search-path - locate and fetch files from the filesystem using search path

A simple extension to Array to hold various search path directories and provide checks for existence and locate/fetch files accordingly.

Usage

Example usage (coffeescript):

SearchPath = require 'search-path'
search = new SearchPath basedir: __dirnameexts: [ 'txt''doc' ]encoding: 'utf-8'
 
# include example and test/foo directories as part of search (relative 
# to basedir) 
search.add 'example''test/foo'
 
console.log search                  # shows current contents of search path 
console.log (search.locate 'hello') # shows where 'hello', 'hello.txt', or 'hello.doc' was found 
console.log (search.fetch 'hello')  # retrieves located content using 'encoding' 

API

exists (paths..., opts)

Checks whether passed in paths exists in the local filesystem.

opts.basedir | string | prefix for relative paths opts.isDirectory | boolean | if true, checks if directory opts.isFile | boolean | if true, checks if file

base (path)

Update the current basedir to use for relative paths.

search.base('/home')
  .include 'some-user'
  .include 'other-user/docs'
 
console.log search
 
## include (paths...) 
 
Adds additional directories into search path if they exist.
 
## locate (files...) 
 
Finds all *files* existing in the current search path. Always returns
an array containing one or more matching files.
 
## resolve (files...) 
 
Locates all *files* existing in the current search path including any
files matching the configured *exts* as part of the current search
path instance.
 
## fetch (files...) 
 
Grabs content(s) of all resolved *files* using the *encoding* for the
search path.
 
This is a convenience function and simply applies `fs.readFileSync` on
the results of `resolve` from above.
