var File = require('vinyl');
 
var coffeeFile = new File({
  cwd: "/",
  base: "/test/",
  path: "/test/file.coffee",
  contents: new Buffer("test = 123")
});

Type: String
Default: process.cwd()

Used for relative pathing. Typically where a glob starts.

Type: String
Default: options.cwd

Full path to the file.

Type: String

The result of an fs.stat call. See fs.Stats for more information.

Type: fs.Stats
Default: null

File contents.

Type: Buffer, Stream, or null
Default: null

Returns true if file.contents is a Buffer.

Returns true if file.contents is a Stream.

Returns true if file.contents is null.

Returns a new File object with all attributes cloned. Custom attributes are deep-cloned.

If file.contents is a Buffer, it will write it to the stream.

If file.contents is a Stream, it will pipe it to the stream.

If file.contents is null, it will do nothing.

If opt.end is false, the destination stream will not be ended (same as node core).

Returns the stream.

Returns a pretty String interpretation of the File. Useful for console.log.

Returns path.relative for the file base and file path.

Example:

var file = new File({
  cwd: "/",
  base: "/test/",
  path: "/test/file.coffee"
});
 
console.log(file.relative); // file.coffee
