Universal Module Definition for use in automated build systems

  • simple synchronous wrapping of a string
  • return style module support
  • CommonJS support
  • prevents internal UMDs from conflicting

In order for the UMD wrapper to work the source code for your module should return the export, e.g.

function method() {
  //code 
}
method.helper = function () {
  //code 
}
return method;

For examples, see the examples directory. The CommonJS module format is also supported by passing true as the second argument to methods.

options:

  • commonJS (default: false) - If commonJS is true then it will accept CommonJS source instead of source code which returns the module.

The name should the the name of the module. Use a string like name, all lower case with hyphens instead of spaces.

If source should be a string, that is wrapped in umd and returned as a string.

return the text which will be inserted before a module.

return the text which will be inserted after a module.

Usage: umd <name> <source> <destination> [options]
 
Pipe Usage: umd <name> [options] < source > destination
 
Options:
 
 -h --help     Display usage information
 -c --commonJS Use CommonJS module format

You can easilly pipe unix commands together like:

cat my-module.js | umd my-module | uglify-js > my-module.umd.min.js
