fake-fs

Fake node.js file system for testing. Supports stat, exists, readdir, readFile, writeFile, mkdir and their sync counterparts. Perhaps a bit more will be added in future.

Usage

var Fs = require('fake-fs')
var fs = new Fs

Define a dir

fs.dir('a/b/c')
fs.existsSync('a/b/c').should.be.true
fs.existsSync('a').should.be.true // note that it works like mkdir -p
fs.existsSync('.').should.be.true // in fact you defined an item at absolute path
fs.existsSync(process.cwd()).should.be.true

Dir with some meta

fs.dir('bin', {
  mtime: 100, // by default it will be set to (new Date)
  atime: 300,
  ctime: 50
})
fs.statSync('bin').should.have.property('mtime').equal(100)

Define an empty file

fs.file('foo/bar.txt')
fs.readFileSync('foo/bar.txt', 'utf8').should.equal('')
fs.statSync('foo').isDirectory().should.be.true // foo automatically created

Define a file with content

fs.file('hello.txt', 'Hello world') // utf8 assumed
fs.file('base64.txt', 'TWFu', 'base64')
fs.file('bin', new Buffer([10, 20]))

Define a file with arbitrary attributes

fs.file('file', {
  content: 'asdf',
  mtime: new Date,
  hello: 'hello'
})

fs.readFileSync('file', 'utf8').should.equal('asdf')
fs.statSync('file').should.have.property('hello').equal('hello')

Sometimes you may want to define several items at one location. The .at(path) returns a proxy which prefixes everything you defined with path.

fs.at('public/assets')
  .file('style.css')
  .file('icons.png')
fs.existsSync('public/assets/icons.png').should.be.true

It also has convenience methods for patching-unpatching of global fs object.

fs.patch()
fs.dir('foo')
require('fs').existsSync('foo').should.be.true
fs.unpatch()
require('fs').existsSync('foo').should.be.false
