1.0.0 • Public • Published

Config

NPM version Build Status Coverage Status Dependencies

Returns a directory for user-specific configuration files.

Installation

$ npm install utils-configdir

Usage

var configdir = require( 'utils-configdir' );

configdir( [path] )

Returns a base directory for user-specific configuration files.

var dir = configdir();
// => e.g., /Users/<username>/Library/Preferences

To append a path to the base directory, provide a path argument.

var dir = configdir( 'appname/config' );
// => e.g., /Users/<username>/Library/Preferences/appname/config

On non-windows platforms, if the module is unable to locate the current user's home directory, the module returns null.

// When unable to resolve a home directory...
var dir = configdir();
// returns null

Notes

  • On Windows platforms, the module first checks for a LOCALAPPDATA environment variable before checking for an APPDATA environment variable. This means that machine specific user configuration files have precedence over roaming user configuration files.

Examples

var configdir = require( 'utils-configdir' );
 
console.log( configdir( 'appy/config' ) );

To run the example code from the top-level application directory,

$ node ./examples/index.js

All new feature development should have corresponding unit tests to validate correct functionality.
