How do I determine the current operating system with Node js

0 votes
I'm writing a couple of node shell scripts for use when developing on a platform. We have both Mac and Windows developers. Is there a variable I can check for in Node to run a .sh file in one instance and .bat in another?

Hello @kartik,

With Node.js v6 (and above) there is a dedicated os module, which provides a number of operating system-related utility methods.

On my Windows 10 machine it reports the following:

var os = require('os');

console.log(os.type()); // "Windows_NT"
console.log(os.release()); // "10.0.14393"
console.log(os.platform()); // "win32"

Hope this is helpfull!!

Thank you!
