regexp-measure

Regular Expression Enhancements

This library exposes a RegExp subclass to the RegExp built-in class that extends the exec method to return offset information for capture groups:

const { RegExp2 } = require("regexp-measure");
 
const text = "zabbcdef";
const re = new RegExp2("ab*(cd(?<Z>ef)?)");
const result = re.test(text);
console.log(result.index);      // 1
console.log(result.offsets);    // [0, 3, 5]
 
// result.offsets[0] is the offset of result[0] from result.index
const a = text.slice(result.index + result.offsets[0]);
console.log(a);                 // abbcdef
 
// result.offsets[1] is the offset of result[1] from result.index
const b = text.slice(result.index + result.offsets[1]);
console.log(b);                 // cdef
 
// result.offsets[2] is the offset of result[2] from result.index
const c = text.slice(result.index + result.offsets[2]);
console.log(c);                 // ef
 
// result.offsets.groups stores the offsets to named capture groups
const d = text.slice(result.index + result.offsets.groups["Z"]);
console.log(d);                 // ef
