    Regex Combiner

    Combines an array of regexes into a single regex.

    Example

    var regexCombiner = require('regex-combiner');
    var combined = regexCombiner([
        /abc$/,
        /abcd+e/,
        /a.*/,
        /bar/,
        'bad+' // strings are accepted too
    ]);
    /* /(a(bc($|d+e)|.*)|ba(r|d+))/ */
     
    combined.test('abcdddde'); // true
    combined.test('bar'); // true
    combined.test('baddd'); // true

    Caveats

    • No flags! Combining case-sensitive and case-insensitive regexes is ... difficult, so all flags are ignored.
    • No back-references in the input regexes. Things like /(['"])foo\1/ are just not going to work.
    • The resulting regex is pretty much only going to be useful for .test(). Trying to get something meaningful from the groups is not going to be fun.
