resolve-from

Resolve the path of a module like require.resolve() but from a given path

Install

$ npm install resolve-from

Usage

const resolveFrom = require('resolve-from');

// There is a file at `./foo/bar.js`

resolveFrom('foo', './bar');
//=> '/Users/sindresorhus/dev/test/foo/bar.js'

API

resolveFrom(fromDirectory, moduleId)

Like require(), throws when the module can't be found.

resolveFrom.silent(fromDirectory, moduleId)

Returns undefined instead of throwing when the module can't be found.

fromDirectory

Type: string

Directory to resolve from.

moduleId

Type: string

What you would use in require().

Tip

Create a partial using a bound function if you want to resolve from the same fromDirectory multiple times:

const resolveFromFoo = resolveFrom.bind(null, 'foo');

resolveFromFoo('./bar');
resolveFromFoo('./baz');
