tmpdir

retrieve temporary directory path

Installation

Add this line to your application's Gemfile:

gem 'tmpdir'

And then execute:

$ bundle install

Or install it yourself as:

$ gem install tmpdir

Usage

Dir.mktmpdir creates a temporary directory. The directory is created with 0700 permission.

Application should not change the permission to make the temporary directory accessible from other users.

The prefix and suffix of the name of the directory is specified by the optional first argument, prefix_suffix.

  • If it is not specified or nil, "d" is used as the prefix and no suffix is used.
  • If it is a string, it is used as the prefix and no suffix is used.
  • If it is an array, first element is used as the prefix and second element is used as a suffix.
Dir.mktmpdir {|dir| dir is ".../d..." }
Dir.mktmpdir("foo") {|dir| dir is ".../foo..." }
Dir.mktmpdir(["foo", "bar"]) {|dir| dir is ".../foo...bar" }

The directory is created under Dir.tmpdir or the optional second argument tmpdir if non-nil value is given.

Dir.mktmpdir {|dir| dir is "#{Dir.tmpdir}/d..." }
Dir.mktmpdir(nil, "/var/tmp") {|dir| dir is "/var/tmp/d..." }

Development

After checking out the repo, run bin/setup to install dependencies. Then, run rake test to run the tests. You can also run bin/console for an interactive prompt that will allow you to experiment.

To install this gem onto your local machine, run bundle exec rake install. To release a new version, update the version number in version.rb, and then run bundle exec rake release, which will create a git tag for the version, push git commits and tags, and push the .gem file to rubygems.org.
