class SyntaxSuggest::AroundBlockScan

This class is useful for exploring contents before and after a block

It searches above and below the passed in block to match for whatever criteria you give it:


def dog         # 1
  puts "bark"   # 2
  puts "bark"   # 3
end             # 4

scan =
  code_lines: code_lines
  block: code_lines[1])

scan.scan_while { true }

puts scan.before_index # => 0
puts scan.after_index  # => 3

Public Instance Methods

code_block() click to toggle source

Return the currently matched lines as a ‘CodeBlock`

When a ‘CodeBlock` is created it will gather metadata about itself, so this is not a free conversion. Avoid allocating more CodeBlock’s than needed

# File lib/syntax_suggest/around_block_scan.rb, line 217
def code_block lines)
force_add_empty() click to toggle source

When using this flag, ‘scan_while` will bypass the block it’s given and always add a line that responds truthy to ‘CodeLine#empty?`

Empty lines contain no code, only whitespace such as leading spaces a newline.

# File lib/syntax_suggest/around_block_scan.rb, line 60
def force_add_empty
  @force_add_empty = true
force_add_hidden() click to toggle source

When using this flag, ‘scan_while` will bypass the block it’s given and always add a line that responds truthy to ‘CodeLine#hidden?`

Lines are hidden when they’ve been evaluated by the parser as part of a block and found to contain valid code.

# File lib/syntax_suggest/around_block_scan.rb, line 49

  @force_add_hidden = true

lines() click to toggle source

Returns the lines matched by the current scan as an array of CodeLines

# File lib/syntax_suggest/around_block_scan.rb, line 223
def lines
lookahead_balance_one_line() click to toggle source

Scanning is intentionally conservative because we have no way of rolling back an agressive block (at this time)

If a block was stopped for some trivial reason, (like an empty line) but the next line would have caused it to be balanced then we can check that condition and grab just one more line either up or down.

For example, below if we’re scanning up, line 2 might cause the scanning to stop. This is because empty lines might denote logical breaks where the user intended to chunk code which is a good place to stop and check validity. Unfortunately it also means we might have a “dangling” keyword or end.

1 def bark
3 end

If lines 2 and 3 are in the block, then when this method is run it would see it is unbalanced, but that acquiring line 1 would make it balanced, so that’s what it does.

# File lib/syntax_suggest/around_block_scan.rb, line 141
def lookahead_balance_one_line
  kw_count = 0
  end_count = 0
  lines.each do |line|
    kw_count += 1 if line.is_kw?
    end_count += 1 if line.is_end?

  return self if kw_count == end_count # nothing to balance

  @scanner.commit_if_changed # Rollback point if we don't find anything to optimize

  # Try to eat up empty lines
    up: ->(line, _, _) { line.hidden? || line.empty? },
    down: ->(line, _, _) { line.hidden? || line.empty? }

  # More ends than keywords, check if we can balance expanding up
  next_up = @scanner.next_up
  next_down = @scanner.next_down
  case end_count - kw_count
  when 1
    if next_up&.is_kw? && next_up.indent >= @target_indent
        up: ->(line, _, _) { line == next_up },
        down: ->(line, _, _) { false }
  when -1
    if next_down&.is_end? && next_down.indent >= @target_indent
        up: ->(line, _, _) { false },
        down: ->(line, _, _) { line == next_down }
  # Rollback any uncommitted changes

scan_adjacent_indent() click to toggle source

Scan blocks based on indentation of next line above/below block

Determines indentaion of the next line above/below the current block.

Normally this is called when a block has expanded to capture all “neighbors” at the same (or greater) indentation and needs to expand out. For example the ‘def/end` lines surrounding a method.

# File lib/syntax_suggest/around_block_scan.rb, line 200
def scan_adjacent_indent
  before_after_indent = []

  before_after_indent << (@scanner.next_up&.indent || 0)
  before_after_indent << (@scanner.next_down&.indent || 0)

  @target_indent = before_after_indent.min
  scan_while { |line| line.not_empty? && line.indent >= @target_indent }

scan_neighbors_not_empty() click to toggle source

Finds code lines at the same or greater indentation and adds them to the block

# File lib/syntax_suggest/around_block_scan.rb, line 188
def scan_neighbors_not_empty
  @target_indent = @orig_indent
  scan_while { |line| line.not_empty? && line.indent >= @target_indent }
scan_while() { |line| ... } click to toggle source

Main work method

The scan_while method takes a block that yields lines above and below the block. If the yield returns true, the @before_index or @after_index are modified to include the matched line.

In addition to yielding individual lines, the internals of this object give a mini DSL to handle common situations such as stopping if we’ve found a keyword/end mis-match in one direction or the other.

# File lib/syntax_suggest/around_block_scan.rb, line 88
def scan_while
  stop_next_up = false
  stop_next_down = false

    up: ->(line, kw_count, end_count) {
      next false if stop_next_up
      next true if @force_add_hidden && line.hidden?
      next true if @force_add_empty && line.empty?

      if @stop_after_kw && kw_count > end_count
        stop_next_up = true

      yield line
    down: ->(line, kw_count, end_count) {
      next false if stop_next_down
      next true if @force_add_hidden && line.hidden?
      next true if @force_add_empty && line.empty?

      if @stop_after_kw && end_count > kw_count
        stop_next_down = true

      yield line

stop_after_kw() click to toggle source

Tells ‘scan_while` to look for mismatched keyword/end-s

When scanning up, if we see more keywords then end-s it will stop. This might happen when scanning outside of a method body. the first scan line up would be a keyword and this setting would trigger a stop.

When scanning down, stop if there are more end-s than keywords.

# File lib/syntax_suggest/around_block_scan.rb, line 73
def stop_after_kw
  @stop_after_kw = true
