Build Status

temporary - The lord of tmp.

Intro

Temporary provides an easy way to create temporary files and directories. It will create a temporary file/directory with a unique name.

Features

  • Generates unique name.
  • Auto-discovers tmp dir.

Installation

$ npm install temporary

Usage

var tmp = require('temporary');
var file = new tmp.File();
var dir = new tmp.Dir();

console.log(file.path); // path.
console.log(dir.path); // path.

file.unlink();
dir.rmdir();

Custom path

If you want to manually specify the directory name, you can do so by setting the generator option to false.

var tmp = require('temporary');

var dir = new tmp.Dir('foobar', { generator: false });

console.log(dir.path) // prints 'foobar'

Custom generator

Generators allow you to specify how the directory or file names get generated.

var tmp = require('temporary');

var dir = new tmp.Dir('foobar', { generator: function() {} });
