process-dataset

Allow to share native data between submodules using process.dataset global variable

How it works

At the first run it creates special object with simple interface. Any other require in submodules just takes and exports that object. Object stored in a global object process in dataset property. So any submodule at any level can use common dataset.

Example

// /app.js
var http = require('http');
var storage = require('process-dataset');
var server = require('lib/server.js');

// /lib/server.js
var storage = require('process-dataset');
var server = http.createServer(function (req, res) {
  if (storage.get('auth')) {
    res.end('You have authorized: '+storage.auth);
  } else {
    res.end('Nothing to show');
  }
});
server.listen(8880);

storage.set('server', server);
module.exports = server;

// /lib/sessions.js
var storage = require('process-dataset');
var server = storage.get('server');
