userid

Simple nodejs library with native bindings for getting uid and gid information.

Installation

$ npm install userid 

This relies on GNU getgrname, getgrid, etc and works on POSIX systems only. Sorry, windows.

Usage

Example

 
var userid = require('userid');
 
// get user id
console.log("root's uid is:", userid.uid("root"));
 
// get group id
console.log("wheel's gid is:", userid.gid("wheel"));
 
// get user name
console.log("uid 0 name is:", userid.username(0));
 
// get group name 
console.log("gid 0 name is:", userid.groupname(0));
