How to append to New Line in Node js

0 votes

I'm trying to Append data to a Log file using Node.js and that is working fine but it is not going to the next line. \n doesn't seem to be working in my function below. Any suggestions?

function processInput ( text ) 
{     
  fs.open('H://log.txt', 'a', 666, function( e, id ) {
   fs.write( id, text + "\n", null, 'utf8', function(){
    fs.close(id, function(){
     console.log('file is updated');
    });
   });
  });
 }

Hello @kartik,

you're running this on Windows (given your H://log.txt file path).

Try using \r\n instead of just \n.

\n is fine; you're probably viewing the log file in notepad or something else that doesn't render non-Windows newlines. Try opening it in a different viewer/editor (e.g. Wordpad).

Hope it helps!!
Thank You!!
