grappa - parboiled

anonymous
Hi !

So I just started using parboiled and I really like it. I came here just to discover that appearantly it's not being maintained anymore.
Now I've also seen that there is a movement to continue parboiled but it's now called grappa.

Is grappa going to be a drop-in replacement for parboiled i.e. could I use my current code ?
From what I can see in the readme the syntax is pretty much exactly the same but the readme isn't exactly extensive :)

Any advice ?

grappa is my project so I can reply to that ;)

Well, as the README says, grappa 1.0.x aims to be fully compatible with parboiled; what grammars you have written with parboiled will work with grappa out of the box (if they don't, that's a bug, in which case you want to open an issue).

It does have a few differences which are mentioned in the wiki as well, but the API hasn't changed; it also adds a few rules. All of this is documented.

You also get to have a GUI allowing you to analyze traces produced by a new parse runner which is not in parboiled; while originally developed for grappa 2.0.x (which is alpha at the moment), a backport backport exists which you can use with grappa 1.0.x/parboiled. Right now, the debugger is the attention of all of my work.

If you have any further questions, don't hesitate to ask!
