Usage

var split = require('browser-split');

// Basic use
split('a b c d', ' ');
// => ['a', 'b', 'c', 'd']

// With limit
split('a b c d', ' ', 2);
// => ['a', 'b']

// Backreferences in result array
split('..word1 word2..', /([a-z]+)(\d+)/i);
// => ['..', 'word', '1', ' ', 'word', '2', '..']

API

split(string, seperator[, limit])

Splits a string into an array of strings using a regex or string separator. Matches of the separator are not included in the result array. However, if separator is a regex that contains capturing groups, backreferences are spliced into the result each time separator is matched. Fixes browser bugs compared to the native String.prototype.split and can be used reliably cross-browser.

  • string is the String to split.
  • seperator is a RegExp or String to split by.
  • limit is the optional maximum number of items included in the result Array.
