Replace placeholder values in a file path.

Install

Install with npm:
$ npm install --save placeholders

Install with yarn:
$ yarn add placeholders

Install

Install with npm:
$ npm install --save placeholders

Usage

var placeholders = require('placeholders')(options);

placeholders('/site/blog/:path', {path: 'foo-bar.md'});
//=> '/site/blog/foo-bar.md'

Options

Options may be passed to the main function.
var placeholders = require('placeholders')(options);

options.regex

Pass a custom regex to use for replacements.
Type: {RegExp}
Default: the default regex matches es6 delimiters and lodash template syntax.
Example
Match printf-like strings:
var placeholders = require('placeholders')({
  regex: /%([^%]+)%/
});

options.data

Pass a data object on the main function to use for resolving values.
Type: {Object}
Default: undefined
Example
var placeholders = require('placeholders')({
  data: {foo: 'one', bar: 'two'}
});

placeholders(':foo/:bar/:baz', {baz: 'three'})
//=> 'one/two/three'

returns a function when no data is passed

This allows you to reuse the same pattern with different data, like a compiled template.
var placeholders = require('placeholders')({
  regex: /%([^%]+)%/
});

var fn = placeholders('foo/%bar%/%baz%');
fn({bar: 'one', baz: 'two'})
//=> 'foo/one/two'
fn({bar: 'a', baz: 'b'})
//=> 'foo/a/b'
