Get operating system's default directory for temporary files with Node

08-01-2021 | #nodejs

Temporary files are useful when you process files but don't want to save them permanently. You may just use them to save the data of your application's session.

To know where the temporary files are saved in the operating system with Node, you can use the tmpdir() method of the os module.

os.tmpdir();
// C:\\Users\\phong\\AppData\\Local\\Temp

It doesn't accept any parameters and returns the path of the operating system's default directory for temporary files.
