Get the local downloads folder, for all major platforms.

Usage

const downloadsFolder = require('downloads-folder');
 
console.log(downloadsFolder());

Installation

$ npm install downloads-folder

API

downloadsFolder()

Return the location of the downloads folder for the current platform.

Warning: On *nix, this will perform synchronous operations, so don't place it where concurrency is required. It's probably the best to just determine this folder once when your application starts.
