emptyDir(dir, [callback])

Ensures that a directory is empty. Deletes directory contents if the directory is not empty. If the directory does not exist, it is created. The directory itself is not deleted.

Alias: emptydir()

  • dir <String>
  • callback <Function>

Example:

const fs = require('fs-extra')

// assume this directory has a lot of files and folders
// With a callback:
fs.emptyDir('/tmp/some/dir', err => {
  if (err) return console.error(err)

  console.log('success!')
})

// With Promises:
fs.emptyDir('/tmp/some/dir')
.then(() => {
  console.log('success!')
})
.catch(err => {
  console.error(err)
})

// With async/await:
async function example () {
  try {
    await fs.emptyDir('/tmp/some/dir')
    console.log('success!')
  } catch (err) {
    console.error(err)
  }
}
