calmcard
not-so-wild wildcard string matching
Calmcard provides a simple string pattern matching with * as the only special character which is a placeholder for any sequence of characters, unless it is escaped.
Calmcard was made to have a glob like tool for arbitrary strings where slashes have no special meaning. It also does explicitly not use regular expressions because of speed, proper escaping and because writing regular expression strings in JavaScript gets messy and unreadable very quick.

Examples

  • foo*bar will match "foo123bar"
  • foo\*bar will match "foo\*bar" but not "foo123bar"

Installation

Currently, calmcard is built for node.js and available via NPM.
npm install calmcard

Usage

var calmcard = require("calmcard");

calmcard("foo*bar", "foo123bar"); // -> true
calmcard("foo*bar", "foobar"); // -> false
