Node.js requires JavaScript, and won't work within ExtendScript. TVMStern's advice about using ExtendScript's File and Folder objects, is sound.

What do you try to do? Are you simply want to know where your JSX lies? There isn't any tools for this task AFAIK because all of scripts lie in operative memory after loading CEP. Look at File class and Folder class. They can help you.

 

// Get parent folder of file in extendscript
var pathToFile = "/path/to/file.zip"
var fileObj = new File(pathToFile);
var parent = fileObj.parent.fsName; // >> /path/to
