Node.js Copy a Folder With Node fs-extra package


In this blog post, We learn how can you copy a directory or folder (which contains some files) to another location in Node.js. To do this here we are going to use a third-party library named as fs-extra.

fs-extra adds file system methods that aren’t included in the core fs module and adds promise support to the fs methods. It also uses graceful-fs to prevent EMFILE errors. It should be a drop in replacement for fs.

Installation of fs-extra package

To Install fs-extra package via NPM (Node Package Manager), run the following command in Terminal or command prompt:

npm install fs-extra

Let’s use fs-extra package to copy a directory in Node.js

// import fs-extra package
let fs = require("fs-extra");
// copy source folder to destination
fs.copy("source_folder", "destination_folder", function (err) {
    if (err){
        console.log('An error has beedn occured while copying the folder.')
    console.log('Copying completed!')


Here we have learnt how to use fs-extra module to copy folder or directory in Node.js.
