Usage

const astUtils = require('eslint-ast-utils');

API

astUtils.isStaticRequire(node)

Checks whether node is a call to CommonJS's require function.
Returns true if and only if:
  • node is a CallExpression
  • node's callee is an Identifier named require
  • node has exactly 1 Literal argument whose value is a string

Example:
require('lodash');
// => true
require(foo);
// => false
foo('lodash');
// => false

Usage example:
function create(context) {
	return {
		CallExpression(node) {
			if (astUtils.isStaticRequire(node)) {
				context.report({
					node: node,
					message: 'Use import syntax rather than `require`'
				});
			}
		}
	};
}

astUtils.getRequireSource(node)

Gets the source of a require() call. If node is not a require call (in the definition of isStaticRequire), it will return undefined.
Example:
require('lodash');
// => 'lodash'
require('./foo');
// => './foo'

Usage example:
function create(context) {
	return {
		CallExpression(node) {
			if (astUtils.isStaticRequire(node) && astUtils.getRequireSource(node) === 'underscore') {
				context.report({
					node: node,
					message: 'Use `lodash` instead of `underscore`'
				});
			}
		}
	};
}

astUtils.containsIdentifier(name, node)

Checks if there is a reference to a variable named name inside of node.
Returns true if and only if:
  • There is an Identifier named name inside of node
  • That Identifier is a variable (i.e. not a static property name for instance)
  • That Identifier does not reference a different variable named name introduced in a sub-scope of node.

Example:
foo(a);
// containsIdentifier('a', node) // => true
// containsIdentifier('b', node) // => true

function foo(fn) {
	return function(a) {
		return fn(a);
	};
}
// containsIdentifier('a', node) // => false

Usage example:
function create(context) {
	return {
		FunctionDeclaration(node) {
			node.params.forEach(param => {
				if (param.type === 'Identifier' && !astUtils.containsIdentifier(param.name, node.body)) {
					context.report({
						node: node,
						message: `${name} is never used`
					});
				}
			});
		}
	};
}

astUtils.someContainIdentifier(name, nodes)

Checks if there is a reference to a variable named name inside any node of the nodes array. Will return false if nodes is not an array. This is a shorthand version of containsIdentifier that works for arrays. The following are equivalent:
[node1, node2, node3].some(node => astUtils.containsIdentifier('a', node));
// equivalent to
astUtils.someContainIdentifier('a', [node1, node2, node3]);

astUtils.getPropertyName(node)

Get the name of a MemberExpression's property. Returns:
  • a string if the property is accessed through dot notation.
  • a string if the property is accessed through brackets and is a string.
  • a number if the property is accessed through brackets and is a number.
  • undefined if node is not a MemberExpression
  • undefined if the property name is a hard to compute expression.

Example:
foo.bar
// => 'bar'
foo['bar']
// => 'bar'
foo[bar]
// => undefined
foo[0]
// => 0 # Number
foo[null]
// => null
foo[undefined]
// => undefined

Usage example:
function create(context) {
	return {
		MemberExpression(node) {
			if (astUtils.getPropertyName(node).startsWith('_')) {
				context.report({
					node: node,
					message: 'Don\'t access "private" fields'
				});
			}
		}
	};
}

astUtils.computeStaticExpression(node)

Get the value of an expression that can be statically computed, i.e. without variables references or expressions too complex.
Returns:
  • undefined if the value could not be statically computed.
  • An object with a value property containing the computed value.

Example:
foo
// => undefined
42
// => {value: 42}
'foo'
// => {value: 'foo'}

// => {value: undefined}
null
// => {value: null}
1 + 2 - 4 + (-1)
// => {value: -2}
true ? 1 : 2
// => {value: 1}
`foo ${'bar'}`
// => {value: 'foo bar'}

Usage example:
function create(context) {
	return {
		TemplateLiteral(node) {
			const expression = astUtils.computeStaticExpression(node);
			if (expression) {
				context.report({
					node: node,
					message: `You can replace this template literal by the regular string '${expression.value}'.`
				});
			}
		}
	};
}

astUtils.isPromise(node)

Checks whether node is a Promise.
Returns true if and only if node is one of the following:
  • a call of an expression's then or catch properties
  • a call to a property of Promise (except cancel, promisify, promisifyAll and is)
  • a call to new Promise

If node uses unknown properties of a value that would be considered a Promise, node itself would not be considered as a Promise.
Example:
foo.then(fn);
// => true
foo.catch(fn);
// => true
foo.then(fn).catch(fn);
// => true
foo.then(fn).isFulfilled(fn); // isFulfilled(fn) may not return a Promise
// => false

Promise.resolve(value);
// => true
Promise.reject(value);
// => true
Promise.race(promises);
// => true
Promise.all(promises);
// => true
Promise.map(promises, fn); // Bluebird method
// => true

new Promise(fn);
// => true
new Promise.resolve(value);
// => false

Usage example:
function create(context) {
	function reportIfPromise(node) {
		if (astUtils.isPromise(node)) {
			context.report({
				node: node,
				message: 'Prefer using async/await'
			});
		}
	}

	return {
		CallExpression: reportIfPromise,
		NewExpression: reportIfPromise
	};
}

astUtils.isFunctionExpression(node)

Checks whether node is a function expression or an arrow function expression (not a function declaration).
If node uses unknown properties of a value that would be considered a Promise, node itself would not be considered as a Promise.
Example:
(function foo() {})
// => true
() => {}
// => true
function foo() {} // function declaration
// => false

Usage example:
function create(context) {
	return {
		CallExpression(node) {
			if (node.callee.type === 'Identifier'
				&& node.callee.name === 'test'
				&& !astUtils.isFunctionExpression(node.arguments[0])
				&& !astUtils.isFunctionExpression(node.arguments[1])
			) {
				context.report({
					node: node,
					message: 'You need to pass a function to test()'
				});
			}
		}
	};
}
