Expand POSIX bracket expressions (character classes) in glob patterns.

Install

Install with npm:

$ npm install --save expand-brackets

Install with yarn:

$ yarn add expand-brackets

Usage

var brackets = require('expand-brackets');
brackets(string[, options]);

Params

The main export is a function that takes the following parameters:

  • pattern {String}: the pattern to convert
  • options {Object}: optionally supply an options object
  • returns {String}: returns a string that can be used to create a regex

Example

console.log(brackets('[![:lower:]]'));
//=> '[^a-z]'

API

brackets

Parses the given POSIX character class pattern and returns a string that can be used for creating regular expressions for matching.

Params

  • pattern {String}
  • options {Object}
  • returns {Object}

.match

Takes an array of strings and a POSIX character class pattern, and returns a new array with only the strings that matched the pattern.

Params

  • arr {Array}: Array of strings to match
  • pattern {String}: POSIX character class pattern(s)
  • options {Object}
  • returns {Array}

Example

const brackets = require('expand-brackets');
console.log(brackets.match(['1', 'a', 'ab'], '[[:alpha:]]'));
//=> ['a']

console.log(brackets.match(['1', 'a', 'ab'], '[[:alpha:]]+'));
//=> ['a', 'ab']

.isMatch

Returns true if the specified string matches the given brackets pattern.

Params

  • string {String}: String to match
  • pattern {String}: Poxis pattern
  • options {String}
  • returns {Boolean}

Example

const brackets = require('expand-brackets');

console.log(brackets.isMatch('a.a', '[[:alpha:]].[[:alpha:]]'));
//=> true
console.log(brackets.isMatch('1.2', '[[:alpha:]].[[:alpha:]]'));
//=> false

.matcher

Takes a POSIX character class pattern and returns a matcher function. The returned function takes the string to match as its only argument.

Params

  • pattern {String}: Poxis pattern
  • options {String}
  • returns {Boolean}

Example

const brackets = require('expand-brackets');
const isMatch = brackets.matcher('[[:lower:]].[[:upper:]]');

console.log(isMatch('a.a'));
//=> false
console.log(isMatch('a.A'));
//=> true

.makeRe

Create a regular expression from the given pattern.

Params

  • pattern {String}: The pattern to convert to regex.
  • options {Object}
  • returns {RegExp}

Example

const brackets = require('expand-brackets');
const re = brackets.makeRe('[[:alpha:]]');
console.log(re);
//=> /^(?:[a-zA-Z])$/

.create

Parses the given POSIX character class pattern and returns an object with the compiled output and optional source map.

Params

  • pattern {String}
  • options {Object}
  • returns {Object}

Example

const brackets = require('expand-brackets');
console.log(brackets('[[:alpha:]]'));
// { options: { source: 'string' },
//   input: '[[:alpha:]]',
//   state: {},
//   compilers:
//    { eos: [Function],
//      noop: [Function],
//      bos: [Function],
//      not: [Function],
//      escape: [Function],
//      text: [Function],
//      posix: [Function],
//      bracket: [Function],
//      'bracket.open': [Function],
//      'bracket.inner': [Function],
//      'bracket.literal': [Function],
//      'bracket.close': [Function] },
//   output: '[a-zA-Z]',
//   ast:
//    { type: 'root',
//      errors: [],
//      nodes: [ [Object], [Object], [Object] ] },
//   parsingErrors: [] }

Options

options.sourcemap

Generate a source map for the given pattern.

Example

var res = brackets('[:alpha:]', {sourcemap: true});

console.log(res.map);
// { version: 3,
//   sources: [ 'brackets' ],
//   names: [],
//   mappings: 'AAAA,MAAS',
//   sourcesContent: [ '[:alpha:]' ] }

POSIX Character classes

The following named POSIX bracket expressions are supported:

  • [:alnum:]: Alphanumeric characters (a-zA-Z0-9])
  • [:alpha:]: Alphabetic characters (a-zA-Z])
  • [:blank:]: Space and tab ([ t])
  • [:digit:]: Digits ([0-9])
  • [:lower:]: Lowercase letters ([a-z])
  • [:punct:]: Punctuation and symbols. ([!"#$%&'()*+, -./:;<=>?@ [\]^_``{|}~])
  • [:upper:]: Uppercase letters ([A-Z])
  • [:word:]: Word characters (letters, numbers and underscores) ([A-Za-z0-9_])
  • [:xdigit:]: Hexadecimal digits ([A-Fa-f0-9])

See posix-character-classes for more details.

Not supported

Changelog

v4.0.0

Breaking changes

  • Snapdragon was updated to 0.12. Other packages that integrate expand-brackets need to also use snapdragon 0.12.
  • Minimum Node.JS version is now version 4.

v3.0.0

Breaking changes

  • Snapdragon was updated to 0.11. Other packages that integrate expand-brackets need to also use snapdragon 0.11.

v2.0.0

Breaking changes

  • The main export now returns the compiled string, instead of the object returned from the compiler

Added features

  • Adds a .create method to do what the main function did before v2.0.0

v0.2.0

In addition to performance and matching improvements, the v0.2.0 refactor adds complete POSIX character class support, with the exception of equivalence classes and POSIX.2 collating symbols which are not relevant to node.js usage.

Added features

  • parser is exposed, so that expand-brackets parsers can be used by upstream parsers (like micromatch)
  • compiler is exposed, so that expand-brackets compilers can be used by upstream compilers
  • source maps

source map example

var brackets = require('expand-brackets');
var res = brackets('[:alpha:]');
console.log(res.map);

{ version: 3,
     sources: [ 'brackets' ],
     names: [],
     mappings: 'AAAA,MAAS',
     sourcesContent: [ '[:alpha:]' ] }
