Default usage (non-verbose) showing required modules in loaded order, above 1% treshold

Verbose (all) & sorted usage showing all required modules in sorted order

Install with npm

npm install --save time-require
  1. Embeded usage, generally as first require() call in your main module.
  1. External usage with --require preload supported by Liftoff driven CLI modules like gulp.js or Grunt-Next
gulp --require time-require --sorted
  1. If you're using gulp.js, use instead gulpt, a gulp CLI wrapper that automatically preload time-require.
npm install -g gulpt
gulpt build --sorted

Modules loading that take less than 1% of the total time are hidden to reduce clutter. To show all the modules use the --verbose (or --V) flag on the running CLI. To sort the modules according to the loading time (longest on top) use the --sorted (or --s) flag on the running CLI.
