Go-wildcard is forked from Minio project


This part of Minio project is a very cool, fast and light wildcard pattern matching.

Originally the purpose of this fork is to give access to this "lib" under Apache license, without import the entire Minio project ...

Two function are available MatchSimple and Match

  • MatchSimple only covert * usage (he is a bit faster)
  • Match support full wildcard matching, * and ?

I know Regex, but this is a big part, and it is slow (even prepared regex) ...
I know Glob, but most of the time, I only need simple wildcard matching.

This library remains under Apache License Version 2.0, but MinIO project is migrated to GNU Affero General Public License 3.0 or later from 069432566f

How to

Using this fork

go get

Using Official Minio (GNU Affero General Public License 3.0 or later)

From 81d5688d56 the minio pkg are moved to

go get

Quick Example

This example shows a Go file which pattern matching ...

package main

import (

	wildcard ""

func main() {
    str := "daaadabadmanda"
    pattern := "da*da*da*"
    result := wildcard.MatchSimple(pattern, str)
	fmt.Println(str, pattern, result)

    pattern = "?a*da*d?*"
    result = wildcard.Match(pattern, str)
	fmt.Println(str, pattern, result)
