urify-emitter

experimental

Similar to webpack's file-loader, this builds on the urify transform but emits a file into an application-level output directory. This allows for modular front-end code which relies on images and icons, without increasing JS bundle size or sacrificing browser image caching optimizations.

Example front-end code:

var datauri = require('datauri')
var uri = datauri(__dirname+'/icon.png')
 
var img = new Image()
img.onload = function() {
    console.log("Image loaded!")
}
img.src = uri

Now, from your application, you can bundle the code using the urify-emitter plugin.

browserify -p [ urify-emitter -o images ] index.js > bundle.js

This will emit a bundle.js file, which inlines the URI like so:

var uri = 'images/53cf2c1426533b467d606312b4e246ef.png'

It will also copy the static asset icon.png with the above hashed URL to your specified output directory, in this case images.

You can also specifiy a --limit (or -l) option, and if the file is under that size in bytes, it will be inlined as a regular data URI.

bundle-wide

The plugin only transforms source at the top-level (i.e. application). To transform all module code throughout a bundle, you will need browserify v.6.1.0+ and the --ignore-transform command to override all urify transforms:

browserify -p urify-emitter --it urify index.js > bundle.js

gulp, grunt, npm scripts

For a practical implementation of this, see urify-example.

Usage

NPM

  • --output, -o the output directory, defaults to .
  • --limit, -l the limit in bytes, under which we will inline with a Data URI
  • --base, -b an optional base to use on the inlined URL, which is joined with the asset name. For example, your local output directory might be in app/output, but your site URLs you can specify --base output so they look like output/53cf2c14265..png
