NPM

Example

Return the first file found in the specified directory with the specified name:

var findFileSync = require('find-file-sync');
var file = findFileSync(process.cwd(), 'file.js');

Find a file in a directory ignoring specific directories:

var findFileSync = require('find-file-sync');

// Exclude an array of directories or a single directory.
var packageJson = findFileSync(process.cwd(), 'package.json', [ 'node_modules', '.git' ]);
var main = findFileSync(process.cwd(), 'index.js', 'node_modules');

Find files from an array of possibilities. This will return the first of any of the files in the array:

var findFileSync = require('find-file-sync');

// Exclude an array of directories or a single directory.
var main = findFileSync(process.cwd(), ['index.js', 'app.js', 'server.js'], [ 'node_modules', '.git' ]);
