The new GDScript parser¶
The GDScript parser is written using the token based Python parser as a base due to similarities with the Python language. Some adjustments have been made for the differences between GDScript and Python. A short list of major differences:
- Files are classes. All symbols are attributes of the class defined by the file.
- There are no functions because all symbols are class attributes, so all “functions” are methods.
- Variables are explicitly declared with the var keyword.
- Enum, signal and const keywords are added.
