Blister npm npm PRs Welcome

Minimalist dependency injection container for JavaScript.

Installation

The package is available as a UMD module: compatible with AMD, CommonJS and exposing a global variable Blister in dist/blister.min.js (1.3 KB minified and gzipped).

It can be installed via npm (for both Node.js and browserify/webpack), Bower or downloading it from the repository:

npm install blister
bower install blister

Usage

Loading

var Blister = require('blister');
require(['blister'], function(Blister) {
  // Usage
});
<script src="bower_components/blister/dist/blister.min.js"></script>
<script>var Blister = window.Blister;</script> 

Basic usage

var container = new Blister();

Getting dependencies

Example:

container.value('name', 'Robert');
container.value('surname', 'Baratheon');
 
container.get('name'); //> 'Robert'
container.has('name'); //> true
container.pick('name', 'surname'); //> { name: 'Robert', surname: 'Baratheon' }
 
container.keys(); //> ['name', 'surname']

Setting values

Raw values can be stored in the container. The registered parameters is what the container returns when the dependency is requested.

Example:

container.value('protocol', 'http://');
container.get('protocol'); //> 'http://'
 
container.value('randomFn', Math.random);
container.get('randomFn'); //> function random() { [native code] }

Setting services

Dependencies can be registered as a singleton functions. Those functions are executed the first time the associated dependency is requested. The result of the functions is returned and cached for subsequent calls.

Example:

container.service('host', function(c) {
  console.log('called');
  return c.get('protocol') === 'http://' ?
    'example.com' : 'secure.example.com';
});
container.get('host'); //> 'example.com'
// called
container.get('host'); //> 'example.com'

Setting factories

Dependencies can also be registered as factory functions. Those functions are executed every time the dependency is requested.

Example:

container.factory('timestamp', function() {
  return Date.now();
});
container.get('timestamp'); 1431773272660
container.get('timestamp'); 1431773281953

Extending dependencies

Dependencies already defined in the container can be modified or extended. That functionality can be useful, for example, to add plugins to a service.

The extension preserves the type of the original dependency (factory or service).

Example:

container.service('some-service', function() {
  return service;
});
 
// after that definition
container.extend('some-service', function(service, c) {
  service.addLogger(c.get('logger'));
});
 
container.get('service'); //> singleton service with logger

If the previous dependency is not used in the definition of the extension, it can be replaced using value, factory or service instead.

Registering service providers

Service providers can be used to help organizing the registration of dependencies. A service provider can be both a function or anything implementing a register method.

Example with a function:

function provider(container) {
   container.value('protocol', 'http://');
   container.value('host', 'example.com');
}
 
var container = new Blister();
container.register(provider);

Example with object:

var provider = {
 register: function(container) {
   container.value('protocol', 'http://');
   container.value('host', 'example.com');
 }
};
 
var container = new Blister();
container.register(provider);
