node-auto-loader

A simple auto loader for nodejs

Build Status

Install

$ sudo npm install auto-loader

Usage

suppose you had a directory structure like this

app/
└── controllers
    ├── Application.js
    └── User.js

you could build a tree with auto-loader like this

var app = require('auto-loader').load(__dirname +'/app')

if you were to console.log the contents of that object you would see this

{ _path: '/Users/jwerle/repos/node-auto-loader/test/app',
  controllers:
   { _path: '/Users/jwerle/repos/node-auto-loader/test/app/controllers',
     Application: [Getter/Setter],
     User: [Getter/Setter] } }

all modules are wrapped in a getter and make a call to require to fetch their definitions and are cached after the first require

app.controllers.Application; // [Function: Application]

api

.load(dir)

  • dir directory to load recursively

example

var loader = require('auto-loader')
var modules = loader.load(__dirname);
console.log(modules);
/**
 { _path: '/Users/jwerle/repos/node-auto-loader/test/module',
  module1: [Getter/Setter],
  module2: [Getter/Setter],
  module3: [Getter/Setter] }
**/

Loader(dir)

creates a new Loader instance

  • dir - root director for loader

example

var loader = new Loader(__dirname)
// load the currenty directory
loader.load();
