Little helper to make node.js require relative to your project root

When working on a node.js project with subfolders you might find it difficult to remember the correct relative path to include a common module or library which is not published on npm. Using this module you just need to remember your own project directory structure and make all require absolute to the project root directory

Build Status

install

npm install rootpath

BEFORE

// from $HOME_PROJECT/lib/math/
var myLib = require('../myLibrary');
var myUtils = require('../../utils/myUtils');
var myTest = require('../../test/myTest');

AFTER

// from $HOME_PROJECT/lib/math/

require('rootpath')();

var myLib = require('lib/myLibrary');
var myUtils = require('utils/myUtils');
var myTest = require('test/myTest');
