Node.js - create directory using path

In this article, we would like to show you how to create directory / folder using fs.mkdirSync method in Node.js.

Quick solution:

const fs = require('fs');

const directoryPath = './newFolder';

if (!fs.existsSync(directoryPath)) {
    fs.mkdirSync(directoryPath);
}

 

Practical example

In this example, we create a new folder under the given path.

const fs = require('fs');

const directoryPath = './newFolder';

if (!fs.existsSync(directoryPath)) {
	fs.mkdirSync(directoryPath);
} else {
    console.log('File or directory already exist!');
}

Recursive version

if we want to create folders that are nested, we have to set the recursive flag in the mkdirSync() method.

const fs = require('fs');

const directoryPath = 'C:/projects/example/newFolder';

if (!fs.existsSync(directoryPath)) {
    fs.mkdirSync(directoryPath, { recursive: true });
} else {
    console.log('File or directory already exist!');
}

Result:
