Build status

Crystal-to-C++ transpiler [WIP]

Generated code can be compiled with c++14 compiler (tested with g++ 6.2.0)

List of supported AST nodes can be found [here](NODES.md)

You can try it here

CLI Usage

  1. Compile src/cppize/transpiler.cr (it may take some time as it requires Crystal parser)
  2. Launch compiled executable with -h flag to view all command line flags

Implemented -fFEATUREs

Flag Description
-funsafe-cast Tells transpiler to transpile casts to C-style casts instead of static_casts
-fprimitive-types Tells transpiler to use fundamental C++ types when possible
-fauto-module-type Allows transpiler to detect if module is included :warning: This option can slow down transpilation
-fimplicit-static Enables static module methods' calls

Library Usage

# Initialize transpiler
transpiler = Cppize::Transpiler.new

# Set error and warning callbacks
transpiler.on_warning{|e| puts e.to_s}
transpiler.on_error{|e| puts e.to_s; exit 1}

# Transpile file
transpiled_code = transpiler.parse_and_transpile_file("./file.cpp.cr")
# Transpile code from IO
transpiled_code = transpiler.parse_and_transpile_file(File.open("./file.cpp.cr"),"./file.cpp.cr")
# Transpile code from string
transpiled_code = transpiler.parse_and_transpile_file("def foo; bar(true) end","<test>")

Things to improve in already supported AST nodes

  1. Improve automatic return
  2. Improve module type detection (namespace / includable)

Development

Implementing nodes

See [src/cppize/nodes/expressions.cr](src/cppize/nodes/expressions.cr) for example

Adding transpile-time macros

See [src/cppize/macros/__cpp__.cr](src/cppize/macros/cpp.cr) for example
