Node Archiver

Super simple Node utility to create a gzipped tar archive.

Install

npm install --save node-archiver

Usage

  var archiver = require('node-archiver');
  archiver(__dirname, './dist/my-archive.tar.gz');

You can pass an optional callback to archiver:

archiver(__dirname, './dist/my-archive.tar.gz', function(err) {
  if (err) { throw err; }
  // Done!
});

Create an archive in the dist/ directory of your project:

./node_modules/node-archiver/bin/create_dist

Adding the above line to your build process will create a distributable .tar.gz archive in the dist/ directory of your project. The name of the file will match the name attribute in your package.json.
