Constants and utilities about visitor keys to traverse AST.

💿 Installation

Use npm to install.

$ npm install eslint-visitor-keys


📖 Usage

To use in an ESM file:

import * as evk from "eslint-visitor-keys"

To use in a CommonJS file:

const evk = require("eslint-visitor-keys")


type: { [type: string]: string[] | undefined }

Visitor keys. This keys are frozen.

This is an object. Keys are the type of ESTree nodes. Their values are an array of property names which have child nodes.

For example:

console.log(evk.KEYS.AssignmentExpression) // → ["left", "right"]


type: (node: object) => string[]

Get the visitor keys of a given AST node.

This is similar to Object.keys(node) of ES Standard, but some keys are excluded: parent, leadingComments, trailingComments, and names which start with _.

This will be used to traverse unknown nodes.

For example:

const node = {
    type: "AssignmentExpression",
    left: { type: "Identifier", name: "foo" },
    right: { type: "Literal", value: 0 }
console.log(evk.getKeys(node)) // → ["type", "left", "right"]


type: (additionalKeys: object) => { [type: string]: string[] | undefined }

Make the union set with evk.KEYS and the given keys.

  • The order of keys is, additionalKeys is at first, then evk.KEYS is concatenated after that.
  • It removes duplicated keys as keeping the first one.

For example:

    MethodDefinition: ["decorators"]
})) // → { ..., MethodDefinition: ["decorators", "key", "value"], ... }
