temp-dir

Get the real path of the system temp directory

The os.tmpdir() built-in doesn't return the real path. That can cause problems when the returned path is a symlink, which is the case on macOS. Use this module to get the resolved path.

Install

npm install temp-dir

Usage

import temporaryDirectory from 'temp-dir';

console.log(temporaryDirectory);
//=> '/private/var/folders/3x/jf5977fn79jbglr7rk0tq4d00000gn/T'
import os from 'node:os';

console.log(os.tmpdir());
//=> '/var/folders/3x/jf5977fn79jbglr7rk0tq4d00000gn/T' // <= Symlink
