    Augments require() with support for multiple file formats.

    Supported file formats

    ... which return a JSON representation:

    ... which return a Javascript module:

    ... work in progress:

    • dynamic libraries
    • ruby
    • python

    Behind the scenes, this module adds handlers to require.extensions.

    Install

    npm install better-require
    

    Usage

    /**
     * @param {String} optional - formats is a white space separated list of formats you would like require() to support.
     */
    // support all available extensions
    require('better-require')();
    // support a subset of extensions
    require('better-require')(formats);

    Example

    Enable support for all file types:

    require('better-require')();
     
    var config = require('./config.json');
    console.log(config);

    Enable support for only a subset of file types:

    require('better-require')('json yaml xml');
     
    // we can now require .xml, .yaml and .xml files!
    var config = require('./config.yaml');
    console.log(config);
