dat-ignore

default ignore for dat

npm travis standard

Check if a file should be ignored for Dat:

  • Ignore .dat by default
  • Use the .datignore file
  • Optionally ignore all hidden files
  • Add in other custom ignore matches

Install

npm install dat-ignore

Usage

var datIgnore = require('dat-ignore')
var ignore = datIgnore('/data/dir')

console.log(ignore('.dat')) // true
console.log(ignore('.git')) // true
console.log(ignore('dat-data')) // false
console.log(ignore('cat.jpg')) // false

Uses anymatch to match file paths.

Example Options

Common configuration options.

Add custom ignore

var ignore = datIgnore('/data/dir', {
    ignore: [
      '**/node_modules/**', 
      'path/to/file.js',
      'path/anyjs/**/*.js'
    ]
  })

Allow Hidden Files

var ignore = datIgnore('/data/dir', { ignoreHidden: false })

Change Dat Ignore Path

var ignore = datIgnore('/data/dir', {
    datignorePath: '~/.datignore'
  })

.datignore as string/buffer

Pass in a string as a newline delimited list of things to ignore.

var datIgnoreFile = fs.readFileSync('~/.datignore')
datIgnoreFile += '\n' + fs.readFileSync(path.join(dir, '.datignore'))
datIgnoreFile += '\n' + fs.readFileSync(path.join(dir, '.gitignore'))

var ignore = datIgnore('/data/dir', { datignore: datIgnoreFile })

API

var ignore = datIgnore(dir, [opts])

Returns a function that checks if a path should be ignored:

ignore('.dat') // true
ignore('.git') // true
ignore('data/cats.csv') // false

dir

dir is the file root to compare to. It is also used to find .datignore, if not specified.

Options:

  • opts.ignore - Extend custom ignore with any anymatch string or array.
  • opts.useDatIgnore - Use the .datignore file in dir (default: true)
  • opts.ignoreHidden - Ignore all hidden files/folders (default: true)
  • opts.datignorePath - Path to .datignore file (default: dir/.datignore)
  • opts.datignore - Pass .datignore as buffer or string
