    mktemp.createDir('XXXXXXX', function(err, path) {
      if (err) throw err;
     
      // path match a /^[\da-zA-Z]{7}$/ 
      console.log(path);

    mktemp functions are replace to random string from placeholder "X" in template. see example:

    mktemp.createFileSync('XXXXXXX');  // match a /^[\da-zA-Z]{7}$/ 
    mktemp.createFileSync('XXX.tmp');  // match a /^[\da-zA-Z]{3}\.tmp$/ 
    mktemp.createFileSync('XXX-XXX');  // match a /^XXX-[\da-zA-Z]{3}$/
