pjson

PJSON

PJSON is a simple npm package that let's you read the package.json file.

Usage

Install it

npm install pjson --save

and use it in your code like this

var pjson = require('pjson');
 
// simply access values package.json
console.log(pjson.version);

Why?

In Node.js you can already import json files by simple giving their names in the require statements but this approach doesn't always work well.

First of all it's path dependend. So if your project has a nested structure you might endup with a code that looks like this

var pjson = require('../../../package.json');

TypeScript

In typescript you cannot create module definitions for relatively imported things. PJSON resolves this issue for you because you can import it just by name

Old versions of Node

Importing JSON files using require is only enabled on late versions of node. For old versions, PJSON is might be useful

Because I need it

It's simple, I needed it for my own project and I though it might be useful for other as well :)
