Modgrammar is a general-purpose library for constructing language parsers and interpreters using context-free grammar definitions in Python. Language parsing rules (grammars) can be defined using standard Python syntax, and then used to parse and validate input strings or files into meaningful data structures. Possible applications range from simple input validation, to complex expression evaluation, to full-fledged programming language parsing for compilers or interpreters.

Documentation: http://don-ramon.github.com/modgrammar-py2

Some features include:

  • Pure-Python cross-platform design.
  • Grammar definitions are created using standard Python syntax.
  • Supports arbitrarily complex grammars, including recursion.
  • Defining a grammar automatically creates a working parser in the process (no compilation steps or lengthy startup times).
  • Parse results contain full parse-tree information, including heirarchical tokenization of the input.
  • Parse result objects can be given custom methods and behaviors as part of the grammar definition, producing rich data objects.
  • Modular grammar design supports distributing grammars as python library modules, combining grammars from multiple sources into larger grammars, and even parameterized grammar definitions.
  • Python 2.6+, 3.x support
