var containsPath = require('contains-path');

containsPath('foo/bar', 'foo'); //=> true
containsPath('foo/bar', 'bar'); //=> true
containsPath('foo/bar', 'qux'); //=> false

// returns false for partial matches
containsPath('foobar', 'foo');  //=> false
containsPath('', 'foo'); //=> false
containsPath('', 'bar'); //=> false

// prefix with "./" to match from beginning of filepath
containsPath('bar/foo', 'foo');   //=> true
containsPath('bar/foo', './foo'); //=> false


Prefix with ! to invert matching behavior:

containsPath('foo/bar', '!foo'); //=> false
containsPath('foo/bar', '!qux'); //=> true



Type: boolean

Default: false

Disable case sensitivity.

containsPath('foo/bar', 'FOO');                 //=> false
containsPath('foo/bar', 'FOO', {nocase: true}); //=> true


Type: boolean

Default: false

Allow "partial" matches:

containsPath('foobar', 'foo');                        //=> false                 
containsPath('foobar', 'foo', {partialMatch: true});  //=> true 

containsPath('', 'foo');                       //=> false                 
containsPath('', 'foo', {partialMatch: true}); //=> true
