Package description

What is path-browserify?

The path-browserify npm package is a version of Node.js core path module for the browser. It provides utilities for working with file and directory paths, allowing you to perform operations such as normalization, joining, and resolving paths in a way that is compatible with browser environments.

What are path-browserify's main functionalities?

Normalization

Normalize a string path, taking care of '..' and '.' parts and multiple slashes.

const path = require('path-browserify');
const normalizedPath = path.normalize('/foo/bar//baz/asdf/quux/..');

Joining Paths

Join all arguments together and normalize the resulting path.

const path = require('path-browserify');
const joinedPath = path.join('/foo', 'bar', 'baz/asdf', 'quux', '..');

Resolving Paths

Resolve a sequence of paths or path segments into an absolute path.

const path = require('path-browserify');
const resolvedPath = path.resolve('foo/bar', '/tmp/file/', '..', 'a/../subfile');

Basename

Get the last portion of a path, similar to the Unix basename command.

const path = require('path-browserify');
const base = path.basename('/foo/bar/baz/asdf/quux.html');

Extension Name

Return the extension of the path, from the last occurrence of the '.' (period) character to end of string in the last portion of the path.

const path = require('path-browserify');
const ext = path.extname('index.html');

Directory Name

Return the directory name of a path, similar to the Unix dirname command.

const path = require('path-browserify');
const dir = path.dirname('/foo/bar/baz/asdf/quux');

path-browserify Build Status

The path module from Node.js for browsers

This implements the Node.js path module for environments that do not have it, like browsers.

path-browserify currently matches the Node.js 10.3 API.

Install

You usually do not have to install path-browserify yourself! If your code runs in Node.js, path is built in. If your code runs in the browser, bundlers like browserify or webpack include the path-browserify module by default.

But if none of those apply, with npm do:

npm install path-browserify

Usage

var path = require('path')

var filename = 'logo.png';
var logo = path.join('./assets/img', filename);
document.querySelector('#logo').src = logo;

API

See the Node.js path docs. path-browserify currently matches the Node.js 10.3 API. path-browserify only implements the POSIX functions, not the win32 ones.

Contributing

PRs are very welcome! The main way to contribute to path-browserify is by porting features, bugfixes and tests from Node.js. Ideally, code contributions to this module are copy-pasted from Node.js and transpiled to ES5, rather than reimplemented from scratch. Matching the Node.js code as closely as possible makes maintenance simpler when new changes land in Node.js. This module intends to provide exactly the same API as Node.js, so features that are not available in the core path module will not be accepted. Feature requests should instead be directed at nodejs/node and will be added to this module once they are implemented in Node.js.

If there is a difference in behaviour between Node.js's path module and this module, please open an issue!
