Install

NPM

  • Install: npm install --save safefs
  • Module: require('safefs')
  • Editions

    This package is published with the following editions:

    • safefs aliases safefs/index.js which uses Editions to automatically select the correct edition for the consumers environment
    • safefs/source/index.js is Source + ESNext + Require
    • safefs/es2015/index.js is Babel Compiled + ES2015 + Require

    Older environments may need Babel's Polyfill or something similar.

    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
