Build Status
xfs extends the following functions :

async functions

mkdir(path,cb) make directories and their contents recursively rmdir(path,cb) remove directories and their contents recursively rename(src,dest,cb) rename file across two different devices walk(dir, expr, each, done); walk through dir, each file will pass to each() , when walk done, done() called
// walk traverse through files in the dir one by one
// get only js files in dir
fs.walk(dir, /\.js$/, function (err, file, done) {
  // your code here

  // in the end , must call done()
}, function (err) {
  // your code

// function walk() can also accept an `function type` expr
fs.walk(dir, function (fpath) {
  // return bool, true means accept, false means ignore
  return true
}, function (err, file, done) {

}, function (err) {


// or you can save the done function

fs.walk(dir, /\.js$/, function (err, file){
  // your code here

sync functions

rm(path) mkdir(path) save(path, data, options|encoding)
var sync = xfs.sync();
// shell > rm -r path
// shell > mkdir -p path
// save file auto create dir if not exist
// node >= v0.10.0
sync.save(path, data, option); // when node >= v0.10.0, the last param is option
sync.save(path, data, encoding); // when node < v0.10.0, the last param is encoding
