path-extra contains methods that aren't included in the vanilla Node.js path package.

Node.js: path-extra

This module simply modifies the Node.js 'path' object with extra methods. It is a drop in replacement for the path module.

$ npm install path-extra
var path = require('path-extra');

You can still use all of the vanilla Node.js path methods.


path.tempdir() // returns a temporary directory that is operating system specific 
path.homedir() // returns the user's home directory 
path.datadir(appname) // returns a directory to store data in for an app with the given name
