magic-string - Manipulate strings like a wizard

  •        4

Suppose you have some source code. You want to make some light modifications to it - replacing a few characters here and there, wrapping it with a header and footer, etc - and ideally you'd like to generate a source map at the end of it. You've thought about using something like recast (which allows you to generate an AST from some JavaScript, manipulate it, and reprint it with a sourcemap without losing your comments and formatting), but it seems like overkill for your needs (or maybe the source code isn't JavaScript).Your requirements are, frankly, rather niche. But they're requirements that I also have, and for which I made magic-string. It's a small, fast utility for manipulating strings and generating sourcemaps.

pyxl - A Python extension for writing structured and reusable inline HTML.

At Cove, where Pyxl was developed, we found that using templates was getting in the way of quickly building new features. There were the usual issues of remembering to escape data to prevent XSS holes, avoiding invalid markup and deciphering cryptic stack traces. More importantly, our templates were getting hard to manage and understand which made iterating on our product more work than should be necessary.Existing templating systems do support things like logic and reusable modules - but they a

string.js - Extra JavaScript string methods.

string.js, or simply S is a lightweight (< 5 kb minified and gzipped) JavaScript library for the browser or for Node.js that provides extra String methods. Originally, it modified the String prototype. But I quickly learned that in JavaScript, this is considered poor practice.Personally, I prefer the cleanliness of the way code looks when it appears to be native methods. i.e. when you modify native JavaScript prototypes. However, if any app dependency required string.js, then the app's string prototype would be modified in every module. This could be troublesome. So I settled on creating a wrapper a la jQuery style. For those of you prototype hatin' fools, there is the method extendPrototype().

autolink-js - Tiny little tool to find URLs in a string of text and hyperlink them

autolink-js is a small (about half a kilobyte), simple, and tested JavaScript tool that takes a string of text, finds URLs within it, and hyperlinks them. I recently needed to find and hyperlink URLs in user-submitted text and was surprised to find that doing what seemed like such a simple task wasn't already a Solved Problem. Different regex solutions led to different unwanted side effects, and other utilities were far, far more complex and feature rich than I needed.

solidity-stringutils - Basic string utilities for Solidity

Functionality in this library is largely implemented using an abstraction called a 'slice'. A slice represents a part of a string - anything from the entire string to a single character, or even no characters at all (a 0-length slice). Since a slice only has to specify an offset and a length, copying and manipulating slices is a lot less expensive than copying and manipulating the strings they reference. To further reduce gas costs, most functions on slice that need to return a slice modify the original one instead of allocating a new one; for instance, s.split(".") will return the text up to the first '.', modifying s to only contain the remainder of the string after the '.'. In situations where you do not want to modify the original slice, you can make a copy first with .copy(), for example: s.copy().split("."). Try and avoid using this idiom in loops; since Solidity has no memory management, it will result in allocating many short-lived slices that are later discarded.
