Crosstalk packaging for Node.js projects

crosstalkify

Crosstalk packaging for node.js projects built on top of browserify.

crosstalkify uses an extension to browserify that is implemented in this fork.

example

Write an entry.js with require()s in it:

// use relative requires 
var foo = require( './foo' );
 
// use Crosstalk requires 
var self = require( 'self' );
 
// or use modules installed by npm into node_modules/ 
var uuid = require( 'prefixed-uuid' );
 
// global `crosstalk` variable is available 
crosstalk.on( 'some.message', function () {
  crosstalk.emit( 'some.message.response' );
});

Now you can use crosstalkify command to build a worker file for upload that takes entry.js as it's entry point:

crosstak-project$ crosstalkify -o worker.js

All of the modules are included in the final worker.js, browserify-style.

worker.js is now ready for upload to Crosstalk Swarm along with it's package.json.
