rootrequire

Require files relative to your project root.

Install

npm install --save rootrequire

Use

var
  root = require('rootrequire'),
  myLib = require(root + '/path/to/lib.js');

Why?

  • You can move files around more easily than you can with relative paths like ../../lib/my-lib.js
  • Every file documents your app's directory structure for you. You'll know exactly where to look for things.
  • Dazzle your coworkers.
