Navel Piercing Madness

    "DI" means both "Dynamic Import" and "Dependency Injection" here. This package allows defining logical namespaces in your projects, dynamically importing ES6-modules from these namespaces, creating new objects from imported functions/classes and resolving dependencies in constructors. It uses pure ECMAScript 2015+ (ES6+) and works both for modern browsers & nodejs apps. You can share the same code between your frontend (browser) and your backend (nodejs) without TypeScript and preprocessors. Code in the browser's debugger will be the same as in your editor. Finally, you even can use interfaces in you projects and replace it with implementations.

    The 'proxy object' for constructor specification is inspired by awilix. Thanks guys.

    Container uses dynamic import to load source files. Each file must be a valid ES-module. Every ES-module forms a namespace for all nested components (constants, functions, classes). This namespace must have unique name across all other namespaces (ES-modules) in the application - DI container uses these namespaces to lookup for files with sources.

     * @namespace Vendor_Package_Module_Name

    ES-modules can use regular import statements in code:

    import ScanData from '../Api/Dto/Scanned.mjs';
    import {existsSync, readdirSync, readFileSync, statSync} from 'fs';

    but DI container cannot process these imports. Function or class should have this interface to be compatible with DI container:

    export default function ObjectFactory(spec) {/* ... */}
    export default class SomeClass {
        constructor(spec) {/* ... */}

    Factory function or class constructor must have one only input argument - spec (specification). This spec argument is a proxy that analyzes requests to spec props and creates dependencies on demand ( see SpecProxy.mjs). So we can interrupt factory for every unresolved dependency, create requested dependency and return it to the factory.

    Typical code for ES-module compatible with DI container:

    export default class Vnd1_Pkg1_Prj1_Mod1 {
        constructor(spec) {
            const Mod2 = spec['Vnd2_Pkg2_Prj2_Mod2#']; // get as class
            const mod3 = spec['Vnd3_Pkg3_Prj3_Mod3$']; // get as singleton
            const mod4 = spec['Vnd4_Pkg4_Prj4_Mod4$$']; // get as new instance

    You don't need filenames anymore, use logical namespaces instead (like in PHP Zend 1).
