    parent-module

    Get the path of the parent module

    Node.js exposes module.parent, but it only gives you the first cached parent, which is not necessarily the actual parent.

    Install

    npm install parent-module

    Usage

    // bar.js
    import parentModule from 'parent-module';
    
    export default function bar() {
    	console.log(parentModule());
    	//=> '/Users/sindresorhus/dev/unicorn/foo.js'
    };
    // foo.js
    import bar from './bar.js';
    
    bar();

    API

    parentModule(filePath?)

    By default, it will return the path of the immediate parent.

    filePath

    Type: string
    Default: __filename

    The file path of the module of which to get the parent path.

    Useful if you want it to work multiple module levels down.

    Tip

    Combine it with read-pkg-up to read the package.json of the parent module.

    import path from 'node:path';
    import {readPackageUpSync} from 'read-pkg-up';
    import parentModule from 'parent-module';
    
    console.log(readPackageUpSync({cwd: path.dirname(parentModule())}).pkg);
    //=> {name: 'chalk', version: '1.0.0', …}
