Scan a directory

var path = require('path');
var fs = require('fs');

var dirPath = path.join(__dirname, 'files');

fs.readdir(dirPath, function (err, files) {
    if (err) {
        return console.log('Unable to scan dir ' + err);
    files.forEach(function (file) {
        // Do something with the file.

When using file systems writeFile function, a new file is created when the writeFile method is executed.

var path = require('path');
var fs = require('fs');

var filePath = path.join(__dirname, 'files', 'test.txt');

fs.writeFile(filePath, 'Write text to file, overwrite all.', function(err) {

    console.log('File was saved');

Node js read file

Path.join is used to create the file path. There is a directory "files" in the root of the project, where a "test.csv" file is stored. We handle file reading asynchronous.

Work with terminal input

var readline = require('readline');

 * We need to create a readline interface.
 * The interface takes 2 streams.
 * The input field points to the readable input stream
 * and the output field to the writable output stream. 
var rl = readline.createInterface({
    input: process.stdin,
    output: process.stdout

rl.question('Please tell me your name: ', function (name) {
    rl.question('Hello ' + name + ' how old are you: ', function (age) {
        // process.stdout.write('Well hello ' + answer);
