Find vfiles by searching the file system downwards.


This package is ESM only: Node 12+ is needed to use it and it must be imported instead of required.


npm install vfile-find-down


var findDown = require('vfile-find-down')

findDown('.md', console.log)


null [ VFile {
  data: {},
  messages: [],
  history: [ '/Users/tilde/projects/oss/vfile-find-down/readme.md' ],
  cwd: '/Users/tilde/projects/oss/vfile-find-down' } ]


This package exports the following identifiers: findDown, findDownOne, INCLUDE, SKIP, BREAK. There is no default export.

findDown(tests[, paths][, callback])

Search for tests downwards. Calls callback with either an error or an array of files passing tests. Note: Virtual Files are not read (their contents is not populated).


Things to search for (string|Function|Array.<Tests>).

If an array is passed in, any test must match a given file for it to be included.

If a string is passed in, the basename or extname of files must match it for them to be included (and hidden directories and node_modules will not be searched).

Otherwise, they must be function.


Place(s) to searching from (Array.<string> or string, default: process.cwd()).


Function called with all matching files (function cb(err[, files])).

findDownOne(tests[, paths][, callback])

Like findDown, but either calls callback with the first found file or null, or returns a promise that resolved to a file or null.

function test(file, stats)

Check whether a virtual file should be included. Called with a vfile and a stats object.


The different flags can be combined by using the pipe operator: INCLUDE | SKIP.
