Filename Incrementer

Tools to Increment filenames.

Usage

Install with npm:

npm install filename-incrementer

Example:

var incr = require('filename-incrementer');
 
// Get filename with incremented value.
incr.getNewName('path/filename-###.ext')
  .then(name => console.log(name));
 
// logs: 'filename-3.ext', assuming there was already a filename-2.ext in that directory

Methods

Almost all methods accept the two same parameters:

  • {string} path - Path to files, with '###' (or pattern described in incrPattern) where the incrementer is set, e.g. '/path/filename-###.ext'.
  • {string} [incrPattern] - If for one reason you want to use a different pattern than '###' to match the incrementer's place in the filename, you provide it here.

Exampels below assume the following file structure:

directory
   |- example-3.ext
   |- example-4.ext
   |- file-3.ext
   |- file-4.ext
   |- test-1.ext
   |- test-2.ext
   |- test-3.ext

The first two methods will probably be the most usefull ones:

getNew

Get incremented value for files matching the pattern.

Signature:

getNew(path: string, incrPattern: string = '###'): Promise<number>

Examples:

incr.getNew('directory/file-###.ext')
  .then(value => console.log(value));
 
// logs: 5
 
 
incr.getNew('directory/test-@@.ext', '@@')
  .then(value => console.log(value));
 
// logs: 4

getNewName

Get filename with incremented value.

Signature:

getNewName(path: string, incrPattern: string = '###'): Promise<string>

Examples:

incr.getNewName('directory/file-###.ext')
  .then(name => console.log(name));
 
// logs: 'file-5.ext'
 
 
incr.getNewName('directory/test-@@.ext', '@@')
  .then(name => console.log(name));
 
// logs: 'test-4.ext'

getMax

Get max. incrementer value for files matching the pattern.

Signature:

getMax(path: string, incrPattern: string = '###'): Promise<number>

Examples:

incr.getMax('directory/file-###.ext')
  .then(value => console.log(value));
 
// logs: 4
 
 
incr.getMax('directory/test-@@.ext', '@@')
  .then(value => console.log(value));
 
// logs: 3

getMin

Get min. incrementer value for files matching the pattern.

Signature:

getMin(path: string, incrPattern: string = '###'): Promise<number>

Example:

incr.getMin('directory/example-###.ext')
  .then(value => console.log(value));
 
// logs: 3

getFiles

Get file paths matching the pattern.

Signature:

getFiles(path: string, incrPattern: string = '###'): Promise<string[]>

Example:

incr.getFiles('directory/example-###.ext')
  .then(files => console.log(files));
 
// logs: [
//   'directory/example-3.ext',
//   'directory/example-4.ext'
// ]

getFilesMap

Get map of paths matching the pattern and their incrementer value.

Signature:

getFilesMap(path: string, incrPattern: string = '###'): Promise<{[path: string]: number}>

Example:

incr.getFiles('directory/example-###.ext')
  .then(map => console.log(map));
 
// logs: {
//   'directory/example-3.ext': 3,
//   'directory/example-4.ext': 4
// }

getMatchPattern

Get glob or regexp matching pattern.

Signature:

getMatchPattern(type: 'glob'|'regexp', path: string, incrPattern: string = '###'): string

Examples:

let ptrn1 = incr.getMatchPattern('glob', 'directory/file-###.ext');
 
console.log(ptrn1);
 
// logs: 'directory/file-+([0-9]).ext'
 
 
let ptrn2 = incr.getMatchPattern('regexp', 'directory/test-@@.ext', '@@');
 
console.log(ptrn2);
 
// logs: '^directory/test\-([0-9]+)\.ext$'
