Node.js | path.relative() Method
  • Last Updated : 28 Jan, 2020

The path.relative() method is used to find the relative path from a given path to another path based on the current working directory. If both the given paths are the same, it would resolve to a zero-length string.

Syntax:

path.relative( from, to )

Parameters: This method accept two parameters as mentioned above and described below:

  • from: It is the file path that would be used as base path.
  • to: It is the file path that would be used to find the relative path.

Return Value: It returns a string with the normalized form of the path.

Below program illustrates the path.relative() method in Node.js:



Example:




// Node.js program to demonstrate the    
// path.relative() method 
     
// Import the path module
const path = require('path');
   
path1 = path.relative("geeks/website", "geeks/index.html");
console.log(path1)
   
path2 = path.relative("users/admin", "admin/files/website");
console.log(path2)
   
// When both the paths are same
// It returns blank string
path3 = path.relative("users/admin", "users/admin");
console.log(path3)

Output:

..\index.html
..\..\admin\files\website
