Faultless AST for Open Biomedical Ontologies.

Overview

This library provides a mostly-complete implementation of the OBO flat file format 1.4.

  • Data structures - fastobo provides a complete owned AST for the OBO language, with constructors and covenience traits where applicable. There is a plan to provide borrowed data structures as well, to be able to build a view of an OBO document from borrowed data.
  • Parsing - The parser is implemented using pest, and is reexported from the fastobo-syntax crate. Most structures implement the FromPair trait which allows to build a data structure from a stream of pest tokens.
  • Errors - All functions in that crate that return a Result will always use the Error struct defined in the error module. Errors reported by pest are very meaningful, and can give the exact location of a syntax error encountered by the parser.
  • Semantics - This library exports specific methods that can be used to edit an OBO syntax tree with the semantics expected in the format guide: mapping identifiers to URLs, adding default namespaces, or expanding entity frames using treat-xrefs macros.

Warning: this project adheres to Semantic Versioning, but the API is likely to change a lot before the release of a stable 1.0.

Features

All the following features are enabled by default, but can be disabled and cherry-picked using the default-features = false option in the Cargo.toml manifest of your project:

  • memchr - Use the memchr library to improve parser speed when searching for a particular character in a buffer.

Usage

Add fastobo to the [dependencies] sections of your Cargo.toml manifest:

[dependencies]
fastobo = "0.7.0"

The top-level fastobo module provides several functions to parse an OboDoc. Use fastobo::from_reader to load an OBO document from a BufRead implementor (use std::io::BufReader if needed):

extern crate fastobo;
extern crate ureq;

fn main() {
    let response = ureq::get("http://purl.obolibrary.org/obo/ms.obo").call();
    let mut reader = std::io::BufReader::new(response.into_reader());

    match fastobo::from_reader(&mut reader) {
        Ok(doc) => println!("Number of MS entities: {}", doc.entities().len()),
        Err(e) => panic!("Could not parse the Mass-Spec Ontology: {}", e),
    }
}
