Documentation

firstPathToExist

Given an array of paths, firstPathToExist will return the first path which passes an fs.exists() test. The paths are processed in order.

var existingPath = fsCoalesce.firstPathToExist([false, 'bogus', '~/i-exist.text']);
console.log( "Existing path: ", existingPath );

This will output Existing path: /Users/testuser/i-exist.text.

readFirstFileToExistSync

Given an array of paths, readFirstFileToExistSync will read and return the contents of the first file to exist. The paths are processed in order.

var contents = fsCoalesce.readFirstFileToExistSync([false, 'bogus', '~/i-exist.text']);
console.log( "Contents: ", contents );

This will output Contents: therefore I am.

readFirstJsonFileToExistSync

Given an array of paths, readFirstJsonFileToExistSync will read, JSON parse, and return the contents of the first file to exist. The paths are processed in order.

var json = fsCoalesce.readFirstJsonFileToExistSync([false, 'bogus', '~/i-exist.json']);
console.log( "JSON: ", JSON.stringify(json) );

This will output JSON: {"message":"therefore I am"}.
