Node.js: path-extra

This module simply modifies the Node.js 'path' object with extra methods. It is a drop in replacement for the path module.

Installation

$ npm install path-extra

Usage

var path = require('path-extra');

You can still use all of the vanilla Node.js path methods.

Methods:

path.tempdir() //returns a temporary directory that is operating system specific.
path.homedir() //return the user's home directory
path.datadir()
