Delete files and folders using globs

Similar to rimraf, but with a Promise API and support for multiple files and globbing. It also protects you against deleting the current working directory and above.


????

Support this project and improve your JavaScript skills with this great ES6 course by Wes Bos.
Try his free JavaScript 30 course for a taste of what to expect. You might also like his React and Sublime course.


Install

$ npm install del

Usage

const del = require('del');

(async () => {
	const deletedPaths = await del(['tmp/*.js', '!tmp/unicorn.js']);

	console.log('Deleted files and folders:\n', deletedPaths.join('\n'));
})();

Beware

The glob pattern ** matches all children and the parent.

So this won't work:

del.sync(['public/assets/**', '!public/assets/goat.png']);

You have to explicitly ignore the parent directories too:

del.sync(['public/assets/**', '!public/assets', '!public/assets/goat.png']);

Suggestions on how to improve this welcome!
