Share constant definitions between programming languages and make your constants constant again

Introduction

Reconstant lets you share constant and enum definitions between programming languages.

Constants are defined in a yaml file and converted to idiomatic definitions in multiple programming languages.

Supported outputs include C/CPP header files, Python3 (using the enum module), Python2, Javascript, VueMixins, and Java.

This is still a WIP. Feel free to open an issue on github with questions or a PR with support for additional languages.

Example

Create an input file

test.yaml

constants:
- name: SOME_CONSTANT
  value: "this is a constant string"
- name: OTHER_CONSTANT
  value: 42

enums:
- name: SomeEnum
  values:
    - A
    - B
    - C
- name: OtherEnum
  values:
    - FOO
    - BAR

outputs:
  python:
    path: autogenerated_constants.py
  javascript:
    path: autogenerated_constants.js
  c:
    path: autogenerated_constants.h
  python2:
    path: autogenerated_constants_py2.py
  vue:
    path: autogenerated_vue_constants.js
  java:
    path: AutogeneratedConstants.java

Install and run reconstant

pip install git+https://github.com/aantn/reconstant.git
reconstant test.yaml

Generated Output Files

Python

autogenerated_constants.py

# autogenerated by reconstant - do not edit!
from enum import Enum

# constants
SOME_CONSTANT = "this is a constant string"
OTHER_CONSTANT = 42

# enums
class SomeEnum(Enum):
	A = 0
	B = 1
	C = 2

class OtherEnum(Enum):
	FOO = 0
	BAR = 1

Javascript

autogenerated_constants.js

// autogenerated by reconstant - do not edit!

// constants
export const SOME_CONSTANT = "this is a constant string"
export const OTHER_CONSTANT = 42

// enums
export const SomeEnum = {
	A : 0,
	B : 1,
	C : 2,
}
export const OtherEnum = {
	FOO : 0,
	BAR : 1,
}

C/CPP

autogenerated_constants.h

// autogenerated by reconstant - do not edit!
#ifndef AUTOGENERATED_CONSTANTS_H
#define AUTOGENERATED_CONSTANTS_H

// constants
const char* SOME_CONSTANT = "this is a constant string";
const int OTHER_CONSTANT = 42;

// enums
typedef enum { A, B, C } SomeEnum;
typedef enum { FOO, BAR } OtherEnum;

#endif /* AUTOGENERATED_CONSTANTS_H */

Python2-Compatible Output

autogenerated_constants_py2.py

# autogenerated by reconstant - do not edit!

# constants
SOME_CONSTANT = "this is a constant string"
OTHER_CONSTANT = 42

# enums
SOME_ENUM_A = 0
SOME_ENUM_B = 1
SOME_ENUM_C = 2
OTHER_ENUM_FOO = 0
OTHER_ENUM_BAR = 1

Vue Mixins

autogenerated_vue_constants.py

// autogenerated by reconstant - do not edit!

// constants
export const SOME_CONSTANT = "this is a constant string"
export const OTHER_CONSTANT = 42

// enums
export const SomeEnum = {
	A : 0,
	B : 1,
	C : 2,
}

SomeEnum.Mixin = {
  created () {
      this.SomeEnum = SomeEnum
  }
}
export const OtherEnum = {
	FOO : 0,
	BAR : 1,
}

OtherEnum.Mixin = {
  created () {
      this.OtherEnum = OtherEnum
  }
}

Java

AutogeneratedConstants.java

// autogenerated by reconstant - do not edit!
public final class AutogeneratedConstants {

// constants
	public static final String SOME_CONSTANT = "this is a constant string";
	public static final int OTHER_CONSTANT = 42;

// enums
	public enum SomeEnum {
		A, 
		B, 
		C
	}
	public enum OtherEnum {
		FOO, 
		BAR
	}

  • Add rust support

    Add rust support

    Adds basic rust support, with a couple of minor issues.

    Rust enum variants typically are UpperCamelCase, but obviously it can't know what the proper casing is when it is given something in all caps. Other than that this should work in the usual case - maybe some arithmetic could be added to find the best int size for a value?

  • Add java support

    Add java support

    This adds basic support for Java, and includes an update to the test.yaml file, the readme, and gitignore.

    Let me know if anything needs to be changed!

  • Fortran constants

    Fortran constants

    If you would like to add Fortran constants, or what is called a PARAMETER in Fortran, sample syntax for the basic types is

    integer, parameter :: two = 2
    real, parameter :: pi = 3.1416
    character (len=*), parameter :: name = "Eve"
    logical, parameter :: print_progress = .false.
