walker Build Status

A nodejs directory walker. Broadcasts events for various file types as well as a generic "entry" event for all types and provides the ability to prune directory trees. This shows the entire API; everything is optional:

Walker('/etc/') .filterDir(function(dir, stat) { if (dir === '/etc/pam.d') { console.warn('Skipping /etc/pam.d and children') return false } return true }) .on('entry', function(entry, stat) { console.log('Got entry: ' + entry) }) .on('dir', function(dir, stat) { console.log('Got directory: ' + dir) }) .on('file', function(file, stat) { console.log('Got file: ' + file) }) .on('symlink', function(symlink, stat) { console.log('Got symlink: ' + symlink) }) .on('blockDevice', function(blockDevice, stat) { console.log('Got blockDevice: ' + blockDevice) }) .on('fifo', function(fifo, stat) { console.log('Got fifo: ' + fifo) }) .on('socket', function(socket, stat) { console.log('Got socket: ' + socket) }) .on('characterDevice', function(characterDevice, stat) { console.log('Got characterDevice: ' + characterDevice) }) .on('error', function(er, entry, stat) { console.log('Got error ' + er + ' on entry ' + entry) }) .on('end', function() { console.log('All files traversed.') })

You specify a root directory to walk and optionally specify a function to prune sub-directory trees via the filterDir function. The Walker exposes a number of events, broadcasting various file type events a generic error event and finally the event to signal the end of the process.
