Glob string comparison

I have a glob string, and a file path, is it possible to test the file path to see if the string matches the glob?

let path = ['/home/location/file.scss','/home/location/file.cat'];
let pattern = '**/*.{sass,scss}';

path.forEach(file => {
if(/* Test success */) {
// read file and process it's content
}
});

Answer

Can you use regex? Because you could convert the pattern to regex as /\.s[ac]ss$/i, and then do

path.forEach(file => {
  if (file.match(pattern)) {
  }
});

There's also glob-to-regexp, in the case you have to write the pattern in glob.
