TIL: Writing JSON to file with Nodejs pt1
Marking this entry as part one as I don’t have much time tonight to work on this. Today was a break for me. Lots of relaxing and doing other things outside of worring about work or other projects. Much needed.
Though I did sit down for a bit tonight to learn how to easily write JSON to a file using nodejs. This is very similar to the reading values in from a JSON file post that I made last week, only doing the reverse.
This again uses the
fs module to access the file system. All you need to do is to convert your object to a string using
JSON.stringify(), then write it into the file like shown below:
This will either create a new file named
sample.json if it doesn’t exist, or overwrite the existing with the object.
