
}
indent = newIndent
// ignore whitespace within lines
} else if (tok.type !== 'ws') {
yield tok
}
}
// dedent remaining blocks at eof
for (let i = stack.length; i--;) {
yield {type: 'dedent'}
}
}
function peekable(lexer) {
let here = lexer.next()
return {
next() {
const old = here
here = lexer.next()
return old
},
peek() {
return here
},
nextIndent() {

this.next()
continue

this.next()

I’m curious, why did you choose to consume newline tokens when they’re before an indent/dedent?

Notably, Python doesn’t do this.
