ColdBox Elixir Browserify Support

Step 1: Install

First ensure, that you're ColdBox Elixir version is up to date. It should be at least version 2 or newer.

npm install coldBox-elixir-browserify --save-dev

Step 2: Use It

// Gulpfile.js

var elixir = require( "coldBox-elixir" );

elixir( function( mix ) {
    mix.browserify( "main.js" );
    // mix.browserify(srcPath, outputPath, srcBaseDir, browserifyOptions)
} );

This will compile, by default, resources/assets/js/main.js to includes/js/main.js. Should you require a different source directory, either provide an optional path as the third argument to mix.browserify, or begin your path with ./. This will instruct Elixir to ignore any default base directories.

elixir( function( mix ) {
    mix.browserify( "./app/assets/js/main.js" );
} );

The same is true for the output path.

elixir( function( mix ) {
    mix.browserify( "./app/assets/js/main.js", "public/build/bundle.js" );
} );

Custom Options

The fourth argument to the browserify method is an options object that will be passed through to the browserify task.

elixir( function( mix ){

 mix.browserify( 'main.js', 'includes/javascripts/main.js', 'public/js', {} );

} );

Custom Transformers

While Browserify ships with the Partialify and Babelify transformers, you're free to install and add more if you wish by doing 2 simple steps:

  1. Install the transformer

npm install aliasify --save-dev

  1. update your Gulpfile.js by pushing the new transformer configuration via the elixir.config.js.browserify.transformers array:
elixir.config.js.browserify.transformers.push( {

 name : 'aliasify',

 options : {}

} );

elixir( function( mix ){

 mix.browserify( 'main.js' );

} );
