Parser combinator forged deep within Ikit's forges in the Under-City from a shard of Morrslieb itself.

What is it?

Warpstone is a parser combinator library written in C# targetting .NET Standard 2.0, meaning that it can be used by any application running either .NET Framework >= 4.6.1, .NET Core >= 2.0 or Mono >= 5.4. The main focus of the library is to provide a powerful lightweight parser combinator framework for developers to create their own parsers with.

Why did you make it?

After following a course on compiler construction I was intrigued and wanted a way of parsing languages within code without requiring external tools to generate a parser for me first. During my quest I stumbled upon the concept of parser combinators and started looking for existing libraries for .NET. I soon stumbled upon Pidgin. After toying around with the library for a bit I felt dissatisfied with some of its syntax and I still felt like I didn't fully understand the concepts it was using behind the scenes. This led me to create my own parser combinator library, with syntax inspired by Pidgin.

Why the name? (Or: What are all those strange words in the description?!?!?)

Coming up with names is difficult, I wanted to get the project started and at the time I was consumed by the Warhammer Fantasy universe.




It's useful to take a look at one of the available example projects for JSON parsing and expression parsing.

To start off, one first needs to add (one of) the following imports:

using Warpstone;
using static Warpstone.Parsers.BasicParsers;
using static Warpstone.Parsers.CommonParsers;
using static Warpstone.Parsers.ExpressionParsers;
