ScopeManager

This document was written based on the implementation of eslint-scope, a fork of escope, and deprecates some members ESLint is not using.


ScopeManager interface

ScopeManager object has all variable scopes.

Fields

scopes

  • Type: Scope[]
  • Description: All scopes.

globalScope

  • Type: Scope
  • Description: The root scope.

Methods

acquire(node, inner = false)

  • Parameters:
    • node (ASTNode) … An AST node to get their scope.
    • inner (boolean) … If the node has multiple scope, this returns the outermost scope normally. If inner is true then this returns the innermost scope. Default is false.
  • Return type: Scope | null
  • Description: Get the scope of a given AST node. The gotten scope’s block property is the node. This method never returns function-expression-name scope. If the node does not have their scope, this returns null.

getDeclaredVariables(node)

  • Parameters:
    • node (ASTNode) … An AST node to get their variables.
  • Return type: Variable[]
  • Description: Get the variables that a given AST node defines. The gotten variables’ def[].node/def[].parent property is the node. If the node does not define any variable, this returns an empty array.

Deprecated members

Those members are defined but not used in ESLint.

isModule()

  • Parameters:
  • Return type: boolean
  • Description: true if this program is module.

isImpliedStrict()

  • Parameters:
  • Return type: boolean
  • Description: true if this program is strict mode implicitly. I.e., options.impliedStrict === true.

isStrictModeSupported()

  • Parameters:
  • Return type: boolean
  • Description: true if this program supports strict mode. I.e., options.ecmaVersion >= 5.

acquireAll(node)

  • Parameters:
    • node (ASTNode) … An AST node to get their scope.
  • Return type: Scope[] | null
  • Description: Get the scopes of a given AST node. The gotten scopes’ block property is the node. If the node does not have their scope, this returns null.

Scope interface

Scope object has all variables and references in the scope.

Fields

type

  • Type: string
  • Description: The type of this scope. This is one of "block", "catch", "class", "class-field-initializer", "class-static-block", "for", "function", "function-expression-name", "global", "module", "switch", "with".

isStrict

  • Type: boolean
  • Description: true if this scope is strict mode.

upper

  • Type: Scope | null
  • Description: The parent scope. If this is the global scope then this property is null.

childScopes

  • Type: Scope[]
  • Description: The array of child scopes. This does not include grandchild scopes.

variableScope

  • Type: Scope
  • Description: The nearest ancestor whose type is one of "class-field-initializer", "class-static-block", "function", "global", or "module". For the aforementioned scopes this is a self-reference.

This represents the lowest enclosing function or top-level scope. Class field initializers and class static blocks are implicit functions. Historically, this was the scope which hosts variables that are defined by var declarations, and thus the name variableScope.

block

  • Type: ASTNode
  • Description: The AST node which created this scope.

variables

  • Type: Variable[]
  • Description: The array of all variables which are defined on this scope. This does not include variables which are defined in child scopes.

set

  • Type: Map<string, Variable>
  • Description: The map from variable names to variable objects.

I hope to rename set field or replace by a method.

references

  • Type: Reference[]
  • Description: The array of all references on this scope. This does not include references in child scopes.

through

  • Type: Reference[]
  • Description: The array of references which could not be resolved in this scope.

functionExpressionScope

  • Type: boolean
  • Description: true if this scope is "function-expression-name" scope.

I hope to deprecate functionExpressionScope field as replacing by scope.type === "function-expression-name".

Deprecated members

Those members are defined but not used in ESLint.

taints

  • Type: Map<string, boolean>
  • Description: The map from variable names to tainted flag.

dynamic

  • Type: boolean
  • Description: true if this scope is dynamic. I.e., the type of this scope is "global" or "with".

directCallToEvalScope

  • Type: boolean
  • Description: true if this scope contains eval() invocations.

thisFound

  • Type: boolean
  • Description: true if this scope contains this.

resolve(node)

  • Parameters:
    • node (ASTNode) … An AST node to get their reference object. The type of the node must be "Identifier".
  • Return type: Reference | null
  • Description: Returns this.references.find(r => r.identifier === node).

isStatic()

  • Parameters:
  • Return type: boolean
  • Description: Returns !this.dynamic.

isArgumentsMaterialized()

  • Parameters:
  • Return type: boolean
  • Description: true if this is a "function" scope which has used arguments variable.

isThisMaterialized()

  • Parameters:
  • Return type: boolean
  • Description: Returns this.thisFound.

isUsedName(name)

  • Parameters:
    • name (string) … The name to check.
  • Return type: boolean
  • Description: true if a given name is used in variable names or reference names.

Variable interface

Variable object is variable’s information.

Fields

name

  • Type: string
  • Description: The name of this variable.

scope

  • Type: Scope
  • Description: The scope in which this variable is defined.

identifiers

  • Type: ASTNode[]

I hope to deprecate identifiers field as replacing by defs[].name field.
