API

createTree(root, definition)

Creates under the root directory a fs tree as specified in the definition.

WARNING: createTree removes the root directory before creating the specified fs tree.

Arguments
  • root string: root directory under which the fs tree is created. The directory is created if it doesn't exist, it's emptied if it already exists
  • definition object: an object describing the fs tree to create. Its properties' values can either be:
    • strings or buffers: in which case a file with the property key as name and the property value as content will be created
    • definition objects: in which case a directory with the property key as name will be created, and under it a fs tree as described by the property value (which of course is a definition object)
Returns

Nothing.

Example
createTree("mydir", {
    "level-0-file": Buffer.from("level-0-file content\n"),
    "level-0-dir": {
        "level-1-file": "level-1-file content\n",
        "level-1-dir": {}
    }
});

Creates a fs tree so that:

$ tree mydir
mydir
├── level-0-file
└── level-0-dir
    ├── level-1-file
    └── level-1-dir
$ cat mydir/level-0-file
level-0-file content
$ cat mydir/level-0-dir/level-1-file
level-1-file content

destroyTree(root)
