jhi - Javascript Helper Installer

This is a super lightweight alternative to one liner npm packages. If all you want is to share some helper functions, this is the tool.

This will fetch all desired helpers and put them into your location folder (as specified in the config); It will then create an index.js file that exposes all of them.

Be careful

  • It will clobber any existing files of those names.
  • It will clobber your <helpers dir>/index.js;

Requirements

Any helpers downloaded must be "requirable" (eg, it must export something).

See PACKAGES.md for some recommendations.

Usage

  1. Add a .jhirc file to your application.

    {
      "location": "lib/helpers",
      "helpers": {
        "leftpad": "https://raw.githubusercontent.com/camwest/left-pad/v1.0.1/index.js"
      }
    }
    
  2. Run node node_modules/.bin/jhi

Caveat

This is a very initial approach to see if there is any value. There are no tests and minimal error handling. I'm ok with that for now since this should be a fire and forget and not part of a normal build process.

If this crazy experiment shows promise, I will clean things up.

TODO

  • Be smarter about clobbering things
  • Be smarter about whether helpers export stuff
