source-map-index-generator Donate on Gittip

Generate source-maps from index mappings.

Getting Started

Install the module with: npm install source-map-index-generator

// Load in SourceMapIndexGenerator 
var SourceMapIndexGenerator = require('source-map-index-generator');
// Data output by node-jsmin2 
var input = [
      '// First line comment',
      'var test = {',
      '  a: "b"',
    output = 'var test={a:"b"};',
    srcFile = 'input.js',
    coordmap = {"22":0,"23":1,"24":2,"25":3,"26":4,"27":5,"28":6,"29":7,"31":8,"33":9,"37":10,"38":11,"40":12,"41":13,"42":14,"44":15,"45":16};
// Generate source map via SourceMapIndexGenerator 
var generator = new SourceMapIndexGenerator(generatorProps);
// Add the index coordinate mapping 
  src: srcFile,
  input: input,
  output: output,
  map: coordmap
// Collect our source-map 
generator.toString(); // {"version":3,"file":"min.js","sources":["input.js"],"names":[],"mappings":"AACA,CAAC,CAAC,CAAC,CAAC,CAAC,CAAC,CAAC,CAAE,CAAE,CACT,CAAC,CAAE,CAAC,CAAC,CACP,CAAC"} 


This module returns a constructor for SourceMapIndexGenerator.

new SourceMapIndexGenerator(startOfSourceMap)

To create a new one, you must pass an object with the following properties:

  • file: The filename of the generated source that this source map is associated with.

  • sourceRoot: An optional root for all relative URLs in this source map.


Add code with an index based mapping to the file collection.

The mapping object should have the following properties:

  • src: Filepath to original src.

  • input: Unminified JavaScript.

  • output: Minified JavaScript.

  • map: Map of character index to character index (number -> number)

  • lineOffset: An optional line offset to add to mappings.


In lieu of a formal styleguide, take care to maintain the existing coding style. Add unit tests for any new or changed functionality. Lint and test your code using grunt.
