Convert a CJS module to an ES6 module.

CJS to ES6 Module

Convert a CJS module to an ES6 module.

  • Unlike other package managers, all import stuff must occur at the top-level of the module.
  • Does not support require()s in try/catch statements
  • Does not support conditional require()s
  • Does not support require()ing the same module multiple times
  • Does not support code with its own require() functions or methods
  • Does not fix extensions, which might be necessary for ES6 modules
  • Probably only supports module MyModule from "cjs-module" syntax, not the import {stuff} from "cjs-module" syntax
var convert = require('cjs-to-module');
var js = convert(someCommonJSString);

The output will look something like:

module __0 from "events";
module __1 from "./local";
 
var __module = {};
(function (moduleexports) {
 
})(__module, __module.exports = {});
 
export default __module.exports;
