Fastparse 2: Even Faster Scala Parser Combinators


Just cut a new release of my Fastparse parser combinator library. It’s a ground-up rewrite 2-4x faster than the original implementation, with mostly the same API and semantics. If you like Scala and you like parser combinators, take a look!


It should be called Fasterparser, like those innovative Vin Diesel movies.

I hope someday you get together with propensive to produce FasterParserFuriouser, I’m pretty sure there would be a video game tie-in.

The tag line: “Fixed in Ammonite. Going for broke in FP2.”
