findup-sync Build Status

Find the first file matching a given pattern in the current directory or the nearest ancestor directory.

Getting Started

Install the module with: npm install findup-sync

var findup = require('findup-sync');

// Start looking in the CWD.
var filepath1 = findup('{a,b}.txt');

// Start looking somewhere else, and ignore case (probably a good idea).
var filepath2 = findup('{a,b}.txt', {cwd: '/some/path', nocase: true});


findup(patternOrPatterns [, minimatchOptions])


Type: String or Array
Default: none

One or more wildcard glob patterns. Or just filenames.


Type: Object
Default: {}

Options to be passed to minimatch.

Note that if you want to start in a different directory than the current working directory, specify a cwd property here.


In lieu of a formal styleguide, take care to maintain the existing coding style. Add unit tests for any new or changed functionality. Lint and test your code using Grunt.
