API

var expand = require('brace-expansion');

var expanded = expand(str)

Return an array of all possible and valid expansions of str. If none are found, [str] is returned.

Valid expansions are:

/^(.*,)+(.+)?$/ // {a,b,...}

A comma separated list of options, like {a,b} or {a,{b,c}} or {,a,}.

/^-?\d+\.\.-?\d+(\.\.-?\d+)?$/ // {x..y[..incr]}

A numeric sequence from x to y inclusive, with optional increment. If x or y start with a leading 0, all the numbers will be padded to have equal length. Negative numbers and backwards iteration work too.

/^-?\d+\.\.-?\d+(\.\.-?\d+)?$/ // {x..y[..incr]}

An alphabetic sequence from x to y inclusive, with optional increment. x and y must be exactly one character, and if given, incr must be a number.

For compatibility reasons, the string ${ is not eligible for brace expansion.

Installation

With npm do:

npm install brace-expansion
