Easier node require
Instead of doing this
var http = require'http'myModule = require'./lib/myModule'User = require'./lib/models'User;// rest of your code
require"them"// rest of you code
- Avoid redundand pattern of require
- Have centralized, relative to the root require
- Contistent naming across my application
- Configurable require for test and coverage
- Stop the "where the comma should go" debate
- Do not use in libraries or modules, but you can safely use it in your application.
- This library is quite young, please be careful and patient.
npm install them --save
You must initialize them before you use it, because you have to tell what is your root module and all the required modules should be relative to that.
- module: do not change it, you have to pass the module
- mapping: a simple which contains mapping between name and module if it doesn't match.
require'them'initmodule_: "underscore"email: "./services/email"User: "./models/models#User";
require"them"// you code;
- Automatically require module based on the parameter name
- You have to configure manually your own submodules to be requirable, by default it search from the ./lib/ directory
- You can change the default library directory with THEM_LIB environment variable. It's useful for coverage
