Example

Get the first matching pair of braces:

var balanced = require('balanced-match') console.log(balanced('{', '}', 'pre{in{nested}}post')) console.log(balanced('{', '}', 'pre{first}between{second}post')) console.log(balanced(/\s+\{\s+/, /\s+\}\s+/, 'pre { in{nest} } post'))

The matches are:

$ node example.js { start: 3, end: 14, pre: 'pre', body: 'in{nested}', post: 'post' } { start: 3, end: 9, pre: 'pre', body: 'first', post: 'between{second}post' } { start: 3, end: 17, pre: 'pre', body: 'in{nest}', post: 'post' }

API

var m = balanced(a, b, str)

For the first non-nested matching pair of a and b in str, return an object with those keys:

  • start the index of the first match of a
  • end the index of the matching b
  • pre the preamble, a and b not included
  • body the match, a and b not included
  • post the postscript, a and b not included

If there's no match, undefined will be returned.

If the str contains more a than b / there are unmatched pairs, the first match that was closed will be used. For example, {{a} will match ['{', 'a', ''] and {a}} will match ['', 'a', '}'].

var r = balanced.range(a, b, str)

For the first non-nested matching pair of a and b in str, return an array with indexes: [ <a index>, <b index> ].

If there's no match, undefined will be returned.

If the str contains more a than b / there are unmatched pairs, the first match that was closed will be used. For example, {{a} will match [ 1, 3 ] and {a}} will match [0, 2].
