Introduction A symbolic link (also symlink or soft link) is a term for any file that contains a reference to another file or directory in the form of an absolute or relative path. Node.js built-in fs module provides APIs to create symlink. fs.symlink() method is used to create a symlink to the given path asynchronously. fs.symlinkSync() method is used to
Introduction: 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.
Introduction In this blog post, we will learn how to delete a folder programmatically in Node.js. Although there are a lot of other ways to delete folders in Node.js one common way is to use a system command. Node.js provides child_process module to execute shell commands. It is not advisable to use child_process module which
Introduction Opening a file is a common programming technique. Every web application does a file open operation. Whenever a file read or file write operation executes eventually it does a file open call as well. Without file open operation, reading and writing to a file are not possible. To open file in Node.js, We can
Introduction In this blog post, we will learn how to delete a file or symbolic link in Node.js. Node.js core fs module provides APIs to remove files or symlinks from the file system. fs.unlink() is used to asynchronously remove a file or symbolic link. fs.unlinkSync() is used to synchronously remove a file or symbolic link.
Introduction In this blog post, we will learn how to rename a file in Node.js using fs module. fs mdoule provides various synchronous and asynchronous APIs to rename files. Let’s get start. fs.rename() The fs.rename() is used to asynchronously rename a file at the given old path to provided new path. In the case that a new
Introduction: In this blog post, We will learn how to append contents to the end of the file instead of overwriting the file’s content. Sometimes it is necessary to keep the previous content of a file for debugging purposes. For example, if you are logging into a file then in this case you don’t want
The File System (FS) module of Node.js is a powerful tool for developers who need to manage files and directories in their applications. This module provides a way to create, read, write, and delete files and directories with a few lines of code. Furthermore, this module also provides ways to manipulate the data associated with
