  • options - Object

         root:        'string' // root of search
         requireExts: array    // Optional - only return files which match extensions contained in array
         ignoreDirs:  array    // Optional - don't include directories contained in array
  • callback - Function - the callback is passed one argument which is an array of objects as below

         name: fileName,
         filepath: absolute path of the file including filename
