Command line

A command line interface is provided.


The grammar command provides a simple way to check the current EBNF grammar:

> storyscript grammar
 boolean: TRUE| FALSE
 null: NULL
 number: INT| FLOAT


The lex command print a list of all the tokens in a story:

> storyscript lex hello.story
 ...tokens list


The parse command returns the internal representation of the abstract syntax tree (AST) after the parsing phase:

> storyscript lex hello.story
 ...tokens list


The compile command compiles stories:

> storyscript parse hello.story
Script syntax passed!

A JSON output of the compilation is available:

> storyscript parse -j hello.story

  "stories": {
    "one.story": {
      "tree": {

It’s possible to specify an EBNF file, instead of using the generated one. This is particularly useful for debugging:

> storyscript parse --ebnf-file grammar.ebnf hello.story


Outputs the command-line help:

> storyscript --help


Prints the current version:

> storyscript --version
