    infer-owner

    Infer the owner of a path based on the owner of its nearest existing parent

    USAGE

    const inferOwner = require('infer-owner')
     
    inferOwner('/some/cache/folder/file').then(owner => {
      // owner is {uid, gid} that should be attached to
      // the /some/cache/folder/file, based on ownership
      // of /some/cache/folder, /some/cache, /some, or /,
      // whichever is the first to exist
    })
     
    // same, but not async
    const owner = inferOwner.sync('/some/cache/folder/file')
     
    // results are cached!  to reset the cache (eg, to change
    // permissions for whatever reason), do this:
    inferOwner.clearCache()

    This module endeavors to be as performant as possible. Parallel requests for ownership of the same path will only stat the directories one time.

    API

    • inferOwner(path) -> Promise<{ uid, gid }>

      If the path exists, return its uid and gid. If it does not, look to its parent, then its grandparent, and so on.

    • inferOwner(path) -> { uid, gid }

      Sync form of inferOwner(path).

    • inferOwner.clearCache()

      Delete all cached ownership information and in-flight tracking.
