Convert any code using rfile and derivatives so that it supports browserify.
This module is a plugin for browserify to parse the AST for
rfile calls so that you can inline the file contents into your bundles.
In addition to supporting
rfile, you can also use modules which internally use
rfile providing they meet the simple requirement of taking an object with
dirname property as their second argument and are listed in the array of valid file names modules in index.js. Currently this is:
- rfile - "require" static text files
- ruglify - "require" minified source code
- rhtml - "require" minified HTML
Even though this module is intended for use with browserify, nothing about it is particularly specific to browserify so it should be generally useful in other projects.
Example with Browserify
For a main.js
var rfile = ;var html = ;console;
And a robot.html
npm install rfileify into your project, then:
on the command-line
$ browserify -t rfileify example/main.js > bundle.js
now in the bundle output file,
var html = ;
var html = "<b>beep boop</b>";
require('rfile') turns into
undefined so you're not loading code you're never going to use).
or with the API
var browserify = ;var fs = ;var b = ;b;b;
A tiny command-line program ships with this module for easier debugging and if you just want this without any of the rest of browserify.
npm install rfileify -g rfileify --help
