    import-from

    Import a module like with require() but from a given path

    Install

    $ npm install import-from
    

    Usage

    const importFrom = require('import-from');
    
    // There is a file at `./foo/bar.js`
    
    importFrom('foo', './bar');

    API

    importFrom(fromDirectory, moduleId)

    Like require(), throws when the module can't be found.

    importFrom.silent(fromDirectory, moduleId)

    Returns undefined instead of throwing when the module can't be found.

    fromDirectory

    Type: string

    Directory to import from.

    moduleId

    Type: string

    What you would use in require().

    Tip

    Create a partial using a bound function if you want to import from the same fromDir multiple times:

    const importFromFoo = importFrom.bind(null, 'foo');
    
    importFromFoo('./bar');
    importFromFoo('./baz');
