Why?

  • Copying files is sensitive operation with possible side-effects.
  • Standard utilities do not sufficiently inform the user about what is going on.

Features

  • Safely copy files and directories without overwriting.
  • Skip overwriting existing files, inform instead (or configure to overwrite instead with option = {overwrite: true}.
  • Create new directories if needed.
  • Clearly and colorfully inform about all actions peformed.

Install

$ npm install --save gently-copy

Usage

var gentlyCopy = require('gently-copy')
 
var fileList = ['some-file', 'some-dir']
var dest = 'some-dest'
 
gentlyCopy(fileList, dest) // no overwriting (default)
gentlyCopy(fileList, dest, {overwrite: true}) // force overwriting

Console output with colors, thanks to the wonderful chalk:
