Automodule

Node.JS module to auto include your sub-modules or to generate static include scripts.

Automodule will automatically determine if you are within your projects top level directory by search for lib or src directories, if so, the lib directory is all that is required. Otherwise each directory and file (other than index.js) will be required and exposed.

Installation

[sudo] npm install [-g] automodule

Usage

See examples directory.

Generate Static File

To generate the static text for the module simple run automodule from the project directory.

$ cd ./project/directory
$ ls
one      three    two
$ automodule
return module.exports = {one:require("./one"),three:require("./three"),two:require("./two"),};

Or you can specify an output file.

$ cd ./project/directory
$ ls
one      three    two
$ automodule index.js
$ cat index.js
return module.exports = {one:require("./one"),three:require("./three"),two:require("./two"),};

Use programmatically

You can also use automodule as a function within your scripts to include all submodules.

var automodule = require('automodule');
var options = {search:__dirname};

return module.exports = automodule(options);

Options

  • search - directory to look in for modules (String|default: process.cwd())
  • print - whether or not to include the modules or generate static string (Boolean|default: false)
  • recursive - how far deep to search for files, default is search directory only (Number|default: 1)
