    try-open NPM version NPM downloads Build Status

    Tries to open a file using fs.openSync (only necessary with sync), fails gracefully if the file path does not exist on the file system. Since fs.existsSync has been deprecated, this can be used as an alternative.

    Install

    Install with npm:

    $ npm install try-open --save

    See the node.js fs.open documentation for more details.

    Usage

    var fs = require('fs');
    var tryOpen = require('try-open');
     
    var fd = tryOpen('package.json', 'r');
    //=> 17
     
    // close the file
    fs.closeSync(fd);
