    CommonJS Require

    browser-side CommonJS require() function.

    Usage

    Add commonjs-require.js as script src to your site.

    Example

    <script src="commonjs-require.js"></script>
    <script>
    require.register("module", function(exports, require, module){
      /* Some Module content */
      module.exports = "content"
    })
    alert(require('module'))
    </script> 

    This will alert content

    Automated wrapping into require.register

    Why not browserify?

    Browserify requires (scnr) that you use some magic AST/require.resolve mechanism to built your CommonJS package/files for the browser. This is really complex - especially if you have to bundle different files for different sections of your website, use dynamic requires or have circular dependencies.

    API

    • require(name) — loads registered module and returns its exports.
    • require.register(name, fn) — registers new module. fn should have signature exports, require, module.
    • require.list() — lists all registered modules.

    Node Module support

    commonjs-require emulates the actual loading mechanism from Node.js in that it delegates all require() calls to Module._load() (Module is exposed via the "module" module). This improves support for modules which rely on the Node module system implementation (for example Mockery).

    Module API

    • Module._load(request, parent) - does the actual module loading and instantiation
    • Module._cache - is the cache of loaded modules, can be cleared by assigning an empty object
    • Module._resolveFilename - determines the actual module id (e.g. adds "index" if its missing)
