dive

a tiny module for node that is able to recursively walk (“dive”) a directory tree. There’s also an synchronous version of dive called diveSync.

dive(directory[, options], action[, complete]);
  • directory is the pathname of a readable directory.
  • options [optional] is an object that defines some of the properties.

    The default options are as follows:

    {
      recursive: true,    // - If set to false, this will ignore subdirectories.
      all: false,         // - If set to true, this will show "dot files" and
                          //   files in "dot directories", e.g. ".gitignore" or
                          //  ".git/HEAD".
      directories: false  // - If set to true, this will call `action` on
                          //   directories, too.
      files: true         // - If set to false, this won't call `action` on
                          //   files any more.
    }
    
  • action is passed two arguments (err, file) where err is an error or null and file is the pathname of a file.
  • complete [optional] may define a second callback, that is called, when all files have been processed. It takes no arguments.

Installation

npm install dive

Usage

Default:

var dive = require('dive');

dive(process.cwd(), function(err, file) {

});

All files and a callback in the end:

var dive = require('dive');

dive(process.cwd(), { all: true }, function(err, file) {
  if (err) throw err;
  console.log(file);
}, function() {
  console.log('complete');
});

Directories only:

var dive = require('dive');

dive(process.cwd(), { directories: true, files: false }, function(err, dir) {
  if (err) throw err;
  console.log(dir);
});
