    TMPFILE

    A (very) simple NodeJS module designed to give you valid temporary file paths.

    Installation

    npm install tmpfile or yarn add tmpfile

    Example Usage

    const tmpfile = require('tmpfile');
    const tmpFileOpts = {
      prefix: 'bill-',
      suffix: '-accounting',
      extension: '.txt'
    };
    
    const filePath = tmpfile(tmpFileOpts);
    

    Notes

    • Files are not created by this package! The paths returned are confirmed as available and valid for you to use yourself.
    • Paths will always be in your OS's temp directory, e.g. /tmp for (most?) Linux distributions.
    • Prefixes and suffixes are taken exactly as they are entered - if you want symbols, e.g. hyphens, between them and the file name, be sure to include them yourself!
    • You can enter an extension with or without a dot - one will be added if you miss it out.
    • Entering no extension will result in an extensionless file name, which is just fine.

    Install

    npm i tmpfile
