Quick Take

import { strict as assert } from "assert";
import { pull } from "array-pull-all-with-glob";

assert.deepEqual(
  pull(
    [
      "keep_me",
      "name-1",
      "name-2",
      "name-jhkgdhgkhdfghdkghfdk",
    ],
    ["name-*"]
  ),
  ["keep_me"]
);

Purpose

This program removes strings from array if they match a glob pattern. It's like Lodash's _.pullAll opens in a new tab except with globby opens in a new tab on top.

For example, we use it in email-comb to whitelist CSS class/id names.

API

pull(
  sourceArray,
  removeThese,
  [opts]
)

In other words, it's a function which takes three input arguments, third-one being optional (marked by square brackets).

API - Input

Input argument Type Obligatory? Description
sourceArray Array of zero or more strings yes Source array of zero or more strings
removeThese Array of zero or more strings or a string yes Array of zero or more strings or a single string to be removed from the source array
otps Plain object no An Optional Options Object. See its API below.

By the way, none of the input arguments are mutated. That's checked by unit tests from group 4.x

An Optional Options Object

Type: object - an Optional Options Object.

options object's key Type Default Description
caseSensitive Boolean true Are comparisons case-sensitive? Default answer is yes, but you can override it to no using this.

Here are all defaults in one place for copying:

{
caseSensitive: true,
}

When unused, Optional Options Object can be also passed as a null or undefined value.

API - Output

Type Description
Array Array of strings with elements removed
