Retrieving files from Directory Node Js


Question

I am using readDirSync to get the files from a Diretory. PLease find the code and error as following.

var fs = require('fs');
var files = fs.readdirSync('./application/models/');
for(var i in files) {
  var definition = require('../application/models/'+files[i]).Model;
  console.log('Model Loaded: ' + files[i]);
}

I am getting error for line number 2 . ENOENT, No such file or directory './application/models/' at Object.readdirSync (fs.js:376:18)

I have application/models on the same dir. I already checked for '/application/models/' and 'application/models/' but failed. I can see the same thing running on server.

Please help

Thanks

Accepted Answer

If you are using relative path when calling readdirSync, make sure it is relative to process.cwd(). However, "require" should be relative to the current script.

For example, given the following structure

server.js (node process)
/lib/importer.js (the current script)
/lib/application/models/

you may need to write importer.js as:

var fs = require('fs');
var files = fs.readdirSync('./lib/application/models/');
for (var i in files) {
  var definition = require('./application/models/' + files[i]).Model;
  console.log('Model Loaded: ' + files[i]);
}

Have you tried the following?

var files = fs.readdirSync(__dirname+'/application/models/');
