Numb

The easiest way to manage your node.js application's dependencies. With only one require.

Nodefile:

use('express')
use('underscore', { as : '_', version : '1.1.4' })

app.js:

require('numb')

var app = express.createServer()

app.get('/:name?', function(req, res) {
  compiled = _.template("Hello <%= name %>")
  res.send(compiled({ name : req.params.name }))
})

app.listen(4000)

And finally:

$ numb
$ node app.js
$ open http://localhost:4000/me

Installation

You guessed it,

$ npm install numb

Tutorial

  1. Using DSL, describe all your dependencies in Nodefile.
  2. Add a simple require('numb'), your last require!
  3. Run numb, which will install required versions locally.
  4. That's it!
