meteor-globals

1.1.2 • Public • Published

meteor-globals Build status Coverage Status

Allows simple usage of meteor globals inside npm packages

Limitations

As the name suggests, it's only possible to get the globals. It's not possible to get the es6 exports of custom atmosphere packages.

Installation

  npm install meteor-globals

Usage

Use ensureDependencies to ensure, that all your dependencies are installed. Do it, right after your package was loaded and make sure that you have specified the name option, that the user knows were the dependencies are coming from. After that, you can use getGlobal to get the globals from these packages.

  import { ensureDependencies, getGlobal } from 'meteor-globals'
 
  ensureDependencies([
    'mongo',
    'cultofcoders:redis-oplog',
    'teamgrid:optimistic-increment@1.0.0', // depending on specific versions are also possible (semver)
  ], {
    name: 'my-awesome-meteor-npm-package',
    restart: true,
  })
 
  const Mongo = getGlobal('mongo', 'Mongo') // from core package
  const RedisOplog = getGlobal('cultofcoders:redis-oplog', 'RedisOplog') // from atmosphere package

Exports

ensureDependencies(packageNames[], options = { restart: true, name: 'A recently installed npm package'})

Installes the specified atmosphere packages and forces a restart if the restart option is true. It's highly recommended to specify a name from where the dependencies were installed.

getGlobal(packageName, globalName) => Any

Gets the value of a meteor global. If globalName is omitted, all exports of the specified package will be returned. getGlobal returns null if a Package isn't present

checkMeteor(opts = { fileCheck: false, globalCheck: true }) => Boolean

Checks if executed inside of a meteor project.

ensureDependency(packageName) => Boolean

Installes a single atmosphere package. Use ensureDependencies for convenience.
