node-xattr is a native module wrapping xattr to read and set extended attributes on files.


node-waf configure && node-waf build && node-waf install


var xattr = require("xattr");

Get all the extended attributes on a file, returns obj

var attrs = xattr.glist("/path/to/file");

Get just the extended attribute names on a file, returns array obj

var attrs = xattr.list("/path/to/file");

Set an extended attribute on a file. Note at thie moment you can only set string values.

xattr.set("/path/to/file", "someAttribute", "someValue");

Remove xattr on a file, returns bool

xattr.remove("/path/to/file", "user.attribute");
