Spoofax 2.5.3 (02-05-2019)

Spoofax 2.5.3 is a minor release with bugfixes, performance improvements, and new small and/or experimental features.



  • Added support for getting the selected term in Stratego builders/transformations. In the builder tuple (node, _, ast, path, projectPath), the first term (node) is now the selected term when a builder is executed in the context of an editor with a selection. The term is selected by finding the outermost term that has an origin that fits in the selection.
  • Fixed a bug that prevented source transformations from being run if context or analysis were missing.
  • Changed constraint analyzer to support more multi-file scenarios.


  • Added an incremental variant of the JSGLR2 parser (experimental).


  • Improved preformance of AST resolution lookups.

Statix (experimental)

  • Fixed bugs and improved performance.


  • Added a lifecycle mapping that adds a Spoofax nature to an imported spoofax-project.
