Options

path

String for defining the path where the file is located.

shim({
  boostrap: {
    path: './node_modules/bootstrap-sass/assets/javascripts/bootstrap.js',
  }
})

name

As an alternative to path, you can specify module names which go through the same process of module name resolution as any other module.

shim({
  boostrap: {
    name: 'bootstrap-sass/assets/javascripts/bootstrap',
  }
})

imports

Configuration for defining dependencies. You can provide a module name, an array of them, or configuration objects for richer definitions. With objects you can define import aliases as well as globals.

When defining a configuration object with a module name as well as a global name, the module name is imported and also written to the global object.

The following example does a few things.

  1. Defines the specific file to be used when the module bootstrap is imported by another module.
  2. It defines a dependency on jquery, which causes jquery to be laoded first and brought in as a dependency.
  3. It creates a local variable called jQuery which points to jquery.
shim({
  boostrap: {
    path: './node_modules/bootstrap-sass/assets/javascripts/bootstrap.js',
    imports: [{
      as: 'jQuery',
      name: 'jquery'
    }]
  }
})

// The result is something like:
// jQuery = require('jquery');

You can also just import something from the global object.

shim({
  boostrap: {
    path: './node_modules/bootstrap-sass/assets/javascripts/bootstrap.js',
    imports: [{
      as: 'jQuery',
      global: '$'
    }]
  }
})

// The result is something like:
// jQuery = global['$'];

This following example expands on the previous examples by writing jquery to the global object with names $ and jQuery.

shim({
  boostrap: {
    path: './node_modules/bootstrap-sass/assets/javascripts/bootstrap.js',
    imports: [{
      as: 'jQuery',
      global: ['$', 'jQuery'],
      name: 'jquery'
    }]
  }
})

// The result is something like:
// jQuery = global['$'] = global['jQuery'] = require('jquery');

exports

Configuration for exporting globals and local variables as modules for other modules to import. You can provide a module name, a configuration object, or array of configuration objects for richer definitions. When defining objects, you can specify export aliases as well as global names to export.

When defining a configuration object with a local variable name as well as a global name, the variable name is also written to the global object.

In the following example, bootstrap exports the local variable jQuery.Modal as a module with the name Modal. Consequently, modules will be able to import Modal.

shim({
  boostrap: {
    path: './node_modules/bootstrap-sass/assets/javascripts/bootstrap.js',
    imports: [{
      as: 'jQuery',
      name: 'jquery'
    }]
    exports: [{
      as: 'Modal',
      name: 'jQuery.Modal'
    }]
  }
})

// The result for the export is something like:
// module.exports['Modal'] = jQuery.Modal;

The following example is a tweak to the previous example where bootstrap exports jQuery.Modal from the global object as a module with the name Modal.

shim({
  boostrap: {
    path: './node_modules/bootstrap-sass/assets/javascripts/bootstrap.js',
    imports: [{
      name: 'jquery',
      as: 'jQuery'
    }]
    exports: [{
      as: 'Modal',
      global: 'jQuery.Modal'
    }]
  }
})

// The result for the export is something like:
// module.exports['Modal'] = global['jQuery.Modal'];

The following example exports Modal and writes to the global object.

shim({
  boostrap: {
    path: './node_modules/bootstrap-sass/assets/javascripts/bootstrap.js',
    imports: [{
      name: 'jquery',
      as: 'jQuery'
    }]
    exports: [{
      as: 'Modal',
      name: 'jQuery.Modal',
      global: 'jQuery.Modal'
    }]
  }
})

// The result for the export is something like:
// module.exports['Modal'] = global['jQuery.Modal'] = jQuery.Modal;
