move-file

Move a file

The built-in fs.rename() is just a JavaScript wrapper for the C rename(2) function, which doesn't support moving files across partitions or devices. This module is what you would have expected fs.rename() to be.

Highlights

  • Promise API.
  • Supports moving a file across partitions and devices.
  • Optionally prevent overwriting an existing file.
  • Creates non-existent destination directories for you.

Install

$ npm install move-file

Usage

const moveFile = require('move-file');

(async () => {
	await moveFile('source/unicorn.png', 'destination/unicorn.png');
	console.log('The file has been moved');
})();

API

moveFile(source, destination, options?)

Returns a Promise that resolves when the file has been moved.

moveFile.sync(source, destination, options?)

source

Type: string

File you want to move.

destination

Type: string

Where you want the file moved.

options
