Find Entry Points

NPM version

Find the entry points in a set of JavaScript files.

Install

Supports Node.js versions 10 and above.

$ npm i find-entry-points

Huh?

Example 1

Given a sync or async iterable of paths to the JavaScript files with the following dependencies between them (a directed arrow from a.js to b.js means a.js imports b.js):

The findEntryPoints function would return [['a.js']] because a.js is the entry point of the above JavaScript library or application (it is not imported by any JavaScript file). The findSingleEntryPoints function would return ['a.js'].

Example 2

Given a sync or async iterable of paths to the JavaScript files with the following dependencies between them:

The findEntryPoints function would return [['a.js'], ['f.js'], ['g.js']] (order not guaranteed) because a.js, f.js, and g.js are all not imported by any JavaScript file. Notice that it is possible to have a disconnected dependency graph. The findSingleEntryPoints function would return ['a.js', 'f.js', 'g.js'] (order not guaranteed).

Example 3

Given a sync or async iterable of paths to the JavaScript files with the following dependencies between them:

The findEntryPoints function would return [['a.js'], ['g.js']] (order not guaranteed). Notice that cycles are possible because imports are cached. The findSingleEntryPoints function would return ['a.js', 'g.js'] (order not guaranteed).

Example 4

Given a sync or async iterable of paths to the JavaScript files with the following dependencies between them:

The findEntryPoints function would return [['a.js'], ['g.js', 'h.js', 'i.js']] (order not guaranteed). Notice that this is the first example where an inner array contains more than one element. This is because g.js, h.js, and i.js are all valid entry points for their graph component. The findSingleEntryPoints function would return ['a.js'] (order not guaranteed).

Usage

Suppose the JavaScript files with the following dependencies between them are all in a src directory and that h.js imports i.js via a dynamic import:

import { findEntryPoints, findSingleEntryPoints } from 'find-entry-points'
import globby from 'globby'
import * as swc from '@swc/core'
 
const main = async () => {
  // `globby.stream` returns an async iterable of file paths
  console.log(await findEntryPoints(globby.stream('src/**/*.js')))
  //=> [['src/a.js'], ['src/g.js', 'src/h.js', 'src/i.js']]
 
  // `findSingleEntryPoints` ignores cyclic entry points
  console.log(await findSingleEntryPoints(globby.stream('src/**/*.js')))
  // => ['src/a.js']
 
  console.log(
    await findEntryPoints(globby.stream('src/**/*.js'), {
      followDynamicImports: false
    })
  )
  //=> [['src/a.js'], ['src/i.js']]
 
  console.log(
    await findSingleEntryPoints(globby.stream('src/**/*.js'), {
      followDynamicImports: false
    })
  )
  // => ['src/a.js', 'src/i.js']
 
  // Use the `transform` option to transform non-standard syntax
  // like JSX to standard ECMAScript so that imports can be parsed
  console.log(
    await findEntryPoints(globby.stream('src/**/*.js'), {
      transform: async ({ path, code }) =>
        (
          await transform(code, {
            filename: path,
            jsc: { parser: { jsx: true } }
          })
        ).code
    })
  )
  //=> [['src/a.js'], ['src/g.js', 'src/h.js', 'src/i.js']]
 
  console.log(
    await findSingleEntryPoints(globby.stream('src/**/*.js'), {
      transform: async ({ path, code }) =>
        (
          await transform(code, {
            filename: path,
            jsc: { parser: { jsx: true } }
          })
        ).code
    })
  )
  //=> ['src/a.js']
 
  // Use the `parseImports` option to parse imports yourself
  console.log(
    await findEntryPoints(globby.stream('src/**/*.js'), {
      parseImports: async ({ followDynamicImports, file }) => {
        const { path, read } = file
 
        // Read the file if you want
        const code = await read()
        const importedFilenames = yourFancyImportParser(code)
 
        return importedFilenames
      }
    })
  )
}
 
main()

See the commented type definitions for clarification.

How?

The package uses parse-imports (another package of mine) to construct a dependency graph, which is a directed graph, from the given set of JavaScript files. Then the package finds the strongly connected components of the dependency graph using Tarjan's strongly connected components algorithm, and constructs a directed acyclic graph from the strongly connected components. Finally, the package returns the strongly connected components corresponding to the vertices with in-degree 1 in the new directed acyclic graph.
