resolve-from

resolve-from Build Status

Resolve the path of a module like require.resolve() but from a given path

Install

$ npm install --save resolve-from

Usage

const resolveFrom = require('resolve-from');
 
// There is a file at `./foo/bar.js` 
 
resolveFrom('foo', './bar');
//=> '/Users/sindresorhus/dev/test/foo/bar.js' 

API

resolveFrom(fromDir, moduleId)

Like require(), throws when the module can't be found.

resolveFrom.silent(fromDir, moduleId)

Returns null instead of throwing when the module can't be found.

fromDir

Type: string

Directory to resolve from.

moduleId

Type: string

What you would use in require().

Tip

Create a partial using a bound function if you want to resolve from the same fromDir multiple times:

const resolveFromFoo = resolveFrom.bind(null, 'foo');
 
resolveFromFoo('./bar');
resolveFromFoo('./baz');
