Basic utility methods for transforming and handling file paths. As with node.js, the file system is not consulted to check whether paths are valid.
Install the module with:
npm install node-name
var name = require('node-name');
console.log(name.basename('foo/bar/baz.quux')); // => baz
name.dir('path/to/transform.txt'); name.file('path/to/transform.txt'); name.filename('path/to/transform.txt'); name.base('path/to/transform.txt'); name.basename('path/to/transform.txt'); name.ext('path/to/transform.txt');
After I started paying attention to how the Node.js path module handles and transforms file paths (
path.extname, etc.), I was surprised at the results. Not that I should have been, but when utilities like this are so easy to use, I sometimes forget that I still need to look at what's happening under the hood.
Currently, this module just makes it a tiny bit more convenient to see how paths are transformed by these utilities. But over time my goal is to build out this library to include more robust utilities.
