Readme

Source

@npmcli/move-file

A fork of move-file with compatibility with all node 10.x versions.

Move a file (or directory)

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.
  • Support for Node versions that lack built-in recursive fs.mkdir()
  • Automatically recurses when source is a directory.

Install

$ npm install @npmcli/move-file

Usage

const moveFile = require('@npmcli/move-file');

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