    # Using npm, installing globally for global cli usage 
    npm i -g replace-js-file
     
    # Using yarn 
    yarn add replace-js-file

    Basic usage

    //Load the library
    const replace = require('replace-js-file');
    var path = require("path");
    var file = path.join(__dirname,'<FILE_PATH>');
     
    var find = {
        "email": {
          "type": "String",
          "unique": true,
          "required": true
        },
        "password": "String"
    };
     
    var input = {
        "email": {"type":"String","unique":true,"required": true},
        "password": "String",
        "usergroup": {
          "type": "ObjectId",
          "ref": "group",
          "required": true
        }
    };
     
    replace(file,find,input,function(err,file_path){
       console.log("path: ",file_path); 
    });
     

    Asynchronous replacement with promises

     
    replace(file,find,input)
    .then(response => {
        console.log(response.message);
    }, err => {
        console.log(err.message);
    });
     

    Replacement and copy to another file

     
    var file_output = path.join(__dirname,'<FILE_PATH>');
    replace(file,find,input,file_output,function(err,file_path){
       console.log("path: ",file_path); 
    });
     

    Asynchronous replacement with promises and copy to another file

     
    var file_output = path.join(__dirname,'<FILE_PATH>');
     
    replace(file,find,input,file_output)
    .then(response => {
        console.log(response.message);
    }, err => {
        console.log(err.message);
    });
        
     

    Return Values

    When it is a promise, it returns an object with the answer, in it there are two variables, success and message.

    success Initiates that everything is successful and message details the result of the operation.

    When callback is used, two parameters are returned, the first is an error and the second the path of the created or modified file.
