var walkSync = function(dir, filelist) {
var fs = fs || require('fs'),
files = fs.readdirSync(dir);

Alternative solution in Just two lines, Just for fun and learning

const path = ''; // 👈 path to your location
const list = require("child_process").execSync(`cd ${path} && ls -R`).toString().split(`\n`);

⚠️ IMPORTANT
Be careful, this solution use a bash script and it works fine in MACOS, for windows or linux could be different

Please, never do that
