pfff is a set of tools and APIs to perform some static analysis (e.g. to find bugs), dynamic analysis, source code indexing, code search, code visualizations, code navigations, or style-preserving source-to-source transformations such as refactorings on source code.
Here are the pfff tools:
pfff, a small command line program to test the different programming language parsers.
scheck, a lint-like bugs finder.
stags, a more precise Emacs tag generator.
sgrep, a syntactical grep, to make it easy to find precise code patterns.
spatch, a syntactical patch, to make it easy to refactor code.
codemap, a semantic source code visualizer/navigator/searcher which can also leverage the information computed by
codegraph, a package/module/class dependency visualizer as well as a source code indexer (a.k.a., grapher).
codequery, an interactive tool a la SQL to query information about the structure of a codebase using Prolog as the query engine.
pfff_db, which does some simple global analysis on a set of source files and store the data in a marshalled or JSON form in a file somewhere (e.g.,
