Gitignore to Minimatch Utility

by Nicholas C. Zakas

If you find this useful, please consider supporting my work with a donation.

Description

A function that converts a gitignore pattern into a minimatch pattern. There are subtle differences between these two formats, and depending on the utilities you're using, you may need one or the other.

Usage

Node.js

Install using npm or yarn:

npm install @humanwhocodes/gitignore-to-minimatch --save

# or

yarn add @humanwhocodes/gitignore-to-minimatch

Import into your Node.js project:

// CommonJS
const { gitignoreToMinimatch } = require("@humanwhocodes/gitignore-to-minimatch");

// ESM
import { gitignoreToMinimatch } from "@humanwhocodes/gitignore-to-minimatch";

Deno

Import into your Deno project:

import { gitignoreToMinimatch } from "https://cdn.skypack.dev/@humanwhocodes/gitignore-to-minimatch?dts";

Browser

It's recommended to import the minified version to save bandwidth:

import { gitignoreToMinimatch } from "https://cdn.skypack.dev/@humanwhocodes/gitignore-to-minimatch?min";

However, you can also import the unminified version for debugging purposes:

import { gitignoreToMinimatch } from "https://cdn.skypack.dev/@humanwhocodes/gitignore-to-minimatch";

API

After importing, call gitignoreToMinimatch with a string argument, like this:

const minimatchPattern = gitignoreToMinimatch("foo");
console.log(minimatchPattern);      // "**/foo"
