    Diverge

    Dead simple conditional build tool.

    Installation

    npm install diverge
    

    Usage

      Usage: diverge <input> <output>
     
      Options:
     
        -h, --help     output usage information
        -V, --version  output the version number
        -f, --force    forces overwrite of output file
     
      Examples:
     
        $     env=cjs diverge common.js cjs.js
        $  env=meteor diverge common.js meteor.js
        $ env=globals diverge common.js globals.js

    Directives

    There's 4 conditional directives available:

    • diverge:if
    • diverge:elif
    • diverge:else
    • diverge:fi

    Comparison

    You can use both equality and inequality operators:

    // diverge:if env=browser
    var equality = 'is browser';
    // diverge:elif env!=browser
    var inequality = 'is not browser';
    // diverge:fi

    Instrumenting

    In this example, we have a javascript file which we want to use in:

    • commonjs
    • globals
    • meteor

    So, first we need to instrument it:

    sample.js

    // diverge:if env=cjs
    module.exports
    // diverge:elif env=meteor
    MyModule
    // diverge:else
    window.MyModule;
    // diverge:fi
     
    = function(){
      console.log('Hello World');
    }

    Note that comments are used so the original functionality doesn't get modified whatsoever. You can do the same for the text file you're dealing with.

    In the next step we'll see how we send the env value so our conditionals can work properly.

    Compiling

    In order to compile we need to set our variables accordingly, as we expect them. In this example, we're checking conditions against the env variable. So we set it right before the diverge call.

    Lets see three examples and their corresponding outputs:

    // $ env=cjs diverge sample.js cjs.js
    module.exports
    = function(){
      console.log('Hello World');
    }
    // $ env=meteor diverge sample.js meteor.js
    MyModule
    = function(){
      console.log('Hello World');
    }
    // $ env=globals diverge sample.js globals.js
    window.MyModule
    = function(){
      console.log('Hello World');
    }

    Programatic API

    Signature is such as follows:

    diverge(<input><output>, {locals}, {options});
     
    /*
        input - input file path
       output - output file path
       locals - variables accessible to instrumented code
      options - same as CLI options
     */

    Practical example:

    var diverge = require('diverge');
     
    diverge('source.js', 'cjs.js', {env: 'cjs'}, {force: true});
    1. Note that in the CLI mode our variables (locals) gets read from process.env but in the Javascript mode, we need to explicitly set them.

    2. The options are the same of the CLI, but informed without aliases / dashes.
