Package description

What is is-extglob?

The is-extglob npm package is used to check if a string has an extglob pattern. Extglob patterns are extensions to the basic glob patterns, allowing for more expressive matches. This package is particularly useful in applications that need to parse, interpret, or validate file paths and patterns for more complex matching criteria than simple wildcard matches.

What are is-extglob's main functionalities?

Check if a string is an extglob pattern

This feature allows you to check if a given string is an extglob pattern. The function returns true if the string is an extglob pattern, otherwise false. This is useful for validating or parsing strings that are expected to be in extglob format.

"const isExtglob = require('is-extglob');\nconsole.log(isExtglob('!(pattern)')); // true\nconsole.log(isExtglob('pattern')); // false"
