    Super minimal browserify development server. Inspired by beefy but with less magic

    Build Status


    npm install wzrd -g

    note that you must have a copy of browserify installed as well. It can be either local (preferred) or global.

    npm install browserify --save


    wzrd app.js

    This will start a local development server (default of localhost:9966) that serves all files in the current folder with the exception of app.js, which will be browserified instead. wzrd will spawn the command browserify app.js and send the output bundle back to the client.

    If no index.html is present in the directory you run wzrd in, one will be generated for you that has a <script src='app.js'></script> in it.


    You can also specify a mapping:

    wzrd app.js:bundle.js

    This means if a request to the server comes in for bundle.js, wzrd will run the command browserify app.js and serve that.

    multiple entries

    wzrd app.js:bundle.js foo.js:bar.js baz.js


    wzrd app.js --https

    this will start a local https server (by default https://localhost:4443) and generate a self signed SSL certificate. You will get a certificate error in your browser, but if you ignore the error the app should load.

    passing extra args to browserify

    wzrd app.js -- -t brfs

    anything after -- will get passed directly to browserify as arguments. so the example above would spawn the command browserify app.js -t brfs

    pushstate server support

    wzrd app.js --pushstate

    if you want to leverage the html5 pushstate and support natural urls in your frontend application you can use the --pushstate flag. This flag will instruct the wzrd server to always return index.html for any file not found request from your server.
