Hi,

Want to create a folder in the tmp location, How can we create it? javascript or any other way to create the folder?. And after creating the folder want to push some exported packages in that folder and then zip the folder.

Hi,

you can use the standard linux API:

var folder = execCommand('mktemp -d', true); // [0, "/tmp/tmp.0351385kt "]

folder = folder[1].trim(); // remove any whitespace

logInfo('folder '+folder);

execCommand('touch '+folder+'/myfile1', true); // create some files in the folder

execCommand('touch '+folder+'/myfile2', true);

var zip = execCommand('zip '+folder+'/myzip.zip '+folder); // [0, ""]

logInfo(zip[1]);

var ls = execCommand('ls -alh '+folder); // [0, "myfile1 myfile2 myzip.zip"]

logInfo(ls[1]);

Reference:

- Linux zip https://linux.die.net/man/1/zip

- Linux mktemp https://linux.die.net/man/1/mktemp

- ACC execCommand
