Custom parser

To provide your own parser, you have to create a new PHP Class implementing CodeMonitoring\Framework\Parse\ParserInterface. That’s all you have to do.

The interface defines the following methods:

rface ParserInterface extends CanHandleFileInterface, PriorityInterface

 * This method will be called once the parser will be used.
 * Due this method the file to parse will be provided.
 * Most likely you will "persist" the file in a property for later usage in
 * getData method.
 * @param Resource $file
 * @return void
public function setFileToParse(Resource $file);

 * Will provide the parsed information to the world.
 * This method should return whatever the parser has parsed. Most likely
 * this method will be called by the importer.
 * @return mixed
public function getData();

Use Eel expression for canHandle

In addition you can use the trait CodeMonitoring\Framework\Parse\EelParsingDetectionTrait to implement the canHandle method. The trait will implement this method and provide the property $eelExpression which can be configured through Objects.yaml.

An example can be found in CodeMonitoring.Parser.Checkstyle. Add the following to your parser class:

use EelParsingDetectionTrait;

And the following to your Object.yaml:

        value: 'file.fileExtension == "xml" && String.substr(lines[1], 1, 10) == "checkstyle" && String.substr(lines[1], 21, 3) == "2.5"'

Adjust the first line to match your fully qualified class name. The expression will be parsed through the trait and result in true or false depending on expression and file.

The above expression will check that the extension of file is equal to xml and that the second line contains checkstyle in version 2.5.

Currently the following context is provided to parse the expression:
