#QVS. Parser for QlikView load scripts

Command line tool to check syntax of QlikView load scripts

Can be used with InQlik-Tools for Sublime Text as optional build system, or as standalone tool


Built with Dart programming language, based on Lukas Renggli's PetitParser library.

##Installation and usage

Easiest way is to download prepackaged qvs-dist archive (approximately 3.5Mb) from qvs-dist and extract files into some location. Then run dart.exe qvs.snapshot from that directory to get command-line help. To incomporate qvs into InQlik-Tools for Sublime Text, edit file QlikView.sublime-build change strings c:\\qvs\\ to directory where you extracted qvs-dist (or just extract files into c:\qvs) Then copy QlikView.sublime-build file into User package directory (in Sublime Text menu command Preferences \ Browse Packages... then directory User)

Alternatevely you can install DartEditor, clone main qvs repository and use sourcecode.
