Build Status

This is a node module for creating BagIt archives.

The goal of the project is to implement the complete BagIt 0.97 specification.

The BagIt specification has some optional metadata fields that can be present in the bag-info.txt file. These optional fields can be passed on the command line:

gladstone.createBagDirectory({ bagName: '/path/to/new/bag',
                               originDirectory: '/path/to/dir/to/bag',
                               cryptoMethod: 'sha256',
