Stop getting EMFILE errors! Open only as many files as the operating system supports.

Install

NPM

  • Install: npm install --save safefs
  • Module: require('safefs')

Editions

This package is published with the following editions:

  • safefs aliases safefs/index.js which uses Editions to automatically select the correct edition for the consumers environment
  • safefs/source/index.js is Source + ESNext + Require
  • safefs/es2015/index.js is Babel Compiled + ES2015 + Require

Older environments may need Babel's Polyfill or something similar.

Usage

var safefs = require('safefs')

SafeFS uses graceful-fs to wrap all of the standard file system methods to avoid EMFILE errors among other problems.

On-top of graceful-fs, SafeFS also adds additional wrapping on the following methods:

  • writeFile(path, data, options?, next) - ensure the full path exists before writing to it
  • appendFile(path, data, options?, next) - ensure the full path exists before writing to it
  • mkdir(path, mode?, next) - mode defaults to 0o777 & (~process.umask())
  • unlink(path, next) - checks if the file exists before removing it

SafeFS also define these additional methods:

  • ensurePath(path, options, next) - ensure the full path exists, equivalent to unix's mdir -p path
  • getParentPathSync(path) - returns the parent directory of the path
