What is it?

Combine all node.js scripts into one file. Run it as a single executable, or online.

Features

  • Combine all scripts into one (shrinkwrap method)
  • Asynchronously load all scripts (browserify method)
  • express middleware

JS Example

var sardines = require("sardines"),
fs = require("fs");

sardines.shrinkwrap({
    entry: __filename
}, function(err, content) {
    fs.writeFile(__dirname + "/shrinkwrapped.js", content);
});

Express example

var server = require("express").createServer();
server.use(require("sardines").middleware({
    directory: __dirname + "/public"
}));
server.listen(8080);

In your browser, load a script and append one of the following query arguments: shrinkwrap, browserify, or wrap.

Like so:

http://localhost:8080/js/app.js?browserify # asynchronously loads ALL scripts vs loading into one
http://localhost:8080/js/app.js?shrinkwrap # loads all scripts into one
http://localhost:8080/js/app.js?wrap # wraps the script in a function so it doesn't pollute the global namespace
