Go-wildcard is forked from Minio project


This part of Minio project, 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 importing the entire Minio project ...

Two function are available MatchSimple and Match

  • MatchSimple only covert * usage (which is faster than Match)
  • Match support full wildcard matching, * and ?

I know Regex, but they are much more complex, and slower (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

WARNING: Unlike the GNU "libc", this library have no equivalent to "FNM_FILE_NAME". To do this you can use "path/filepath"

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 with 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)
