remove requires


npm install derequire
var derequire = require('derequire');
var transformedCode = derequire(code, /*tokenTo=*/'_dereq_', /*tokenFrom=*/'require');

derequire takes a string of code and replaces all instances of the tokenFrom identifier (defaults to 'require') and replaces them with the tokenTo identifier (defaults to '_dereq_') but only if they are functional arguments or variable declarations and subsequent uses of said argument, then returnes the code.

For multiple renames at the same time, the following syntax is accepted:

derequire(code, [
    from: 'require',
    to: '_dereq_'
    from: 'define',
    to: '_defi_'

Note: In order to avoid quite a few headaches the token you're changing from and the token you're changing to need to be the same length.
