extractify

Browserify plugin to extract code to be lazy or on-demand loaded into separate bundles aka code-splitting.

build status

install

npm install extractify

how it works

Following diagram summarizes how extractify works:

alt tag

  1. dep4 module in above diagram is determined to be loaded as on-demand and should be stripped from the main bundle main.js.
  2. Therefore it will have its own stripped bundle, lazy_bundle_dep4.js which will be loaded later.
  3. The stripped bundle will also include the modules what only dep4 depends on. In this case dep5 is only used by dep4. On the other hand, dep1 module is included in main_app_bundle.js since it was already used by main.js.
  4. Optionally a map object which holds defer loaded module name and bundle name key value pairs can be injected into main entry or different .json config file soft or hard. See bundleMapOption options below

usage

You can use extractify as a browserify plugin:

browserify -[ extractify OPTIONS ]
 
  // see below for OPTIONS

options

// Sampe command line OPTIONS
browserify test/files/main.js -['extractify' --lazy [ [ --entries [ './test/files/dep4.js' './test/files/dep6.js' ] --outfile './test/lazy_bundle/lazy_bundle.js' ] ] --bundleMapOption [ --injectSoft false --dest 'test/lazy_bundle/map.json' ] ] > test/lazy_bundle/main_bundle.js
 
// Sample api OPTIONS
{
  bundleMapOption: {
    injectSoft: false,
    dest: 'lazy_bundle/map.json'
  },
  lazy: [
    {
      entries: [
        './files/dep4.js'
      ],
      outfile: './lazy_bundle/lazy_bundle_dep4.js'
    }
  ]
}
  • bundleMapOption: optional property that instructs how the map object will be injected into source or written into file system
    • injectSoft: instructs how the map object will be injected. If it is true, it will be written to the dest file [default: true]
    • dest: optional location of map destination .json map file which holds module name and bundle name key value pairs
  • lazy: holds the lazy entry and output files definition.
    • entries: array of the entry module names to build stripped lazy bundle
    • outfile: name of the stripped lazy bundle

api plugin example

var browserify = require('browserify');
var fs = require('fs');
var b = browserify(['./files/main.js'], {
    basedir: __dirname
});
b.plugin('extractify', {
  lazy: [
    {
      entries: [
        './files/dep4.js',
        './files/dep6.js'
      ],
      outfile: './bundles/lazy_bundle.js'
    }
  ]
});
b.bundle().pipe(fs.createWriteStream('./bundles/main_app.js'))
 

events

b.on('lazyWritten', function (outfile) {})

Emits with lazy bundle outfile right after the splitted bundle written into the file system

b.on('lazyStream', function (stream) {})

Each splitted bundles will emits stream before written into filesystem. The outfile name is available as stream.file.
