Node-Red nodes that work with the host filing system.


  • file-lister - List all files in a given starting folder optionally with a filename filter pattern. Also has options for file details and sub-folder recursion.
  • file-copier - In progress. Simple node to copy files (optionally with wildcard specifications).


Run the following command in the root directory of your Node-RED install

npm install node-red-contrib-fs

While in development, install with:

npm install


  • 0.0.9 - Initial release - File lister. 2016-06-14
  • 1.0.0 - Reworked File lister, more options. 2016-06-14
  • 1.0.1 - Fix from Andreas Brain correcting URLs in package.json. 2016-06-22

#Depends On

#To Do

  • Add additional input overrides to file lister
  • Additional nodes: Create/Move/Delete file/folder

If you have other ideas for filing system related nodes, please raise an issue.
