API

matcher(inputs, patterns, [options])

Accepts an array of input's and pattern's.

Returns an array of inputs filtered based on the patterns.

matcher.isMatch(input, pattern, [options])

Returns a boolean of whether the input matches the pattern.

input

Type: string

String to match.

options

Type: Object

caseSensitive

Type: boolean
Default: false

Treat uppercase and lowercase characters as being the same.

Ensure you use this correctly. For example, files and directories should be matched case-insensitively, while most often, object keys should be matched case-sensitively.

pattern

Type: string

Use * to match zero or more characters. A pattern starting with ! will be negated.
