is-path-inside

Usage

import isPathInside from 'is-path-inside';

isPathInside('a/b/c', 'a/b');

API

isPathInside(childPath, parentPath)

Note that relative paths are resolved against process.cwd() to make them absolute.

Important: This package is meant for use with path manipulation. It does not check if the paths exist nor does it resolve symlinks. You should not use this as a security mechanism to guard against access to certain places on the file system.

childPath

Type: string

The path that should be inside parentPath.

parentPath

Type: string
