    Easy FS Scripting With NodeJS

    Build Status Dependency Status devDependency Status

    It is specially created to get rid of routines when writing CLI tools using NodeJS. File system. Recursive. Synchronous...

    Why?

    • Looking for a way to remove directory recursively in nodejs?
    • Looking how to copy files recursively in nodejs?
    • Want to move some your files with nodejs using globs?
    • Or maybe tar/zip some dir synchronously?
    • Tired writing shell-jobs with nodejs?
    • Welcome!

    Because it should be as simple as possible. Let's see by example. Assume it is required to make a script which look-ups for all available .doc files in some given directory recursively, move them to a given destination, creates tarball from it and does a clean-up.

    var fs = require('fs-cli');
    var temp = './doc';
    fs.mv('/home/user/docs/**/*.doc', temp);
    fs.tar(temp, './all-docs.tgz');
    fs.rm(temp);

    Oh, really? - Yeah!

    Of course, it's not very error-prone to write like that. You may want to add some checks:

    var fs = require('fs-cli');
    var temp = './doc';
    function die() {
        console.log(fs.error().stack);
        process.exit();
    }
    fs.mv('/home/user/docs/**/*.doc', temp) || die();
    fs.tar(temp, './all-docs.tgz') || die();
    fs.rm(temp) || die();

    Want to remove all .svn folders with its contents from a certain folder? Here it is:

    var fs = require('fs-cli');
    fs.rm('./my-project/**/.svn');

    -- Simple? Short? Cross-platform? Synchronous? Recursive? FS? JavaScript?
    -- Yeah! That's why!
    -- But... NodeJS has Sync versions of fs functions...
    -- We know, we use them inside. But not always...

    Do you like that, want to help? Welcome!

    Install

    npm install fs-cli
    

    Use

    var fs = require('fs-cli');
    

    What Does It Can

    • ls/lsa/lsl/lsal/lsls/lsals/list: directory listing
    • rm: remove given path with all its contents, globs are allowed
    • mv: move source to destination, create missing paths recursive, +globs
    • cp: copy recursive, globs are allowed
    • mkdir: create path recursively
    • chmod/rchmod: change permissions/do it recursive, globs allowed
    • chown/rchown: change owner/do it recursive, globs are welcome
    • touch: touch, just touch... ah, will create missing path also
    • tar/untar: yup. tar. untar. paths as usual, would be created
    • zip/unzip: see above, the same, but zip
    • readfile/writefile: whenever you need, read, write, all sync, autopaths
    • open/read/write/close: big files? well...
    • exists: checks if exists, return file system object stats if exists
    • relpath/realpath: paths transform, cross-platform, exists-free
    • basename/dirname: aliases for native path.basename/path.dirname
    • glob: alias for glob.sync

    Achtung!

    All thease stuff is highly experimental and non bugs-free. It is under an active development, so use it at your own risk! One day we may change everything here. You warned.
