OPTIONAL

Node-optional allows you to optionally 'require' modules without surrounding everything with 'try/catch'. Usage and installation is easy and this module itself is very easy and straightforward to use.

Install

  npm install optional

Usage

var optional = require("./optional");

var express = optional("express");
var fs = optional("fs");

console.log("express: " + express);
console.log("fs: " + fs);

Output:

express: null
fs: [object Object]
