    node-shyp

    Precompile your node modules, use npm as your data store:

    coolmodule
    optional:
      coolmodule-shyp-win32-x64
      coolmodule-shyp-win32-ia32
      coolmodule-shyp-darwin-x64
      coolmodule-shyp-darwin-ia32
      ...

    Installation

    To install

    npm install -g node-shyp

    Instructions

    node-shyp is simple. All your node-gyp configuration works as before, with just a few modifications to package.json.

    1. Run node-shyp init to create default shyp-blacklist.js file in your root

    2. Set your "install" script to blacklist compiled platforms on npm install

    "scripts": {
        "install": "node shyp-blacklist.js win32-x64 [etc...] || node-gyp rebuild"
    }

    3. Add compiled modules as optional dependencies

    Node will only install those dependencies that match your arch/platform (due to the published code's package.json settings).

    {
        "version": "1.1.3",
        "optionalDependencies": {
           "coolmodule-shyp-win32-x64": "1.1.x",
           ...
        }
    }

    4. Run node-shyp publish from the root directory on each platform you build for.

    This will publish the compiled versions of the code to npm.

    5. npm install bindings-shyp to load the precompiled version or the loaded version.

    Just like the bindings module.

    module.exports = require('bindings-shyp')('canvas')

    Building against Node versions

    Shyp automatically compiles against multiple Node versions for compatibility. (As of Feb 2013, releasing for stable versions means building against 0.8.26 and 0.10.26.) These are hardcoded though they probably shouldn't be.

    • 0.8.x uses the tag "v8.3-11" for its node version.
    • 0.10.x uses the tag "v8.3-14" until 0.10.4, where NODE_MODULE_VERSION is exposed. Shyp hardcodes this version to equal "node-v11".
    • 0.10.4 onward uses "node-v11".
    • 0.11.x uses "node-v14".
