Install

Install with npm:
$ npm install --save match-requires

Usage

const matches = require('match-requires');
console.log(matches('require(\'a-b-c\');\nvar fooBar = require(\'foo-bar\');'));

Returns:
[ { string: 'require(\'a-b-c\');', 
    variable: '', 
    name: 'a-b-c' },
  { string: 'var fooBar = require(\'foo-bar\');',
    variable: 'fooBar',
    name: 'foo-bar' } ]

Ignore requires in code comments

To ignore require() statements found inside code comments, pass true as the second argument to strip comments before matching. Alternatively, you may pass a function as the second argument to use your own approach to stripping comments.
Without comments stripped
console.log(matches('/* require(\'a-b-c\');*/\nvar fooBar = require(\'foo-bar\');')); 
// [ { string: 'require(\'a-b-c\');', variable: '', name: 'a-b-c' },
//   { string: 'var fooBar = require(\'foo-bar\');',
//     variable: 'fooBar',
//     name: 'foo-bar' } ]

With comments stripped
console.log(matches('/* require(\'a-b-c\');*/\nvar fooBar = require(\'foo-bar\');', true));
// [ { string: 'var fooBar = require(\'foo-bar\');',
//     variable: 'fooBar',
//     name: 'foo-bar' } ]

With custom function
const str = '/* require(\'a-b-c\');*/\nvar fooBar = require(\'foo-bar\');';
const fn = require('some-comment-stripping-library');
console.log(matches(str, fn));
// [ { string: 'var fooBar = require(\'foo-bar\');',
//     variable: 'fooBar',
//     name: 'foo-bar' } ]
