    budo

    1.1.0 • Public • Published

    budō

    unstable

    This is a browserify development server inspired by beefy and wzrd, but with a stronger focus on incremental bundling, LiveReload (including CSS injection), and other experimental features down the road.

    Note that budo needs a copy of watchify installed. It can be either local (preferred) or global.

    npm install budo watchify -g

    The simplest use cases will start up a server with a default index.html and incrementally bundle your source on filesave. Examples:

    #run watchify on port 9966 
    budo index.js
     
    #run watchify with explicit output file  
    budo index.js --outfile bundle.js --verbose
     
    #run watchify with some options and trigger LiveReload on change 
    budo index.js --live --transform brfs

    You can open localhost:9966 to see the content in action.

    To pretty-print in terminal, garnish, bistre or another ndjson-based stream can be used.

    budo index.js -o bundle.js | garnish

    See docs for more features.

    PRs/suggestions/comments welcome. Props to @caspervonb for the early groundwork.

    Script Injection

    The original motivation for making budō was to build a simple tool around Chrome Script Injection. This has since split off into its own repository: budo-chrome to minimize the scope of budō.
