    find-module

    Find a module specified by a require path using Node's module resolution.

    npm install find-module
    

    Usage

    var findModule = require('find-module');
     
    findModule('./some-path', {
        dirname: 'some-parent-dir' // the directory from which ./some-path should be resolved
    }, function(err, filename) {
        console.log('some-path resolved to '+filename+' from some-parent-dir');
    });
     
    // or dont provide a callback to use the sync version
     
    var filename = findModule('./some-path', {
        dirname: 'some-parent-dir' // the directory from which ./some-path should be resolved
    });
     
    console.log('some-path resolved to '+filename+' from some-parent-dir');

    If you pass a module path ('my-module') find-module by default will look for a node_modules folder to find my-module. If you want to use a different module folder you can set the modules option

    findModule('my-module', {
        modules: 'custom_modules',
        dirname: 'some-parent-dir'
    }, ...);

    When you resolve a path find-module by default will look for path+'.js' and path+'.json' if the path does not exist. If you want to look for other kind of extensions set the extensions option

    findModule('my-module', {
        dirname: 'some-parent-dir',
        extensions: ['txt']
    }, ...);

    Combine the modules and extensions settings to roll out your own module finder. A template module finder could look like this

    findModule('my-template', {
        dirname: 'some-parent-dir',
        modules: 'templates',
        extensions: ['html']
    }, ...);
