Installation

npm install -g js-cpa

CLI

Usage: js-cpa [options] <file ...>


Options:

  -V, --version              output the version number
  -f, --filelist             read filelist from STDIN stream - if/when you cross ARG_MAX. eg: ls *.js | js-cpa -f
  -m, --module               parse files with sourceType=module
  -l, --language <language>  language (js|ts|flow)
  -t, --threshold <n>        threshold (in bytes)
  -C, --no-colors            disable colors in output
  -R, --report <type>        generate reports (html|term)
  -o, --report-file <path>   path for report generation
  -h, --help                 output usage information

API

const { findDuplicates, stringify }= require('js-cpa');
const fs = require("fs");
const code = fs.readFileSync(filePath, "utf-8");
const duplicates = findDuplicates(code, {
  filename: "test"
});

process.stdout.write(stringify(duplicates)); // prints to stdout

Options
  • filename - name of the file used in the output
  • sourceType - denotes the mode the code should be parsed in. eg - script|module
  • language - denotes the language. eg - (js|ts|flow)
  • threshold - threshold in bytes

findDuplicates(code, opts)
Finds the optimal duplicate functions that are structurally similar. It tries to find the longest matching subexpression across the AST which ignores the children(inner function) if the parent(outer function) is already mached

findAllDuplicates(code, opts)
Finds all duplicate functions that are structurally similar.

stringify(duplicates, options)
Gets the output in a more presentable way
Options
  • colors - enable colors on the stdout
  • newline - prints newline after each duplicates
