Recursively searches for files in a directory and returns an AsyncIterableIterator of the found paths.

import { findFilesRecursively } from '@sapphire/node-utilities';

const files = findFilesRecursively('./src');
for await (const file of files) {

// This, for example, could log:
// /root/src/index.js
// /root/src/database.csv
// /root/src/lib/utils/constants.json

// Alternate forms:
const files = findFilesRecursivelyStringStartsWith('./src', 'index'); // filename starts with "index"
const files = findFilesRecursivelyStringEndsWith('./src', '.js'); // filename ends with ".js"
const files = findFilesRecursivelyStringIncludes('./src', 'database'); // filename includes "database"
const files = findFilesRecursivelyRegex('./src', /\.[tj]sx?$/); // filename matches the regex
