In this article, we would like to show you how to get a relative path from one location to anotherĀ inĀ Node.js.

1. ImportĀ pathĀ module using:

const path = require('path');

2. UseĀ path.relative()Ā method to get the relative path from from to to based on the current working directory.

Relative path to file:

const path = require('path');

// example paths
const from = 'projects\\app\\src';
const to = 'projects\\app\\resources\\background.png';

const result = path.relative(from, to);

console.log(result); // ..\resources\background.png

Output:

..\resources\background.png

Note:

Thanks to the path we got, we are able to access the background.png file in the src folder.

Relative path to directory:

const path = require('path');

// example paths
const from = 'projects\\app\\src';
const to = 'projects\\app\\resources';

const result = path.relative(from, to);

console.log(result); // ..\resources

Output:

..\resources

Note:

Thanks to the path we got, we are able to access the resources directory in the src folder.
