The man page of the iPythonCell parser for Universal Ctags

Version:5.9.0
Manual group:Universal Ctags
Manual section:7

SYNOPSIS

ctags … --extras={subparser} --languages=+iPythonCell,Python \
[--extras-IPythonCell=+{doubleSharps}] \
[--regex-IPythonCell=/<PATTERN>/\n/c/] …

DESCRIPTION

iPythonCell is a subparser stacked on top of the Python parser. It works when:

  • The Python parser is enabled,
  • the subparser extra is enabled, and
  • the iPythonCell parser itself is enabled.

iPythonCell extracts cells explained as in vim-ipython-cell (https://github.com/hanschen/vim-ipython-cell/blob/master/README.md).

KIND(S)

The iPythonCell parser defines only a cell kind.

EXTRA(S)

Tagging cells staring with ##... is disabled by default because the pattern is too generic; with that pattern unwanted tags can be extracted.

Enable doubleSharps language specific extra for tagging cells staring with ##....

CUSTOMIZING

If your favorite cell pattern is not supported in the parser, you can define the pattern in your .ctagd.d/your.ctags or command lines. Here is an example how to support “# CTAGS: ...”:

“input.py”

x=1
# CTAGS: DEFINE F
def F():
        # CTAGS: DO NOTING
        pass

“output.tags” with “--options=NONE --sort=no --extras=+{subparser} --regex-IPythonCell=/[ t]*# CTAGS:[ ]?(.*)$/1/c/ -o - input.py”

x    input.py        /^x=1$/;"       v
DEFINE F     input.py        /^# CTAGS: DEFINE F$/;" c
F    input.py        /^def F():$/;"  f
DO NOTING    input.py        /^      # CTAGS: DO NOTING$/;"  c

You can put “--regex-IPythonCell=/[ \t]*# CTAGS:[ ]?(.*)$/\1/c/” in your.ctags to avoid specifying the pattern repeatedly.
