Edn.el is an emacs lisp library for reading and writing the data format edn.
I highly recommend installing edn.el through elpa.
It's available on melpa:
M-x package-install edn
;;; Reading (edn-read "[(:foo bar :bar 12 ) \"foo\"]") ;; => [(:foo bar :bar 12 ) "foo"] ;;; Writing (edn-print-string [(:foo bar :bar 12 ) \"foo\"]) ;; => "[(:foo bar :bar 12 ) \"foo\"]" ;;; Using the internal representations (edn-set-p (edn-list-to-set '(1 2 3 3))) ;; => t (edn-set-to-list (edn-list-to-set '(1 2 3 3))) ;; => (1 2 3) (defvar time (edn-inst-to-time (edn-read "#inst \"1985-04-12T23:20:50.52Z\""))) ;; => (7357 47698) ; a time object as found in `time-date.el' (edn-inst-p (edn-time-to-inst time)) ;; => t (defvar uuid (edn-read "#uuid \"f81d4fae-7dec-11d0-a765-00a0c91e6bf6\"")) (edn-uuid-p uuid) ;; => t (edn-uuid-to-string uuid) ;; => "f81d4fae-7dec-11d0-a765-00a0c91e6bf6" ;;; Custom readers (edn-read "#my/handler value") ;; => error unknown handler (edn-add-reader :my/reader (lambda (val) :val)) (edn-read "#my/handler value") ;; => :val ;;; Custom writers (cl-defstruct my-type (val)) (edn-print-string (make-my-type :val)) ;; => "[cl-struct-my-type \"val\"]" (edn-add-writer #'my-type-p (lambda (v) (concat "#my/value " (my-type-val v)))) (edn-print-string (make-my-type :val)) ;; => :val
Emacs lisp doesn't have have a data structure dedicated to sets. In emacs lisp, and in other lisps like common lisp, sets are just lists without duplicate elements. This means that when outputting edn and we encounter a list without duplicates we can't know if we should write a set or not. There are three solutions to this problem:
I've chosen to take the third approach.
The problem of representation also arises with regard to instants in time and UUIDs. I've opted to create an internal representation here as well.
Functions are provided to convert between
edn-time and the repesentation used in
Elisp doesn't have support for bignums without pulling in
calc or an external lib. For now I've opted to just throw an error when edn containing bignums is put on the input stream.
Please do! There is a suite of tests that I'd like you to add to whenever a bug is fixed or a new feature is added. If you don't do this I'm likely to break your code when I stumble around the codebase.
To fetch the test dependencies, install cask if you haven't already, then:
$ cd /path/to/edn.el $ cask
Run the tests with:
$ make test
