Component Downloader

Downloads components based on remotes.

  • Either download a component based on specific fields, or just download the entire repository
  • Unglobs all the fields of the component.json
  • Normalizes the component.json
  • Deletes corrupted installations
var Downloader = require('component-downloader');
var downloader = Downloader({
  concurrency: 5, // 5 files at a time 
  verbose: true,
});
 
co(function* () {
  yield* download('component/emitter', '1.0.0');
  // will be installed to components/component/emitter/1.0.0 
})

If you don't want to use generators:

var download = co(download);
download('component/emitter', '1.0.0', function (err) {
  if (err) throw err;
  console.log('downloaded!');
})

The options are:

  • dir <components> - folder to download components to.
  • remotes - remotes to download from. Defaults to only github.
  • fields - fields to download and unglob. Defaults to those specificed in the specifications.
  • concurrency <1> - number of concurrent file downloads.
  • verbose - log when installs start and finish.
  • archive - download the entire repository instead of just the files specified in the fields.
  • maxFiles <10> - maximum number of files to download before just downloading the entire repository.
  • remotes - array of remote names to download from
  • repo
  • ref
  • archive - download the entire repository
