This repository contains a basic set shims for commonly used node API for use in the browser. Unlike node-browser-builtins, which is used by browserify, we do not require an additional build step, since we use amdefine to build AMD modules that can be used in the browser via requirejs and node environments alike.
In a node enviroment, the native node API is provided. In a browser environment, the shims are used. This repo can be used as a drop-in replacement for the node builtins:
var shims = require('node-shims'), util = shims.util;
To run the tests, do the following
> npm install > npm test
To run the tests in the browser as a chrome packaged app, do the following
> npm install > grunt copy > node test-server.js open chrome go to chrome://extensions/ activate developer mode load node-shims as unpacked extension watch the tests pass
Feel free to drop a patch :)
