klaw-sync is a Node.js recursive and fast file system walker, which is the synchronous counterpart of klaw. It lists all files and directories inside a directory recursively and returns an array of objects that each object has two properties: path and stats. path is the full path of the file or directory and stats is an instance of fs.Stats.

Install

npm i klaw-sync

Usage

klawSync(directory[, options])

  • directory <String>
  • options <Object> (optional) all options are false by default
    • nodir <Boolean>
      • return only files (ignore directories).
    • nofile <Boolean>
      • return only directories (ignore files).
    • depthLimit: <Number>
      • the number of times to recurse before stopping. -1 for unlimited.
    • fs: <Object>
      • custom fs, useful when mocking fs object.
    • filter <Function>
      • function that gets one argument fn({path: '', stats: {}}) and returns true to include or false to exclude the item.
    • traverseAll <Boolean>
      • traverse all subdirectories, regardless of filter option. (When set to true, traverseAll produces similar behavior to the default behavior prior to v4.0.0. The current default of traverseAll: false is equivalent to the old noRecurseOnFailedFilter: true).
  • Return: <Array<Object>> [{path: '', stats: {}}]

Examples

const klawSync = require('klaw-sync')

const paths = klawSync('/some/dir')
// paths = [{path: '/some/dir/dir1', stats: {}}, {path: '/some/dir/file1', stats: {}}]

catch error

const klawSync = require('klaw-sync')

let paths
try {
  paths = klawSync('/some/dir')
} catch (er) {
  console.error(er)
}
console.dir(paths)

files only

const klawSync = require('klaw-sync')

const files = klawSync('/some/dir', {nodir: true})
// files = [{path: '/some/dir/file1', stats: {}}, {path: '/some/dir/file2', stats: {}}]

directories only

const klawSync = require('klaw-sync')

const dirs = klawSync('/some/dir', {nofile: true})
// dirs = [{path: '/some/dir/dir1', stats: {}}, {path: '/some/dir/dir2', stats: {}}]

ignore hidden directories

const path = require('path')
const klawSync = require('klaw-sync')

const filterFn = item => {
  const basename = path.basename(item.path)
  return basename === '.' || basename[0] !== '.'
}

const paths = klawSync('/some/dir', { filter: filterFn})

filter based on stats

Here traverseAll option is required since we still want to read all directories even if they don’t pass the filter function, to see if their contents do pass the filter function.

const klawSync = require('klaw-sync')

const refTime = new Date(2017, 3, 24).getTime()
const filterFn = item => item.stats.mtime.getTime() > refTime

const paths = klawSync('/some/dir', { filter: filterFn })
