Easily add plugin support to your node.js application.

Please consider following this project's author, Jon Schlinkert, and consider starring the project to show your ❤️ and support.


Install with npm:

$ npm install --save use

A different take on plugin handling! This is not a middleware system, if you need something that handles async middleware, ware is great for that.


var use = require('use');

See the examples folder for usage examples.



Pull requests and stars are always welcome. For bugs and feature requests, please create an issue.
