    Balanced-Brackets

    This is a pertial rewrite of the perl Text::Balanced module, especially for balanced brackets.

    To use

    const BalancedBrackets = require('balanced-brackets');
    
    let balanced = new BalancedBrackets(str);
    let obj = balanced.extractBracketed(strOfBrackets [, prefix]);
    

    balanced-brackets takes a string in it's constructor, generally one containing brackets, and then calls extractBracketed with a string of brackets to find e.g. '(){}<>[]' and an optional prefix regex of things to ignore before search for the brackets. The function will return an object:

    {
        extracted: ,
        remainder: ,
        skipped: ,
    }
    

    The object keeps it's place in the string, meaning you can find more than one set of brackets within the string, by looping over the function:

    const BalancedBrackets = require('balanced-brackets');
    const balanced = new BalancedBrackets('(abcd) 123 (efgh)');
    while (true) {
        let obj = balanced.extractBracketed('()', /[a-z0-9\s]*/i);
    
        if (!obj.extracted) {
            break;
        } else {
            actual.push(obj.extracted);
        }
    }
    
    

    Where obj would be an array of:

    [
        (abcd),
        (efgh)
    ]
    

    Install

    npm i balanced-brackets
