    wrapit

    0.1.3 • Public • Published

    Webservice to wrap any web resource in a header and footer. Good for wrapping javascript files in require calls.

    Getting started

    npm install wrapit
    

    Command-line usage

     wrapit [options]
    

    This starts a wrapit web service using the specified command-line options.

    -p port to listen on (example, 85)
    -q suppress the help message
    

    Web service usage

    http://localhost/?url=http://codemirror.net/lib/codemirror.js&header=provide('CodeMirror',function(require,exports,module){&footer=exports.CodeMirror=CodeMirror;})&type=text/javascript&type=text/javascript

    There are four parts to this, ?url &header &footer &type. Let's break that up:

    http://localhost/
    **?url=**http://codemirror.net/lib/codemirror.js
    **&header=**provide('CodeMirror',function(require,exports,module){
    **&footer=**exports.CodeMirror=CodeMirror;})
    **&type=**text/javascript
    

    In this case, the url is http://codemirror.net/lib/codemirror.js, which gets wrapped in a 'provide' definition (taken from require-shim). Type signifies the mime type.

    Of course, you can use whatever require library you want. Also, you don't have to just wrap javascript files -- you can wrap css or html or anything else for that matter. wrapit doesn't care.

    Server-side usage

    require('http').createServer(function (req, res) {
    	require('wrapit').handleRequest(req, res);
    }).listen(port);	
    

    Run the Example

    There is an example.html file in the local directory, demonstrating how to run uglify-js in a web page without installing anything (even Node.js) on your local machine.

    Why might this be useful?

    This utility is designed to help a web developer quickly prototype namespaced javascript code, but there are probably other uses as well.
