Browserify transform that converts AMD to CommonJS.


This module is a browserify plugin that will transform AMD modules into Node.js-style modules so that they can be included in browser-ified bundles.

With this transform in place, Node and AMD modules can be freely intermixed, and the resulting bundle can be used without the need for a separate loader such as RequireJS.

For when you're stuck and need help:

$ npm install deamdify

Bundle up all required modules, including AMD modules, into a single file using browserify with the deamdify transform.

browserify -t deamdify main.js -o bundle.js
var browserify = require('browserify');
var fs = require('fs');
var b = browserify('main.js');

For packages that are written as AMD modules, add a browserify transform field to package.json and browserify will apply the transform to all modules in the package as it builds a bundle.
