find files and paths using node.js require semantics

This module contains various functions to help you find paths and files using Node.js' require semantics.

Vinea is the latin word for vine.

Getting Started

Install the module with: npm install vinea

API

Vinea provides various functions to help with inspecting the fs, or to help with inspecting the require paths being used by modules.

file system introspection

findItem(itemName, itemType, currentPath, recursive, callback)

Find an item on the file system starting from the current path. If recursive is true, will continue walking up parent directories looking for the itemName.

  • itemName {String} - name of the item to look for
  • itemType {String} - file or directory
  • currentPath {String} - directory to start looking in
  • recursive {Boolean} - if true, walks up parent dir if item is not found
  • callback {Function}

Returns: {String} the path of the found item

findParentPath(path1, path2)

Find the common parent directory between two given directories.

  • path1 {String} - a directory
  • path2 {String} - another directory

Returns: {String} the common parent directory between both

findNodeModulesPath(currentPath, callback)

Finds the nearest node_modules directory from the given directory. If not found in current directory, walks up the parent dir until it finds it.

  • currentPath {String} - directory to start looking in
  • callback {Function}

Returns: {String} the location of the nearest node_modules directory.

findNodeModulePath(currentPath, moduleName, callback)

Given a module name like 'lodash', looks for a node_modules/lodash starting from the current directory. If none is found, walks up the parent dir until it finds one.

  • currentPath {String) - directory to start looking in
  • moduleName {String} - the name of the module to find
  • callback {Function}

Returns: {String} the path to the module on the file system

findNodeModuleMainEntry(modulePath, callback)

Given a path to a node_modules module, i.e., /Users/me/project/node_modules/lodash, this function finds the main entry point suitable for client side usage.

This function attempts to return the browser attribute from package.json if available, falling back on main and then index.js.

  • modulePath {String} - location of the module
  • callback {Function}

Returns: {String} entry point value from package.json

findPackageJson(currentPath, callback)

Finds the location of the the nearest package.json. If it can't find package.json in the current directory, walkis up the parent dir until it finds it.

  • currentPath {String} - directory to start looking in.
  • callback {Function}

openPackageJson(currentPath, callback)

Returns the contents of the nearest package.json. If it can't find package.json in the current directory, walkis up the parent dir until it finds it.

  • currentPath {String} - directory to start looking in
  • callback {Function}

Returns: {Object} JSON.parsed() contents of package.json

findWithRequireSemantics(currentPath, item, callback)

Finds the location of a require() dependency. i.e., require('a/b') can resolve to either b.js, or b/index.js.

  • currentPath {String} - directory to start looking in
  • item {String} - the require dependency
  • callback {Function}

Returns: {Object} contains a foundPath and statInfo attributes

openWithRequireSemantics(currentPath, callback)

Finds the location of a require() dependency. i.e., require('a/b') can resolve to either b.js, or b/index.js.

  • currentPath {String} - directory to start looking in
  • item {String} - the require dependency
  • callback {Function}

Returns: {Object} contains foundPath, statInfo, and contents attributes

require() dependency introspection

getModuleNameFromPath(path)

Given a filepath with, attempt to find a node_module in the path. i.e., /app/node_modules/lodash => lodash /app/node_modules/lodash/node_modules/foo => foo

  • path {String} - a file path

Returns: {String} name of the module

hasNodeModulesInPath(path)

Returns true if a file path has node_modules in it.

  • path {String} - a file path

Returns: {Boolean}

isNodeModuleRequire(requireDep)

Returns true if the require() dependency refers to a node_module.

i.e., require('lodash') => true require('lodash/array/map') => true require('./a') => false

  • requireDep {String}

Returns: {Boolean}

isNodeModuleMainRequire(requireDep)

Returns true if the require() dependency refers to the main entry point of a node_module.

i.e., require('lodash') => true require('lodash/array/map') => false

  • requireDep {String}

Returns: {Boolean}
