findTags(tagsFilePath, tag, [options], callback)

Get all tags matching the tag specified from the tags file at the path.

  • tagsFilePath - The string path to the tags file.

  • tag - The string name of the tag to search for.

  • options - An optional options object containing the following keys:

    • caseInsensitive - true to include tags that match case insensitively, (default: false)
    • partialMatch - true to include tags that partially match the given tag (default: false)
  • callback - The function to call when complete with an error as the first

           argument and an array containing objects that have `name` and
           `file` keys and optionally a `pattern` key if the tag file
           specified contains tag patterns.
    

Example

ctags = require 'ctags'

ctags.findTags('/Users/me/repos/node/tags', 'exists', (error, tags=[]) ->
  for tag in tags
    console.log("#{tag.name} is in #{tag.file}")

createReadStream(tagsFilePath, [options])

Create a read stream to a tags file.

The stream returned will emit data events with arrays of tag objects that have name and file keys and optionally a pattern key if the tag file specified contains tag patterns.

An error event will be emitted if the tag file cannot be read.

An end event will be emitted when all the tags have been read.

  • tagsFilePath - The string path to the tags file.

  • options - An optional object containing the following keys.

    • chunkSize - The number of tags to read at a time (default: 100).

Returns a stream.

Example

ctags = require 'ctags'

stream = ctags.createReadStream('/Users/me/repos/node/tags')
stream.on 'data', (tags) ->
  for tag in tags
    console.log("#{tag.name} is in #{tag.file} with pattern: #{tag.pattern}")
