simple and fast library for text-based parser combinators


Simple and fast Elixir library for text-based parser combinators.

Combinators are built during runtime and compiled into multiple clauses with binary matching. This provides benefits of performance, composability by not relying on macros, no runtime dependency on NimbleParsec, and no "use" footprints on your modules.

The goal of this library is to focus on a set of primitives for writing efficient parser combinators. The composition aspect means you should be able to use those primitives to implement higher level combinators.

Note this library does not handle low-level binary parsing. In such cases, Elixir's bitstring syntax is recommended.
