Usage

var isGlob = require('is-glob');

True

Patterns that have glob characters or regex patterns will return true:

isGlob('!foo.js');
isGlob('*.js');
isGlob('**/abc.js');
isGlob('abc/*.js');
isGlob('abc/(aaa|bbb).js');
isGlob('abc/[a-z].js');
isGlob('abc/{a,b}.js');
isGlob('abc/?.js');
//=> true

Extglobs

isGlob('abc/@(a).js');
isGlob('abc/!(a).js');
isGlob('abc/+(a).js');
isGlob('abc/*(a).js');
isGlob('abc/?(a).js');
//=> true

False

Escaped globs or extglobs return false:

isGlob('abc/\\@(a).js');
isGlob('abc/\\!(a).js');
isGlob('abc/\\+(a).js');
isGlob('abc/\\*(a).js');
isGlob('abc/\\?(a).js');
isGlob('\\!foo.js');
isGlob('\\*.js');
isGlob('\\*\\*/abc.js');
isGlob('abc/\\*.js');
isGlob('abc/\\(aaa|bbb).js');
isGlob('abc/\\[a-z].js');
isGlob('abc/\\{a,b}.js');
isGlob('abc/\\?.js');
//=> false

Patterns that do not have glob patterns return false:

isGlob('abc.js');
isGlob('abc/def/ghi.js');
isGlob('foo.js');
isGlob('abc/@.js');
isGlob('abc/+.js');
isGlob();
isGlob(null);
//=> false

Arrays are also false (If you want to check if an array has a glob pattern, use has-glob):

isGlob(['**/*.js']);
isGlob(['foo.js']);
//=> false
