Memoize the results of the path.relative function.
path.relative can be an expensive operation if it happens a lot, and its results shouldn't change for the same arguments.
$ npm install cached-path-relative
Use it just like your normal path.relative, but it's memoized:
var relative = require('cached-path-relative') relative('test/index.js', '.') === '../..'
If you want to shim path.relative globally so that you can optimize things that don't know about this module (browserify rebuild times are a good use-case here), you can just import the shim:
This will globally shim
path.relative so that its results are cached.
