    esbuild-plugin-import-map

    A ESBuild plugin to apply import map mapping to ECMAScript modules (ESM) ahead of time.

    Installation

    $ npm install esbuild-plugin-import-map

    Usage

    import * as importMap from "esbuild-plugin-import-map";
    
    importMap.load({
        imports: {
            'lit-element': 'https://cdn.eik.dev/lit-element/v2'
        }
    });
    
    esbuild.build({
        entryPoints: ['source/main.js'],
        bundle: true,
        format: 'esm',
        minify: false,
        sourcemap: false,
        target: ['chrome58', 'firefox57', 'safari11', 'edge16'],
        plugins: [importMap.plugin()],
        outfile: 'out.js',
    }).catch(() => process.exit(1))

    Description

    This plugin transforms import specifiers in ESM based on mappings defined in one or more import maps. Import maps are an emerging specification yet to be implemented in browsers, however this module can be used to apply import maps ahead of time.

    One use case for import maps is to transform ESM bare import statements to an import statement which is an absolute URL to the same module on a CDN.

    Lets say we have the following in our ESM when developing locally with node.js:

    import {html, render} from 'lit-html';

    Then on build we can apply the following import map:

    {
      "imports": {
        "lit-html": "https://cdn.eik.dev/npm/lit-html/v1/lit-html.js",
      }
    }

    When applied, our output wil be:

    import * as lit from 'https://cdn.eik.dev/npm/lit-html/v1/lit-html.js'

    API

    This module has the following API:

    .load([map])

    The load() methods can take a absolute path to a import map or an import map as an object directly. Values can be passed on as a single value or an Array of multiple values.

    An absolute path to a import map file:

    import * as importMap from "esbuild-plugin-import-map";
    
    importMap.load('source/import-map.json');

    Absolute paths to multiple import map files:

    import * as importMap from "esbuild-plugin-import-map";
    
    importMap.load([
        'source/import-map-a.json',
        'source/import-map-b.json',
        'source/import-map-c.json',
    ]);

    Mix of absolute paths to import map files and import maps provided as an object:

    import * as importMap from "esbuild-plugin-import-map";
    
    importMap.load([
        'source/import-map-a.json',
        {
        "imports": {
            "lit-html": "https://cdn.eik.dev/npm/lit-html/v1/lit-html.js",
        }
        },
        'source/import-map-b.json',
    ]);

    When an array of import maps is provided and multiple import maps use the same import specifier, the last import specifier in the array will be the one which is applied.

    .plugin()

    Returns the plugin which will apply the loaded import maps during build. The returned plugin should be appended to the ESBuild plugin array.

    import * as importMap from "esbuild-plugin-import-map";
    
    importMap.load('source/import-map.json');
    
    esbuild.build({
        entryPoints: ['source/main.js'],
        bundle: true,
        format: 'esm',
        minify: false,
        sourcemap: false,
        target: ['chrome58', 'firefox57', 'safari11', 'edge16'],
        plugins: [importMap.plugin()],
        outfile: 'out.js',
    }).catch(() => process.exit(1))

    .clear()

    Clears the loaded import maps from the plugins internal cache.
