A simple library that makes it easy to get the Application Data folder for the current operating system.
npm install app-data-folder
let appData = require('app-data-folder'); let applicationName = 'Storm'; let appDataPath = appData(applicationName); // returns a platform specific path to the default location for application data // e.g. // Windows: C:\\Users\\<User Name>\\AppData\\Roaming\\<application name> // MacOS: /Users/<User Name>/Library/Application Support/<application name> // linux: /home/<User Name>/.<application name>
I cringe at the thought of copying this code into each one of my apps. So I made it into a reusable library. Maybe a bit overkill but it makes me sleep better.
