    The npm core package fs was used to copy a template from the pg-testdb-template install directory to the user's current directory:

    1. Create a read stream with var read = fs.createReadStream('template.js');
    2. Create a write stream with var write = fs.createWriteStream('copy.js');
    3. Pipe the read stream to the write stream read.pipe(write);


    npm i pg-testdb-template
