Safe FS


Stop getting EMFILE errors! Open only as many files as the operating system supports.

  • Install: npm install --save safefs
  • Use: require('safefs')
  • var safefs = require('safefs')

    SafeFS uses graceful-fs to wrap all of the standard file system methods to avoid EMFILE errors among other problems.

    On-top of graceful-fs, SafeFS also adds additional wrapping on the following methods:

    • writeFile(path, data, options?, next) - ensure the full path exists before writing to it
    • appendFile(path, data, options?, next) - ensure the full path exists before writing to it
    • mkdir(path, mode?, next) - mode defaults to 0o777 & (~process.umask())
    • unlink(path, next) - checks if the file exists before removing it

    SafeFS also define these additional methods:

    • ensurePath(path, options, next) - ensure the full path exists, equivalent to unix's mdir -p path
    • getParentPathSync(path) - returns the parent directory of the path
