    require-like

    Build Status

    Generates require functions that act as if they were operating in a given path.

    Install

    npm install require-like

    Usage

    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);

    API

    requireLike(path, [uncached])

    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.

    Implementation Details

    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.

    What to do with this

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