Convert Windows file paths to unix paths.


Install with npm:

$ npm install --save unixify

Install with yarn:

$ yarn add unixify


var unixify = require('unixify');
unixify(filepath[, stripTrailingSlash]);

Strips leading drive letters and dot-slash (./)

unixify('.\\one\\two\\three');  //=> 'one/two/three'
unixify('./one/two/three');     //=> 'one/two/three'
unixify('C:\\one\\two\\three'); //=> '/one/two/three'
unixify('\\one\\two\\three');   //=> '/one/two/three'

Normalizes path separators to forward slashes

unixify('one\\two\\three');      //=> 'one/two/three'
unixify('\\one\\two\\three');    //=> '/one/two/three'
unixify('C:\\one\\two\\three');  //=> '/one/two/three'

Combines multiple consecutive slashes

unixify('one//two//////three'),     //=> 'one/two/three'
unixify('\\one\\two\\//three');     //=> '/one/two/three'
unixify('C:\\//one\\two\\//three'); //=> '/one/two/three'

Strips trailing slashes by default

unixify('one//two//////three//'), //=> 'one/two/three'
unixify('C:\\one\\two\\three\\'); //=> '/one/two/three'

Keep trailing slashes

By passing false as the second argument

unixify('one//two//////three//'), //=> 'one/two/three/'
unixify('C:\\one\\two\\three\\'); //=> '/one/two/three/'
