Verquire-cli: versioned require

Installs Node.js modules for use with verquire.

Getting started


npm i -g verquire-cli

This creates a global install of verquire CLI.

Creating verquire directory structure

Create a packages.json file with the spec of modules and their versions you want to install, e.g.:

    "mongodb": ["2.0.33", "2.0.30"],
    "async": ["1.0.0", "0.9.0"]

Create root directory for module installation:

mkdir ~/_verquire

Run the tool to install modules from spec:

verquire install -s ~/packages.json -e ~/errors.json ~/_verquire

Upon successful completion, you can set VERQUIRE_DIR=~/_verquire environment variable and use the verquire module in your Node applications to load versioned Node.js modules, e.g.:

var mongo = require('mongodb@2.0.33');

Update package specs

You can update package specifications by adding the latest versions of Node.js modules available on NPM to it. Assuming your ~/packages.json as before, just run:

verquire update-spec -s ~/packages.json -o ~/new_packages.json

The ~/new_packages.json will contain a specification of the same modules as in ~/packages.json, but with the latest version of each module from NPM added.

This is also a good way to bootstrap the first revision of the package spec. Create a ~/packages.json file that lists module names without any version information, e.g.:

    "mongodb": [],
    "async": []

then run verquire update-spec on it to populate it with the latest versions of these modules from NPM.
