Interface FileSystem

The file system interface exposes the editor's built-in and contributed file system providers. It allows extensions to work with files from the local disk as well as files from remote places, like the remote extension host or ftp-servers.

Note that an instance of this interface is available as workspace.fs.

stat

  • Retrieve metadata about a file.

    Parameters

    • uri: Uri

      The uri of the file to retrieve metadata about.

    Returns Thenable<FileStat>

    The file metadata about the file.

readDirectory

createDirectory

  • Create a new directory (Note, that new files are created via write-calls).

    Note that missing directories are created automatically, e.g this call has mkdirp semantics.

    Parameters

    • uri: Uri

      The uri of the new folder.

    Returns Thenable<void>

readFile

  • Read the entire contents of a file.

    Parameters

    • uri: Uri

      The uri of the file.

    Returns Thenable<Uint8Array>

    An array of bytes or a thenable that resolves to such.

writeFile

  • writeFile(uri: Uri, content: Uint8Array): Thenable<void>
  • Write data to a file, replacing its entire contents.

    Parameters

    • uri: Uri

      The uri of the file.

    • content: Uint8Array

      The new content of the file.

    Returns Thenable<void>

delete

  • delete(uri: Uri, options?: { recursive?: boolean; useTrash?: boolean }): Thenable<void>
  • Delete a file.

    Parameters

    • uri: Uri

      The resource that is to be deleted.

    • Optional options: { recursive?: boolean; useTrash?: boolean }

      Defines if trash can should be used and if deletion of folders is recursive

      • Optional recursive?: boolean
      • Optional useTrash?: boolean

    Returns Thenable<void>

rename

  • rename(source: Uri, target: Uri, options?: { overwrite?: boolean }): Thenable<void>
  • Rename a file or folder.

    Parameters

    • source: Uri

      The existing file.

    • target: Uri

      The new location.

    • Optional options: { overwrite?: boolean }

      Defines if existing files should be overwritten.

      • Optional overwrite?: boolean

    Returns Thenable<void>

copy

  • copy(source: Uri, target: Uri, options?: { overwrite?: boolean }): Thenable<void>
  • Copy files or folders.

    Parameters

    • source: Uri

      The existing file.

    • target: Uri

      The destination location.

    • Optional options: { overwrite?: boolean }

      Defines if existing files should be overwritten.

      • Optional overwrite?: boolean

    Returns Thenable<void>

isWritableFileSystem

  • isWritableFileSystem(scheme: string): undefined | boolean
  • Check if a given file system supports writing files.

    Keep in mind that just because a file system supports writing, that does not mean that writes will always succeed. There may be permissions issues or other errors that prevent writing a file.

    Parameters

    • scheme: string

      The scheme of the filesystem, for example file or git.

    Returns undefined | boolean

    true if the file system supports writing, false if it does not support writing (i.e. it is readonly), and undefined if the editor does not know about the filesystem.
