The file structure of STDLIB (the standard library) is simple. It's located in the
src/stdlib/directory. In this root directory, you'll see two files:
stdlib.es6. Each of these have their own uses:
stdlib.es6: This constructs the global scope (i.e. the standard library).
api.es6: This is the API itself, it defines useful functions and provides the Cheddar primitives (
CheddarNumber, etc.) to you. This also helps avoid cyclic dependency errors.
Here's a diagram of the further folder structure
|-- stdlib.es6 Standard Library List
|-- api.es6 The STDLIB API
|-- ns/ Namespaces
| |- <name>/ The implementations
| |- <name>.es6 Compiles the namespace's properties/methods
|-- primitive/ Primitive Libraries
|- <name>/ A specific primitive
|- lib/ The implementations
|- lib.es6 Compiles the methods/properties
|- static.es6 The static properties
<name>would be replaced with the name of that specific item.
If you which to create a new namespace, or a global class. Create a
ns/and a folder in the same directory.
<name>.es6will be where your class/namespace is defined. Individual method implementations can go in the folder you created. For example, if I was creating a package named "Geometry" my files/folders would look like:
