    Node Exporter

    Useful modules exporter for global use.

    We always need load modules with following codes:

    var email = require('../../helpers/email')

    If create much more files and directories, I will angry with using the absolute path. So there is a exporter, it is global definition for you.

    Load modules:

    var $ = require('exporter');
     
    $('email', __dirname + '/email.js');

    Use it

    var $ = require('exporter');
     
    // Use it
    $.email('hfcorriez@gmail.com');

    Install

    npm install exporter
    

    Usage

    Export

    In bootstrap file, such as app.js in Express.

    Export variables

    var $ = require('exporter');
     
    // Load with variables
    $.debug = true;
    $.env = process.ENV['NODE_ENV'];

    Export modules from file or directory

    Project structure such as:

    - app.js
    - helpers/
      - uploader.js
      - image.js
      - email.js
      - tools/
        - guid.js
    

    Export

    // Set module directly
    $.uploader = require('./helpers/uploader');
     
    // Or use exporter
    $.email = $(__dirname + '/helpers/email.js');
     
    // And it's same as follow
     
    // Or use function export only
    $('email', __dirname + '/helpers/email.js');
     
    // Export modules in directory
    $.helpers = $(__dirname + './helpers');
     
    // Export modules recursive in directory
    $('allHelpers', __dirname + '/helpers', true);

    Use exporter

    In your process file or Express controller

    var $ = require('exporter');
     
    if ($.debug && $.env == 'product') {
        // Some logic
    }
     
    var guid = $.allHelpers.tools.guid();
    var sendEmail = $.helpers.email;
    var uploader = $.uploader;

    More

    In Express application. You can use to export all routes.

    var $ = require('exporter');
     
    $.routes = $(__dirname + '/routes', true);

    If you have the structure such as:

    - routes/
      - register.js
      - api/
        - users.js
    

    And you can use it simply

    var $ = require('exporter');
     
    app.get('/register', $.routes.register);
    app.get('/api/users', $.routes.api.users);
