Glob To Regular Expression

Build Status

Turn a -wildcard style glob (`".min.js") into a regular expression (/^.*.min.js$/`)!

To match bash-like globs, eg. ? for any single-character match, [a-z] for character ranges, and {*.html, *.js} for multiple alternatives, call with { extended: true }.

Install

npm install glob-to-regexp

Usage

var globToRegExp = require('glob-to-regexp');
var re = globToRegExp("f*uck");
re.test("firetruck"); // true
re.test("fuck"); // true

re = globToRegExp("*.min.js");
re.test("http://example.com/jquery.min.js"); // true
re.test("http://example.com/jquery.min.js.map"); // false

re = globToRegExp("*/www/*.js");
re.test("http://example.com/www/app.js"); // true
re.test("http://example.com/www/lib/factory-proxy-model-observer.js"); // true

// Extended globs
re = globToRegExp("*/www/{*.js,*.html}", { extended: true });
re.test("http://example.com/www/app.js"); // true
re.test("http://example.com/www/index.html"); // true
