Quotes

trait Quotes

Quotation context provided by a macro expansion or in the scope of scala.quoted.staging.run. Used to perform all operations on quoted Expr or Type.

It contains the low-level Typed AST API metaprogramming API. This API does not have the static type guarantees that Expr and Type provide.

Low-level Typed AST metaprogramming API.

Low-level Typed AST metaprogramming API.

Provides all functionality related to AST-based metaprogramming.

Each type XYZ in the API is defined as an abstract type type XYZ. Methods on XYZ are provided by a given XYZMethods which implements extension methods on XYZ in the trait XYZMethods. The XYZ module is defined by a val XYZ: XYZModule which contains the methods defined in XYZModule. Type tests (TypeTest) are also given to perform subtype checks on these types.
