content-tree

Generate a json representation of a file tree with file information

node-content-tree

Generate a json representation of a file tree with file information

npm install content-tree

var tree = require('content-tree')('/path/to/directory');
tree.generate(function(tree){
  console.log(tree);
});

Or if you want a promise based interface

var tree = require('content-tree')('/path/to/directory');
tree.generate().then(function(tree){
  console.log(tree);
});

Then it's probably useful to use something like traverse.

Each file object will have not only the file path but the stat file object as well as mime type and charset information:

{
  path: 'file path',
  basename: 'file basename',
  stat: [Stat object],
  mimeType: 'file mimetype',
  charset: 'file charset'
}

If you wish to enhance the information for each object, you can use the file event as such:

var somePath = '/path/to/directory';
var tree = require('content-tree')(somePath);
tree.on('file', function(file){
  file.relativePath = file.path.replace(somePath +'/', '');
})
tree.generate();
