How nodejs get file name from absolute path

0 votes
If there any API could retrieve file name from an absolute file path?

e.g. "foo.txt" from "/var/www/foo.txt"

I know it works with string operation, like fullpath.replace(/.+\//, '') but I want to know is there a more 'formal' way, like file.getName() in java, could do it.

NodeJS get file name from absolute path?

Hello @kartik,

Use the basename method of the path module:

path.basename('/foo/bar/baz/asdf/quux.html')
// returns
'quux.html'

If you also want to remove the extension: path.basename(fpath, path.extname(fpath)) 

Hope it helps!!

Thank you!!
