NodeJS module to create polyfill bundles tailored to individual user-agents

Install

npm install polyfill-library --save

Usage

const PolyfillLibrary = require('polyfill-library');
const polyfillLibrary = new PolyfillLibrary;

const polyfillBundle = polyfillLibrary.getPolyfillString({
	uaString: 'Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; MSIE 7.0; Windows NT 6.0; en-US)',
	minify: true,
	features: {
		'es6': { flags: ['gated'] }
	}
}).then(function(bundleString) {
	console.log(bundleString);
});

API

polyfillLibrary = new PolyfillLibrary([polyfillsPath])

Create a PolyfillLibrary instance.

  • @param {String} [polyfillsPath] - The folder location on the file system where the polyfill sources exist. Defaults to the location of the polyfill sources which come bundled with the polyfill-library module.

polyfillLibrary.listAllPolyfills()

Get a list of all the polyfills which exist within the collection of polyfill sources.

Returns a Promise which resolves with an array of all the polyfills within the collection.

polyfillLibrary.describePolyfill(featureName)

Get the metadata for a specific polyfill within the collection of polyfill sources.

  • @param {String} featureName - The name of a polyfill whose metadata should be returned.

Returns a Promise which resolves with the metadata or with undefined if no metadata exists for the polyfill.

polyfillLibrary.getOptions(opts = {})

Create an options object for use with getPolyfills or getPolyfillString.

  • @param {object} opts - Valid keys are uaString, minify, unknown, excludes, rum and features.
  • @param {Boolean} [opts.minify=true] - Whether to return the minified or raw implementation of the polyfills.
  • @param {'ignore'|'polyfill'} [opts.unknown='polyfill'] - Whether to return all polyfills or no polyfills if the user-agent is unknown or unsupported.
  • @param {Object} [opts.features={}] - Which features should be returned if the user-agent does not support them natively.
  • @param {Array<String>} [opts.excludes=[]] - Which features should be excluded from the returned object.
  • @param {String} [opts.uaString=''] - The user-agent string to check each feature against.
  • @param {Boolean} [opts.rum=false] - Whether to add a script to the polyfill bundle which reports anonymous usage data.

Returns an object which has merged opts with the defaults option values.

polyfillLibrary.getPolyfills(opts)

Given a set of features that should be polyfilled in 'opts.features' (with flags i.e. {<featurename>: {flags:Set[<flaglist>]}, ...}), determine which have a configuration valid for the given opts.uaString, and return a promise of set of canonical (unaliased) features (with flags) and polyfills.

  • @param {object} opts - Valid keys are uaString, minify, unknown, excludes, rum and features.
  • @param {Boolean} [opts.minify=true] - Whether to return the minified or raw implementation of the polyfills.
  • @param {'ignore'|'polyfill'} [opts.unknown='polyfill'] - Whether to return all polyfills or no polyfills if the user-agent is unknown or unsupported.
  • @param {Object} [opts.features={}] - Which features should be returned if the user-agent does not support them natively.
  • @param {Array<String>} [opts.excludes=[]] - Which features should be excluded from the returned object.
  • @param {String} [opts.uaString=''] - The user-agent string to check each feature against.
  • @param {Boolean} [opts.rum=false] - Whether to add a script to the polyfill bundle which reports anonymous usage data.

Returns a Promise which resolves to an Object which contains the canonicalised feature definitions filtered for UA.

polyfillLibrary.getPolyfillString(opts)

Create a polyfill bundle.

  • @param {object} opts - Valid keys are uaString, minify, unknown, excludes, rum and features.
  • @param {Boolean} [opts.minify=true] - Whether to return the minified or raw implementation of the polyfills.
  • @param {'ignore'|'polyfill'} [opts.unknown='polyfill'] - Whether to return all polyfills or no polyfills if the user-agent is unknown or unsupported.
  • @param {Object} [opts.features={}] - Which features should be returned if the user-agent does not support them natively.
  • @param {Array<String>} [opts.excludes=[]] - Which features should be excluded from the returned object.
  • @param {String} [opts.uaString=''] - The user-agent string to check each feature against.
  • @param {Boolean} [opts.rum=false] - Whether to add a script to the polyfill bundle which reports anonymous usage data.
  • @param {Boolean} [opts.stream=false] - Whether to return a stream or a string of the polyfill bundle.

Returns a polyfill bundle as either a utf-8 ReadStream or as a Promise of a utf-8 String.
