cache-require-source

Caches loaded source in module require to speed up next app load

This is a partial solution to slow Node application startup. See Node’s require is dog slow for details.

Use

npm install --save cache-require-source

Load the module first in your application file

// index.js
require('cache-require-source');
...

The first time the app loads a cache of 3rd party file sources will be saved in a local . file. Every application startup after that will reuse this cache to avoid loading multiple files. Works well with cache-require-paths.

TODO

  • [ ] Cache only the 3rd party javascript sources
  • [ ] Invalidate cache if dependencies in the package.json change
