npm install require-like

A require function that acts as if it was executed in './lib/bar':

var requireLike = require('require-like');
var myRequire = requireLike(__dirname + '/lib/bar.js');
 
var myFoo = myRequire('./foo.js');
var foo = require('./lib/foo');
 
require('assert').strictEqual(myFoo, foo);

Returns a require function that acts as if it was operating in the given path.

Setting the uncached parameter to true returns a function that by-passes the module cache.

This module works by accessing some private node APIs. You shouldn't worry about that so, since I will make sure this module does not break in the future by either patching it, or making a patch for node that makes the needed APIs public.

I use this library for dependency injection in unit tests. However, you could also use it to create experimental require addons yourself.
