blocks%20(22)

Returns true if file or folder exists else false


blocks

Returns files list from given directory (if it exists) .Use file extension as filter like mp3,txt,etc.If you don’t want to use filter then use empty string.Also if don’t want to get subdirectories then set ‘withFolders’ to false else true.If recursive is set to true then it will also get files from subdirectories recursively.
