node-fs-extra - Node.js: extra methods for the fs object like copy(), remove(), mkdirs()

  •        6

fs-extra adds file system methods that aren't included in the native fs module and adds promise support to the fs methods. It should be a drop in replacement for fs.I got tired of including mkdirp, rimraf, and ncp in most of my projects.


graceful-fs : ^4.1.2
jsonfile : ^4.0.0
universalify : ^0.1.0

wrench-js - Recursive file operations in Node.js

  •    Javascript

wrench.js is deprecated, and hasn't been updated in quite some time. I heavily recommend using fs-extra to do any extra filesystem operations. Wrench was built for the early days of Node, and it solved a problem that needed solving. I'm proud of what it's done; at the time of writing this, it was still downloaded over 25,000 times yesterday, and over 500,000 times in the last month. The fact that it wound up being embedded in so many projects is humbling and a great source of fun for me, but I just don't have the time to keep up with this at the moment. No alternate maintainers have appeared, and fs-extra is very well maintained anyway - one community solution is likely better.

vinyl-fs - Vinyl adapter for the file system.

  •    Javascript

Vinyl adapter for the file system. Vinyl is a very simple metadata object that describes a file. When you think of a file, two attributes come to mind: path and contents. These are the main attributes on a Vinyl object. A file does not necessarily represent something on your computer’s file system. You have files on S3, FTP, Dropbox, Box, and other services. Vinyl can be used to describe files from all of these sources.

mock-fs - Configurable mock for the fs module

  •    Javascript

The mock-fs module allows Node's built-in fs module to be backed temporarily by an in-memory, mock file system. This lets you run tests against a set of mock files and directories instead of lugging around a bunch of test fixtures. The code below makes it so the fs module is temporarily backed by a mock file system with a few files and directories.

pyfilesystem2 - Python's Filesystem abstraction layer

BrowserFS - BrowserFS is an in-browser filesystem that emulates the Node JS filesystem API and supports storing and retrieving files from various backends

  •    Javascript

BrowserFS is an in-browser file system that emulates the Node JS file system API and supports storing and retrieving files from various backends. BrowserFS also integrates nicely into the Emscripten file system. More backends can be defined by separate libraries, so long as they extend the BaseFileSystem class. Multiple backends can be active at once at different locations in the directory hierarchy.

  •    Javascript

zbox - Zero-details, privacy-focused embeddable file system.

  •    Rust

Zbox is a zero-details, privacy-focused embeddable file system. Its goal is to help application store files securely, privately and reliably. By encapsulating files and directories into an encrypted repository, it provides a virtual file system and exclusive access to authorised application. Unlike other system-level file systems, such as ext4, XFS and Btrfs, which provide shared access to multiple processes, Zbox is a file system that runs in the same memory space as the application. It only provides access to one process at a time.

TFS is a modular, fast, and feature rich next-gen file system, employing modern techniques for high performance, high space efficiency, and high scalability. TFS was created out of the need for a modern file system for Redox OS, as a replacement for ZFS, which proved to be slow to implement because of its monolithic design.
