Node Filewalker

Fast and rock-solid asynchronous traversing of directories and files for node.js

Build Status

The filewalker-module for node is designed to provide maximum
reliance paired with maximum throughput/performance and the
ability to throttle that throughput/performance.

Installation

npm install filewalker

Run the tests

$ npm test

Usage

Simple directory listing and disk-usage report:

var filewalker = require('filewalker');

filewalker('.')
  .on('dir', function(p) {
    console.log('dir:  %s', p);
  })
  .on('file', function(p, s) {
    console.log('file: %s, %d bytes', p, s.size);
  })
  .on('error', function(err) {
    console.error(err);
  })
  .on('done', function() {
    console.log('%d dirs, %d files, %d bytes', this.dirs, this.files, this.bytes);
  })
.walk();

Calculate md5-hash for every file:

var started = Date.now();

var createHash = require('crypto').createHash,
    filewalker = require('./lib/filewalker');

var options = {
  maxPending: 10, // throttle handles
};

filewalker('/', options)
  .on('stream', function(rs, p, s, fullPath) {
    var hash = createHash('md5');
    rs.on('data', function(data) {
      hash.update(data);
    });
    rs.on('end', function(data) {
      console.log(hash.digest('hex'), ('                '+s.size).slice(-16), p);
    });
  })
  .on('error', function(err) {
    console.error(err);
  })
  .on('done', function() {
    var duration = Date.now()-started;
    console.log('%d ms', duration);
    console.log('%d dirs, %d files, %d bytes', this.dirs, this.files, this.bytes);
  })
.walk();

Class Filewalker

Inherits from node-fqueue

Options

maxPending (default: -1)
Maximum asynchronous jobs.
Useful to throttle the number of simultaneous disk-operations.

maxAttempts (default: 3)
Maximum reattempts on error.
Set to 0 to disable reattempts.
Set to -1 for infinite reattempts.

attemptTimeout (default: 5000 ms)
Minimum time to wait before reattempt. In milliseconds.
Useful to let network-drives remount, etc.

matchRegExp (default: null)
A RegExp-instance the path to a file must match in order to
emit a "file" event. Set to null to emit all paths.

recursive (default: true)
Traverse in a recursive manner.
In case you wish to target only the current directory,
disable this.

Events

  • file
    • relative path
    • fs.Stats instance
    • absolute path
  • dir
    • relative path
    • fs.Stats instance
    • absolute path
  • stream
    • fs.ReadStream instance
    • relative path
    • fs.Stats instance
    • absolute path
  • pause
  • resume
  • done
  • error
    • instance of Error

Notice: There will be no fs.ReadStream created if no listener
listens to the 'stream'-event.
