urequire-rc-rxjs5-custom-build

Build custom editions of RxJS 5, with this uRequire ResourceConverter.

Intro

Build your own custom build of RxJS 5, with a custom Observable with added (patched) operators on streams (eg map, filter etc), along with static methods attached to Observable (like Observable.fromEvent) as you would expect, and other general features picking :-)

Use the specially build rxjs5-custom-build.js file as a module for your optimized RxJS 5 app builds, or release it as a separate npm module to be reused.

Why

The RxJS library is a hefty one, as it takes ~800K of code for the whole library.

There is no custom build at the moment, so here it is. Note how easy such a tool can be build using uRequire & ResourceConverters (check source/code/urequire-rc-rxjs5-custom-build.js).

How it works

In http://reactivex.io/rxjs/manual/installation.html#es6-via-npm it mentions

_To import only what you need by patching (this is useful for size-sensitive bundling):_    
    
    ```    
        import {Observable} from 'rxjs/Observable';
        import 'rxjs/add/operator/map';
             
        Observable.of(1,2,3).map(x => x + '!!!'); // etc 
    ```

This isn't so great but things get worse if you want to use a static method of Observable like fromEvent. You first have to
import { fromEvent } from 'rxjs/observable/fromEvent'; and then you need to either Observable.fromEvent = fromEvent; or you need to do a fromEvent(el, 'click') which is unnatural compared to the normal usage (i.e import Rx from 'rxjs' and then Rx.Observable.fromEvent(el, 'click'), which is how your app's source code is probably written as.

uRequire ResourceConverter for RxJS 5 builds your custom RxJS 5, aiming to behave exactly like the RxJS full build (but only with your selections).

How to use

You declare the options:

  • addOperators: which operators you want to be added (patched) to instances (eg ['map', 'filter',..]).

  • staticImports: which static methods you want to import and attach to Observable (eg ['fromEvent', ...]).

in the urequire config , eg :

  urequire: 
     ...
     path: 'src'
     dstPath: 'build'
     resources: [
       [ 'rxjs5-custom-build', {  // the options Object
            addOperators: [ 'map', 'filter' ]
            staticImports: [ 'fromEvent' ]
          }
       ]
     ]
 ...

Then, in your src/MyAppFile.js you can use you custom module simply like import Rx from './rxjs5-custom-build';, or simply make it your package.json's main and thus create you own custom distribution of RxJS 5.

The generated file is always named rxjs5-custom-build.js, so you need to have a file src/rxjs5-custom-build.js (at the root of src or what ever the path is) that is empty or with some comments - its contents don't matter. When you build, the build/rxjs5-custom-build.js (or wherever dstPath is in you project) will have the auto generated custom RxJS build code (in ES6 format only for now).

The generated file by default is in ES6, but you can easily convert to ES5 using urequire-rc-babeljs after the generation, for example:

    resources: [
    
        [ 'rxjs5-custom-build', {
            addOperators: [ 'map', 'filter' ]
            staticImports: [ 'fromEvent' ]
          }
        ],
        
        [ 'babeljs', {
           plugins: ['add-module-exports'],
           presets: ['es2015'] 
          }
        ]
    ]
