Splearch

Splearch provides a simplified abstraction of regex searching to locate patterns in a string. It works very similar to how Dir.glob does in ruby in that * matches word characters, ** matches all characters, and braces can be used to expand lists to multiple matching possibilities. It simply builds and returns a RegExp object, which you can use however you see fit.

Install

npm install splearch

Usage

var regex = Splearch('foo.{bar**,baz{1..5}}.buz')
regex.test('foo.bart.simpson.buz') // true
regex.test('foo.baz3.buz') // true

// You can also disable specific features
Splearch('foo.*.bux', {
  braces: false // Can be broken down to 'ranges' and 'lists'
  , double_splats: false
})
