matchkeys ( array, patterns, property )

Return an array of objects that contain arrays with matching strings. patterns may be glob patterns, strings, or an array of glob patterns or strings.
Example::
var arr = [
  {name: 'a', keywords: ['apple', 'orange', 'grape']},
  {name: 'b', keywords: ['banana', 'orange', 'pineapple']},
  {name: 'c', keywords: ['watermelon', 'strawberry', 'kiwi']},
  {name: 'd', keywords: ['watermelon', 'blah']},
  {name: 'e', keywords: ['watermelon', 'blah', 'lodash']},
];
console.log(matchkeys(arr, 'apple'));
//=> [{name: 'a', keywords: ['apple', 'orange', 'grape']}]

console.log(matchkeys(arr, 'o*'));
//=>
// [
//   {name: 'a', keywords: ['apple', 'orange', 'grape']},
//   {name: 'b', keywords: ['banana', 'orange', 'pineapple']}
// ]

Params:
  • array {Object|Array}:
    patterns {String|Array}: The glob patterns or strings to use for matching.
  • prop {String}: Optionally pass the name of the property to search.
  • return {Array} Array of objects with matching strings.

matchkeys.filter ( array, patterns )

Wrapper around multimatch. Returns an array of matching strings, from an array or arrays of strings.
Example:
var keywords = [
  ['apple', 'orange', 'grape'],
  ['banana', 'orange', 'pineapple'],
  ['watermelon', 'strawberry', 'kiwi'],
  ['watermelon', 'blah'],
  ['watermelon', 'blah', 'lodash'],
];

console.log(matchkeys.filter(keywords, '{p,b}*'));
//=> ['banana', 'pineapple', 'blah']

Params:
  • array {Array}: Can be an array or an array of arrays.
  • pattern {Array|String}: The glob pattern to use.
  • return {Array}
