project-require Build Status

Allows to require project files as absolute paths, relative to the root of your node project. Because how often you're using absolute path in your requires? :)


// override require
var require = require('project-require');
// use it to require everything else,
// and using absolute path, but relative
// to the project's root
var common = require('/lib/common');
// instead of
var worksToo = require('../../../lib/common');
// in rare case when full path needed to be required
var anotherLib = require.thru('/real/absolute/path');


  • Meant for the projects with deep nested structure.
  • Doesn't affect other modules or files
  • Not meant to be used in shared modules, just for apps
