Universal Module Definition for use in automated build systems

  • simple synchronous wrapping of a string
  • optional wrapping of a "stream" with genuine streaming
  • return style module support
  • CommonJS support
  • prevents internal UMDs from conflicting

Build Status Dependency Status NPM version

Source Format

In order for the UMD wrapper to work the source code for your module should return the export, e.g.

function method() {
  //code
}
method.helper = function () {
  //code
}
return method;

For examples, see the examples directory. The CommonJS module format is also supported by passing true as the second argument to methods.

API

umd(name, [commonJS = false], [source])

The name should the the name of the module. Use a string like name, all lower case with hyphens instead of spaces.

If CommonJS is true then it will accept CommonJS source instead of source code which returns the module.

If source is provided and is a string, then it is wrapped in umd and returned as a string. If it is not provided, a duplex stream is returned which wraps the modules (see examples/build.js).

Both commonJS and source are optional and can be provided in either order.

umd.prelude(module, [commonJS = false])

return the text which will be inserted before a module.

umd.postlude(module, [commonJS = false])

return the text which will be inserted after a module.
