Require Helper

Require helper allows for including ephemeral or "components" into your application. Right now it is mostly a experiment to see if this typeof data into Handlebar templates. The api is a bit rough right now but that should be ephemeral as well.

Usage

To get the helper injected into your instance of Handlebars require in the module and pass it the current require function and Handlebars.

var 
  Handlebars = require('handlebars');
 
require('handlebars-require')(require, Handlebars); 
// now you should have the require helper

In the template now you can do this.

{{require './path/to/component'}} {{!-- This is a referance to a js file --}}
<div class="component-container">
  {{MyComponent property=value}} {{!-- exported value is based of contructor.name --}}
</div>

Setting ephemeral helper name

{{require './path/to/component' exports="NamedComponent"}}
{{NamedComponent property=value}} {{!-- exports changed the ref --}}

What is a Component

Right now in the simplist form a component is a contructor that has a render function. This is loosly based off of Backbone views.
