Optimize Toolset

I’ve always been into building performant and accessible sites, but lately I’ve been taking it extremely seriously. So much so that I’ve been building a tool to help me optimize and monitor the sites that I build to make sure that I’m making an attempt to offer the best experience to those who visit them. If you’re into performant, accessible and SEO friendly sites, you might like it too! You can check it out at Optimize Toolset.

About

Hi, 👋, I’m Ryan Hefner  and I built this site for me, and you! The goal of this site was to provide an easy way for me to check the stats on my npm packages, both for prioritizing issues and updates, and to give me a little kick in the pants to keep up on stuff.

As I was building it, I realized that I was actually using the tool to build the tool, and figured I might as well put this out there and hopefully others will find it to be a fast and useful way to search and browse npm packages as I have.

If you’re interested in other things I’m working on, follow me on Twitter or check out the open source projects I’ve been publishing on GitHub.

I am also working on a Twitter bot for this site to tweet the most popular, newest, random packages from npm. Please follow that account now and it will start sending out packages soon–ish.

Open Software & Tools

This site wouldn’t be possible without the immense generosity and tireless efforts from the people who make contributions to the world and share their work via open source initiatives. Thank you 🙏

Returns `true` if the given string looks like a glob pattern or an extglob pattern. This makes it easy to create code that only uses external modules like node-glob when necessary, resulting in much faster code execution and initialization time, and a bet

Install

Install with npm:

$ npm install --save is-glob

You might also be interested in is-valid-glob and has-glob.

Usage

var isGlob = require('is-glob');

Default behavior

True

Patterns that have glob characters or regex patterns will return true:

isGlob('!foo.js');
isGlob('*.js');
isGlob('**/abc.js');
isGlob('abc/*.js');
isGlob('abc/(aaa|bbb).js');
isGlob('abc/[a-z].js');
isGlob('abc/{a,b}.js');
//=> true

Extglobs

isGlob('abc/@(a).js');
isGlob('abc/!(a).js');
isGlob('abc/+(a).js');
isGlob('abc/*(a).js');
isGlob('abc/?(a).js');
//=> true

False

Escaped globs or extglobs return false:

isGlob('abc/\\@(a).js');
isGlob('abc/\\!(a).js');
isGlob('abc/\\+(a).js');
isGlob('abc/\\*(a).js');
isGlob('abc/\\?(a).js');
isGlob('\\!foo.js');
isGlob('\\*.js');
isGlob('\\*\\*/abc.js');
isGlob('abc/\\*.js');
isGlob('abc/\\(aaa|bbb).js');
isGlob('abc/\\[a-z].js');
isGlob('abc/\\{a,b}.js');
//=> false

Patterns that do not have glob patterns return false:

isGlob('abc.js');
isGlob('abc/def/ghi.js');
isGlob('foo.js');
isGlob('abc/@.js');
isGlob('abc/+.js');
isGlob('abc/?.js');
isGlob();
isGlob(null);
//=> false

Arrays are also false (If you want to check if an array has a glob pattern, use has-glob):

isGlob(['**/*.js']);
isGlob(['foo.js']);
//=> false

Option strict

When options.strict === false the behavior is less strict in determining if a pattern is a glob. Meaning that some patterns that would return false may return true. This is done so that matching libraries like micromatch have a chance at determining if the pattern is a glob or not.

True

Patterns that have glob characters or regex patterns will return true:

isGlob('!foo.js', {strict: false});
isGlob('*.js', {strict: false});
isGlob('**/abc.js', {strict: false});
isGlob('abc/*.js', {strict: false});
isGlob('abc/(aaa|bbb).js', {strict: false});
isGlob('abc/[a-z].js', {strict: false});
isGlob('abc/{a,b}.js', {strict: false});
//=> true

Extglobs

isGlob('abc/@(a).js', {strict: false});
isGlob('abc/!(a).js', {strict: false});
isGlob('abc/+(a).js', {strict: false});
isGlob('abc/*(a).js', {strict: false});
isGlob('abc/?(a).js', {strict: false});
//=> true

False

Escaped globs or extglobs return false:

isGlob('\\!foo.js', {strict: false});
isGlob('\\*.js', {strict: false});
isGlob('\\*\\*/abc.js', {strict: false});
isGlob('abc/\\*.js', {strict: false});
isGlob('abc/\\(aaa|bbb).js', {strict: false});
isGlob('abc/\\[a-z].js', {strict: false});
isGlob('abc/\\{a,b}.js', {strict: false});
//=> false
