node-gettemporaryfilepath

Generate file names for temporary files:

var getTemporaryFilePath = require('gettemporaryfilepath');

getTemporaryFilePath(); // "/tmp/112116-2662-18u8bl8"
getTemporaryFilePath(); // "/tmp/112116-2662-1inp07r"

Creating and cleaning up the temporary files is your own responsibility.

Custom suffixes and prefixes are supported using the same syntax as a href="https://github.com/bruce/node-temp#affixes"node-temp (from which most of the code was taken):

getTemporaryFilePath({suffix: '.png'}); // "/tmp/112116-2662-125a83d.png"
getTemporaryFilePath({prefix: 'foo-'}); // "/tmp/foo-112116-2662-avhu28"

Installation

Make sure you have node.js and npm installed, then run:
