Using Node PNP JS How to check whether a folder exists in a Document Library

Copper Contributor

There are lot of examples on the Internet about checking whether a folder exists using CSOM. I did a lot of searching but couldn't find a good article that talks about doing this using PNP JS. 


I would highly appreciate if anyone could give an Insight on how to approach this.

@Ricky Raghavan  hope this will help you., below code works for me.



public static getDocSetOrFolder(endPoint,listTitle,folerName):Promise<any>{
        let web = new Web(endPoint);
        const xml=this.returnCamlQueryToGetDocSetOrFolder(folerName);
        const q: CamlQuery = {
            ViewXml: xml,

        return web.lists.getByTitle(listTitle).getItemsByCAMLQuery(q).then((docDetails)=>{
            console.log("Folder details",docDetails);
            return docDetails;


    public static returnCamlQueryToGetDocSetOrFolder(folerName){
        const viewXml =
        "<View>" +
        "<Query>" +
            "<Where>" +
                "<And>" +
                    "<Eq>" +
                        "<FieldRef Name=\"FSObjType\"/>" +
                        "<Value Type=\"Integer\">1</Value>" +
                    "</Eq>" +
                    "<Eq>" +
                        "<FieldRef Name=\"FileLeafRef\" />" +
                        "<Value Type=\"Text\">" + folerName + "</Value>" +
                    "</Eq>" +
                "</And>" +
            "</Where>" +
        "</Query>" +
        "<RowLimit>1</RowLimit>" +
        return viewXml;
