confer

Locate and parse JSON files

confer

Locate and parse a JSON file.

Confer begins its search in the specified directory or process.cwd(). If a file is not found, confer then walks up the directory tree one level at a time until a file is found. If confer has not found a file after the walk, it will look for a file in $HOME.

npm install confer
var config = require('confer')('config.json') || {};

Locate and parse a JSON file. Returns a JSON object or false if a file was not found.

  • file {string} filename or path
  • dir {string} (optional) directory to begin from; default is process.cwd()

If file is a path then confer will parse the given file directly, bypassing the locate step.

Locate a file by walking up the directory tree. Returns a file path or false if a file was not found.

  • file {string} filename
  • dir {string} (optional) directory to begin from; default is process.cwd()
