API

read

Asynchronously read a JSON or YAML file, automatically determining the reader based on extension.
Params
  • filepath {String}: path of the file to read.
  • options {Object|String}: to pass to js-yaml
  • cb {Function}: callback function
  • returns {Object}: JSON

Example
var read = require('read-data');

read('foo.json', function(err, data) {
  if (err) throw err;
  console.log(data);
});

read('foo.yml', function(err, data) {
  if (err) throw err;
  console.log(data);
});
