Convert objects into directory structures and back again
Convert JSON objects into directory structures in the file system, and back again. Primarily useful when writing tests.
npm install --save-dev fixturify
var fixturify = require'fixturify'fsmkdirSync'testdir'var obj ='foo.txt': 'foo.txt contents''subdir':'bar.txt': 'bar.txt contents''symlink': '../foo.txt'fixturifywriteSync'testdir' obj // write it to diskfixturifyreadSync'testdir' // => deep-equals obj
File contents are decoded and encoded with UTF-8.
Symlinks are represented as arrays of length 1. It does not matter whether the symlink target exists.
To keep the API simple, node-fixturify has the following limitations:
Reading or setting file stats (last-modified time, permissions, etc.) is not supported.
Special files like FIFOs, sockets, or devices are not supported.
File contents are automatically encoded/decoded into strings. Binary files are not supported.
Symlinks are represented as arrays of length 1. We do this because symlinks are important to support, and arrays, though ugly, are an easy way to implement them.
