Rekuire NPM version

'rekuire' is basically node's 'require' without the relative paths!

It saves you TONS of time refactoring your code, and making it easily reusable. plus, it makes you code more readable = better!


to install, type

npm install rekuire

or add it to your package.json as a dependency.

Whats new?


  • fixed a bug that causes failures when scanning a package with higher os privileges (thanks Danny!)


  • added a method to ignore folders while searching the right files (for example, the js files in the server's static folder)


  • you can now rekuire file according to the relative path of the file
  • added support for index.js files inside a folder - can be retrieved by the folder path


  • added support for .coffee files and .json

How to use it?

instead of doing this:

var MyModule = require('../../../MyModule.js'); <-- yuck!

why not do this:

var rek = require('rekuire');
var myModule = rek('MyModule');

or that:

var myCoffee = rek('');
var myJson = rek('myJson.json');
var myModule = rek('src/api/MyModule');

in order to tell the scanner, not to scan specific folders

var mypath = rek.ignore('out', 'target', 'static/js');
// you should only do it once in your code

if you want to resolve only the file location, for example, when you want to use proxyquire.

var mypath = rek.path('MyModule');
// mypath = 'lib/classes/MyModule.js'

for more examples, I recommend you to checkout the spec file :)

what does it do?

when 'rekuire' is first loaded to the project, it scans the source files locations, so when you need them they are right there to use! no relative paths are needed! yeahy!
