Windows.Storage.KnownFolders.documentsLibrary.createFileAsync(
  'sample.dat', Windows.Storage.CreationCollisionOption.replaceExisting)
  .done(

      console.log('ok');
      uwp.close(); // all async operations are completed, release uwp 
    },
    function (error) {
      console.error('error', error);
      uwp.close(); // all async operations are completed, release uwp 
    }

Installation

Prerequisites

Run under Node.js (Chakra) command prompt:

npm install uwp

APIs

This package exports 2 functions.

projectNamespace(name)

Project a UWP namespace of given name.

  • Note: This function will keep Node process alive so that your app can continue to run and handle UWP async callbacks. You need to call close() when UWP usage is completed.

### close()

Close all UWP handles used by this package. Call this when all UWP usage is completed.


Checkout our OSS effort with Node-ChakraCore. It supports the most recent version of node.js and will also be useful if you are on Windows 7 or Windows 8.1. Note: It does not support UWP.
