    Find package.json files in module and load information from it.


    Unfortunately I don't have any more time to maintain this repository :-(

    Don't you want to save me and this project by taking over it?

    $ npm install module-info


    Base option is to set base directory of module.

    var Info = require('module-info');
    var info = new Info('/path/to/some/module');

    Find from file in module

    If you have got some file somewhere in module directory tree, module-info can find information about module automatically.

    var info = Info.fromFile('/path/to/some/module/and/some/file/in/it.js');

    Find by name (in node_modules)

    You can search for information about some module on which your module is dependent.

    var info = Info.fromName(module, 'dependent-module');

    Find for your module

    This option is similar for example to package pkginfo.

    var info = Info.self(module);

    Info object

    • getPackagePath(): returns path to package.json file
    • getData(): returns parsed JSON data from package.json file
    • getName(): returns name of module
    • getPath(): returns resolved path to module
    • getVersion(): returns version of module
    • getMainFile(): returns resolved full path to main file (even it is not defined in package.json)
    • getModuleName(string filePath, bool relative = false): returns name for file in module used in require method
    • isNpmDependency(): return true if module is dependency for another module
    • isFileInModule(string filePath): checks if file is in module directory (not in any dependent sub-module)
