Package description

What is expand-tilde?

The expand-tilde npm package is designed to expand the tilde (~) in file paths to the user's home directory. This is particularly useful in Node.js applications where you might need to access or specify paths relative to the user's home directory in a platform-independent way.

What are expand-tilde's main functionalities?

Expand tilde to home directory

This feature allows the expansion of the tilde (~) to the current user's home directory. In the code sample, '~/example' is expanded to the full path, such as '/Users/username/example' on macOS or Linux, and 'C:\Users\username\example' on Windows.

const expandTilde = require('expand-tilde');
console.log(expandTilde('~/example'));
