env-paths Build Status

Get paths for storing things like data, config, cache, etc

Uses the correct OS-specific paths. Most developers get this wrong.

Install

$ npm install --save env-paths

Usage

const envPaths = require('env-paths');
const paths = envPaths('MyApp');

paths.data;
//=> '/home/sindresorhus/.local/share/MyApp-nodejs'

paths.config
//=> '/home/sindresorhus/.config/MyApp-nodejs'

API

paths = envPaths(name, [options])
