Package description

What is chownr?

The chownr npm package is a Node.js module that allows you to recursively change the owner and group of a file or directory tree. It is a simple utility that operates similarly to the Unix 'chown -R' command, but it is implemented in Node.js for use within scripts or Node.js applications.

What are chownr's main functionalities?

Recursively change owner

This feature allows you to change the owner of a directory and all its subdirectories and files to the specified user ID (uid) and group ID (gid).

const chownr = require('chownr');

chownr('/path/to/dir', uid, gid, (err) => {
  if (err) throw err;
  console.log('Changed ownership recursively!');
});
