$ npm install requirejs-module-build

running

The binary is named requirejs-build.

Usage: requirejs-build module [options]

Arguments:
  module        Name of the module to build or "all" for all modules including
                all filters

Options:
  -f, --filter <name>           Filter/submodule name
  -c, --config <path>           Path to config file
  -o, --optimizer <name>        Override RequireJS optimizer
  -p, --parallel <number>	    Number of parallel builds to run. Defaults is 5
  --placeholder                 Build placeholder
  -v, --verbose                 Be verbose
  -h, --help                    Print this

configuration

The binary will by default look for a file named requirejs-build.json in the directory you are standing in and up the directory tree. You can specify the path to the configuration file using the --config option.

All paths in the config will be relative from the configuration file's directory.

example

Lets imagine that you have a web page with an Instagram and Twitter module. The Instagram module has some files that are only needed for mobiles. All the modules use a set of shared libraries and a set of shared templates and javascript files. An example of a configuration for this could look something like this:

{
  "default": {
    "mainConfigFile": "public/js/setup.js",
    "baseUrl": "public/js/",
    "output": "public/js/compiled/",
    "optimize": "uglify2",
    "binary": "/usr/local/bin/r.js",
    "exclude": ["text"]
  },
  "modules": {
    "libs": {
      "include": [
        "jquery",
        "lodash",
        "backbone"
      ]
    },
    "shared": {
      "include": [
        "utils",
        "utils/auth",
        "text!shared/list.html"
      ],
      "excludeModules": ["libs"]
    },
    "instagram": {
      "directory": "modules/instagram",
      "filters": {
        "desktop": "!(*.mobile.*)",
        "mobile": "*.mobile.*"
      },
      "excludeModules": ["libs", "shared"]
    },
    "twitter": {
      "directory": "modules/twitter",
      "excludeModules": ["libs", "shared"]
    }
  }
}

inheritance

All the modules will inherit the options under the default key in the root of the configuration. The modules can also inherit from from other root nodes using the inherit option.

{
  "default": {
    "mainConfigFile": "public/js/setup.js",
    "baseUrl": "public/js/",
    "output": "public/js/compiled/",
    "binary": "/usr/local/bin/r.js",
  },
  "food": {
    "output": "public/js/compiled/food",
    "exclude": ["celery"]
  },
  "modules": {
    "taco": {
      "inherit": "food",
      "include": ["tortilla"]
    }
  }
}

filters

If the filters option is set on a module the module will generate n "submodules" with the given glob filter. Only the "submodules" will be generated, so if you want to have a version with all the files you have to create a filter for that. See example.

excludeModules

A module configuration can add all the generated include files for other modules to the exclude array by using the excludeModules option. See example.
