If you are new to Nodejs , you may not know how to use file module completely. I hope this article may help you to find out ways to create better application with Nodejs.
Today ,I am going to show you how we can go back file directory in nodejs . Now ,we will log in console to know where we are running ,using
console.log(__dirname);//current directory where we open this folder.
Now, we get our current directory but you are trying to move your directory one step back.You must use nodejs built in module
path to work with directories. The method
path.join() execute several segments into one path.
const path=require('path'); let oneStepBack=path.join(__dirname,'../'); console.log(oneStepBack);//move one step back from current directory
If you want to move two step backward from current working directory, the code will be like this...
const path=require('path'); let twoStepBack=path.join(__dirname,'../../'); console.log(twoStepBack);//move two step back from current directory
