    node-quick-temp

    Create and remove temporary directories. Useful for build tools, like Broccoli plugins. Smart about naming, and placing them in ./tmp if possible, so you don't have to worry about this.

    Installation

    npm install --save quick-temp

    Usage

    var quickTemp = require('quick-temp');

    Creating a temporary directory

    To make a temporary and assign its path to this.tmpDestDir, call either one of these:

    quickTemp.makeOrRemake(this, 'tmpDestDir');
    // or
    quickTemp.makeOrReuse(this, 'tmpDestDir');

    If this.tmpDestDir already contains a path, makeOrRemake will remove it first and then create a new directory, whereas makeOrReuse will be a no-op.

    Both functions also return the path of the temporary directory.

    An optional third argument lets you override the class-name component of the temporary directory name:

    quickTemp.makeOrRemake(this, 'tmpDestDir', 'TreeMerger');
    quickTemp.makeOrRemake(this, 'tmpDestDir', this.constructor.name); // default

    Removing a temporary directory

    To remove a previously-created temporary directory and all its contents, call

    quickTemp.remove(this, 'tmpDestDir');

    This will also assign this.tmpDestDir = null. If this.tmpDestDir is already null or undefined, it will be a no-op.
