    require brings require to the browser

    Node's require() is the de facto javascript dependency statement.

    npm is the de facto javascript module manager.

    require brings both of them to the browser.

    tl;dr

    "Just give me some code that runs"

    mkdir app; cd app
    echo '{ "name":"app" }' > package.json
    sudo npm install require
    sudo npm install raphael
    curl -O https://raw.github.com/gist/975866/little_server.js
    curl -O https://raw.github.com/gist/975868/little_client.js
    node little_server.js
    

    Now go to http://localhost:8080

    Install

    sudo npm install -g require
    

    Run

    Start dev server

    require serve ./example --port 1234 --host localhost
    

    In your HTML:

    <script src="//localhost:1234/require/client"></script>
    

    This is like calling require('client') from inside ./example. Read more on node's require path resolution

    Compile

    (You'll want to do this before you deploy to production)

    require compile ./example/client.js > client.min.js
    

    Use programmatically

    In node:

    require('require/server').listen(1234)
    

    or mount it on an http server you're already running

    var server = http.createServer(function(req, res) { })
    require('require/server').mount(server)
    server.listen(8080, 'localhost')
    

    or, as connect middleware

    connect.createServer(
    	connect.static(__dirname + '/example'),
    	require('require/server').connect()
    )
    

    Compile programmatically:

    var compiler = require('require/compiler')
    console.log(compiler.compile('./example/client.js'))
    console.log(compiler.compileCode('require("./example/client")'))
    

    The compiler supports all the options of https://github.com/mishoo/UglifyJS, e.g.

    compiler.compile('./example/client.js', { beautify:true, ascii_only:true })
