Crosstalk packaging for Node.js projects
Latest commit f409d15 Feb 5, 2013 @tristanls tristanls 0.1.1


Crosstalk packaging for node.js projects built on top of browserify.

crosstalkify uses an extension to browserify that is implemented in this fork.


Write an entry.js with require()s in it:

// use relative requires
var foo = require( './foo' );

// use Crosstalk requires
var self = require( 'self' );

// or use modules installed by npm into node_modules/
var uuid = require( 'prefixed-uuid' );

// global `crosstalk` variable is available
crosstalk.on( 'some.message', function () {
  crosstalk.emit( 'some.message.response' );

Now you can use crosstalkify command to build a worker file for upload that takes entry.js as it's entry point:

crosstak-project$ crosstalkify -o worker.js

All of the modules are included in the final worker.js, browserify-style.

worker.js is now ready for upload to Crosstalk Swarm along with it's package.json.


Usage: crosstalkify {OPTIONS}

  --outfile, -o    Write the crosstalkify bundle to this file.
                   If unspecified, crosstalkify prints to stdout.               
  --directory, -d  Project directory to crosstalkify.
                   The project directory is the one with package.json in it.
                   If unspecified, current working directory will be used.      
  --help, -h       Show this message    


For more information on what can be expected to work, see browserify.


With npm do:

npm install -g crosstalkify


npm test
