13.3.0

updates the version for the assert package

https://github.com/substack/node-browserify/pull/1611

13.2.0

allow configuring transformKey from module-deps https://github.com/substack/node-browserify/pull/1670

13.1.1

boost performance by memoizing calls to path.relative()

https://github.com/substack/node-browserify/pull/1544

13.1.0

exposes opts.dedupe and --no-deupe to optionally turn off deduping behavior: #1581

13.0.1

Internal

#1552, #1555: Use native Array.isArray and drop isarray dep. (@kt3k)

13.0.0

This release bumps the buffer dependency to v4, which has one possible breaking change:

  • The buffer.toArrayBuffer() method on Buffer instances has been removed.

(This is probably not a problem for 99.9% of users.)

This API was added in node v0.11.8 and removed before v0.12 was released. It was added to browserify's buffer implementation but was never removed when v0.12 was released. buffer v4 removes it so we have full parity with node.js.

Going forward, to get an ArrayBuffer from a node.js-style Buffer, users should just use buffer.buffer. This works because Buffer is a subclass of Uint8Array in both the browser and node.js (since v3).

On the plus side, this release also includes:

  • Performance improvements to buffer that increase the speed of some buffer methods by as much as 30%!

12.0.2

normalizes module paths on windows to consistently use /

https://github.com/substack/node-browserify/pull/1424#issuecomment-170143099

12.0.1

adds the previously failing tests and a small change necessary for transforms to be applied properly for symlinked packages

https://github.com/substack/node-browserify/pull/1392

12.0.0

Node support changes: now testing against the latest node (currently 4.2.1). node 0.8 is no longer supported, and iojs isn't actively tested.

Stream3 everywhere! Everything has been updated to use streams3.

Sourcemaps charset now uses an = instead of a :. This fixes certain issues with Chinese characters in sourcemaps. See #753.

module-deps has been updated to fix root transforms on symlinked modules. See https://github.com/substack/module-deps/pull/99.

stream-http, the module that provides http support, dropped IE8 support. If you depend on this, see https://github.com/jhiesey/stream-http#ie8-note.

Removed builtins and commondir – both unused dependencies.

11.2.0

When bundleExternal is set to false, process and buffer are now correctly excluded. Also, using --igv via the CLI now works. That also means that --bare and --node actually insert __filename and __dirname.

https://github.com/substack/node-browserify/pull/1361

11.1.0

adds a '.' to extensions if it wasn't added

https://github.com/substack/node-browserify/pull/1380

11.0.1

The callback form of bundle() uses the returned output stream instead of the pipeline so that the 'end' event will fire on the bundle instance.

https://github.com/substack/watchify/pull/249#issuecomment-126061169

11.0.0

streams3

The readable-stream dependency was updated to ^2.0.0. This package is inserted into bundles as require('stream'). Bundles will now get the latest streams implementation from io.js/node.js core, instead of an old version from node.js 0.11.x. Go forth and stream ALL THE DATA without fear!

shiny new HTTP package

John Hiesey rewrote the http-browserify package to create stream-http, an implemention of http that supports streaming in modern browsers. Before v11.0.0, in most situations when you used http.get or http.request, the entire request would buffer in memory until the download was complete, and a single 'data' event was emitted with the entire response as a string.

stream-http uses the Fetch API and various browser-specific XHR extensions to make binary streaming http requests work in as many browsers as possible.

The following browsers support true streaming, where only a small amount of the request has to be held in memory at once:

  • Chrome >= 43 (using the fetch api)
  • Firefox >= 9 (using moz-chunked-arraybuffer responseType with XHR)

The following browsers support pseudo-streaming, where the data is available before the request finishes, but the entire response must be held in memory:

  • Safari >= 5
  • IE >= 10
  • Most other Webkit-based browsers, including the default Android browser

Older browsers will work, without streaming support. There is no support for IE6 or IE7.

Compared to http-browserify, it is not necessary to set options.responseType. The responseType property of the XHR object will be set automatically depending on what features are detected in the browser (although see options.mode in the readme to see how you can optimize this choice manually).

The response is a streams3 stream, so all data is passed as Buffers, unlike the variable types provided by the 'data' event in http-browserify. This behavior tries to mimic the node core http module as closely as possible.

If you're brave, go ahead and give v11.0.0 a try today!

10.2.6

uses the non-sync version of fs.realpath

10.2.5

fixes an issue with symlinked files executing multiple times

https://github.com/substack/node-browserify/issues/1063 https://github.com/substack/node-browserify/pull/1318

https://github.com/substack/node-browserify/pull/1268

10.2.3

fixes an errant space in the --no-browser-field flag alias that kept it from working

https://github.com/substack/node-browserify/issues/1286

10.2.2

fix tests for tap@^1.1.0 (and update tap)

https://github.com/substack/node-browserify/pull/1276

10.2.1

housekeeping - removed unused code

https://github.com/substack/node-browserify/pull/1273

10.2.0

remove unnecessary "isDedupe" json check. this was a hack-fix for watchify <=2.4.

https://github.com/substack/node-browserify/pull/1244

fixes for the "noParse" path matcher.

https://github.com/substack/node-browserify/pull/1259

add syntax check cache. this speeds up rebuilds (like when using watchify).

https://github.com/substack/node-browserify/pull/1253

update to browser-pack@^5.0.0 - includes several fixes related to source maps.

https://github.com/substack/node-browserify/pull/1257

10.1.3

Replace jsonstream with JSONStream

https://github.com/substack/node-browserify/pull/1252

10.1.2

Replace JSONStream with jsonstream Update deps to avoid jsonstream npm case problems

https://github.com/substack/node-browserify/pull/1247 https://github.com/substack/node-browserify/commit/1ca71e23

10.1.1

ensures that entry paths are always full paths

https://github.com/substack/node-browserify/pull/1248

10.1.0

adds --no-browser-field and opts.browserField = false behavior to turn off the package.json browser field. This is useful if you want to make a bundle with a target of node or some environment with shimmed node primitives.

A new alias --node sets --no-browser-field and --bare.

https://github.com/substack/node-browserify/pull/1240

10.0.0

Possibly Breaking Change

The ‘process’ dependency was updated to ~0.11.0, this module is inserted into bundles as the ‘process’ global/dependency. Previously, an unhandled error thrown in a ‘process.nextTick’ task would prevent any subsequent tasks from running, forever. The task queue now recovers from this condition, but may do so on a future browser tick. As part of this update, ‘process.nextTick’ now accepts variadic arguments, passed to the task, added to io.js in 1.8.1.

Other changes

  • Escapes JavaScript-unsafe characters from JSON. #1211
  • Removes ‘-v’ shortcut for ‘--version’ (conflicted with watchify) #1222
  • Updated ‘defined’, ‘punycode’, ‘module-deps’, and ‘xtend’ dependencies to reduce install size #1230

9.0.8

https://github.com/substack/node-browserify/pull/1187#issuecomment-89044008

9.0.4

handles the colon better for drive paths and improves the test suite for windows users

https://github.com/substack/node-browserify/pull/1182 https://github.com/substack/node-browserify/pull/1183

9.0.3

fixes a problem with deduping for json files.

This caused problems for running bundle() multiple times on the same instance with caching turned on, which people reported encountering using watchify.

https://github.com/substack/node-browserify/issues/1101 https://github.com/substack/watchify/issues/143

9.0.2

fixes a bug where transforms in opts.transform were getting run twice

https://github.com/substack/node-browserify/issues/1124 https://github.com/substack/node-browserify/pull/1128

9.0.1

fixes exposed files persisting across bundles

https://github.com/substack/node-browserify/pull/1030

9.0.0

updates browser-pack which uses umd 3.0.0. This sligtly changes how --standalone $name works.

https://github.com/substack/browser-pack/pull/49 https://github.com/substack/node-browserify/pull/1105

Also some tidying up around handling expose that module-deps can do now:

https://github.com/substack/node-browserify/pull/1077

and some fixes to regressions involving the 'package' event:

https://github.com/substack/node-resolve/issues/69

Upstream changes in resolve/browser-resolve mean that require('foo/bar') works better with the package.json browser field. You can do something like:

{
  "browser": { "./bar": "whatever.js" }
}

8.1.3

uses / instead of \ for source map url separators on windows https://github.com/substack/node-browserify/pull/1096

8.1.2

resolves mappings from the browser field for externals

https://github.com/substack/node-browserify/pull/1100

8.1.1

fixes an issue with resolving exposed packages relative to the basedir

https://github.com/substack/node-browserify/pull/1059 https://github.com/substack/node-browserify/issues/1039 https://github.com/daiweilu/browserify-broken-require

8.1.0

use assert@1.3, which fixes a bug in assert.deepEqual related to argument ordering, and ensures assert.deepEqual continues working in Chrome 40 and Firefox 35.

use process@0.10, which adds process.umask() and a faster process.nextTick() implementation.

https://github.com/substack/node-browserify/pull/1018 https://github.com/substack/node-browserify/pull/1041

8.0.3

passes opts.debug through to insert-module-globals so that is can insert inline source maps for its modifications

8.0.2

ensures that transforms always execute in the order they were added

https://github.com/substack/node-browserify/pull/1043

8.0.1

fixes some file path leaks in deduped deps

https://github.com/substack/node-browserify/pull/994 https://github.com/substack/node-browserify/issues/951

8.0.0

In previous releases, the deduping logic was over-zealous about how it handled module references for duplicates. The prior behavior would detect when the dependency tree of a module matched an existing module in addition to having the exact same source code to share an instance. This was originally designed to support libraries like threejs that internally use instanceof checks that don't usually work very well across multiple packages. This feature didn't pan out and didn't work very well in practice.

Later, a better way of deduping emerged after some unrelated tweaks to browser-pack to support source introspection for webworkers. The reflection form of deduping using implicit arguments is now the only kind.

The deduping instance feature resulted in this bug: https://github.com/substack/node-browserify/issues/1027 which created very surprising results when duplicate files were in use.

7.1.0

uses the new buffer@3.0.0, which passes node's own buffer test suite

https://github.com/substack/node-browserify/pull/1040

7.0.3

allows modules to be bundled with local paths and exposed at the same time

https://github.com/substack/node-browserify/pull/1033

7.0.2

fixes the global transform getting added each re-bundle

https://github.com/substack/node-browserify/issues/1026

7.0.1

fixes rebundling (used by watchify) when transforming

https://github.com/substack/node-browserify/issues/1012

also fixes https://github.com/substack/node-browserify/issues/1015

7.0.0

Global transforms are now resolved to an absolute path before walking files. This fixes some bugs with local module versions taking precedence over global transforms and unresolvable global transforms spanning system directories.

This is a small breaking change since now transform objects live in the pipeline between the record and deps phases. This should only affect programs that expect records in the pipeline to only contain file objects.

6.3.4

fixes a bug setting placeholder filenames on stream inputs to be properly unique

6.3.3

fixes an issue with the expose property when opts.fullPaths is enabled

This issue commonly crops up in watchify.

https://github.com/substack/node-browserify/pull/991 https://github.com/substack/node-browserify/issues/850

6.3.2

updates regexps that test for absolute and relative paths to work better on windows

https://github.com/substack/node-browserify/pull/948

6.3.1

fixes ignoreTransform for the case where transforms were given in package.json as an array

https://github.com/substack/node-browserify/pull/966

6.3.0

uses noParse for better parity with module-deps

https://github.com/substack/node-browserify/pull/954

6.2.0

fixes #!shebang syntax when --bare is in effect by adding an unshebang phase to the pipeline

https://github.com/substack/node-browserify/issues/943

6.1.2

fixes the behavior for multiple external bundles

https://github.com/substack/node-browserify/issues/933

6.1.1

fixes a circular dependency issue with readable-stream

6.1.0

allows transforms to be ignored throughout the entire bundle

https://github.com/substack/node-browserify/pull/945

6.0.3

fixes a bug where module insert-module-globals would trigger too soon and conflict with other transforms

https://github.com/substack/node-browserify/issues/867 https://github.com/substack/node-browserify/issues/895 https://github.com/substack/node-browserify/issues/855

6.0.2

upgrades process to 0.8.0 https://github.com/substack/node-browserify/pull/906

6.0.1

respects opts.expose in require() https://github.com/substack/node-browserify/pull/907

6.0.0

resolves source map maths relative to the base url. This should help with more reproducible builds.

https://github.com/substack/node-browserify/pull/923

Version 6 is a tiny but breaking change to how source map paths work.

Now all source map paths are relative by default. This makes it easier to have deterministic debug builds across different systems and directories. If browserify is installed in a project-local directory, all the source map paths will be self-contained and relative against that location in node_modules.

fixes the changelog link https://github.com/substack/node-browserify/pull/835

5.0.1

adds an untracked test

5.0.0

At a glance:

  • extensible internal labeled-stream-splicer pipeline
  • bundle() - no longer accepts opts, callback gets a buffer
  • b.deps(), b.pack(), opts.pack, opts.deps are gone
  • can call bundle() multiple times on the same instance
  • a better --noparse matcher
  • id labeling integer index based instead of hash based
  • derequire removed for performance reasons
  • .external(bundle) has been removed (for now)
  • semicolon at end of output
  • hashing is gone so expose: true or explicit expose id is required for doing multi-export bundles

Version 5 is a big rearranging of browserify internals with more places for external code to hook into the build pipeline.

These changes are mostly aligned around the theme of making it easier for external code to interface with browserify internals in a less hacky way.

pipeline

Now the core of browserify is organized into a labeled-stream-splicer pipeline. This means that user code and plugins can hook into browserify by pushing themselves onto the pipeline at a label:

var browserify = require('browserify');
var through = require('through2');
var bundle = browserify();

bundle.pipeline.get('deps').push(through.obj(function (row, enc, next) {
    console.log('DEP:', row.id);
    this.push(row);
    next();
}));

User code can remove existing transforms or add its own hooks. These are the labeled sections you can get a handle on with bundle.pipeline.get()

  • 'record' - save inputs to play back later on subsequent bundle() calls
  • 'deps' - module-deps
  • 'unbom' - remove byte-order markers
  • 'syntax' - check for syntax errors
  • 'sort' - sort the dependencies for deterministic bundles
  • 'dedupe' - remove duplicate source contents
  • 'label' - apply integer labels to files
  • 'emit-deps' - emit 'dep' event
  • 'debug' - apply source maps
  • 'pack' - browser-pack
  • 'wrap' - apply final wrapping, require= and a newline and semicolon

Because there is now a proper pipeline, opts.pack, opts.deps, b.deps(), and b.pack() are removed.

bundle()

Big changes have been made to the bundle() function. All options have been moved out of the bundle(opts) form and into the browserify constructor. Before there was an unclear split between which arguments went into which function.

You can now call bundle() multiple times on the same instance, even in parallel. This will greatly simplify the caching system under watchify and will fix many long-standing bugs.

The callback to bundle(cb) is now called with cb(err, buf) instead of cb(err, string) as before.

labeling

The former hashing system is removed, in favor of file paths rooted at the opts.basedir, or the cwd.

This removal means that browserify can be much more consistent about applying integer ids, which avoids exposing system paths in bundle output.

Hashes are used internally for deduping purposes, but they operate on the source content only.

others

The matching logic in the --noparse feature is greatly improved.

derequire has been taken out of core, which should speed up --standalone.

4.2.3

reverts 4.2.2 due to breaking some existing use-cases

4.2.2

fixes a bug applying transforms to symlinked files by resolving the realpath first https://github.com/substack/node-browserify/pull/831

4.2.1

SECURITY NOTICE

Make sure your installation of browserify is using syntax-error@1.1.1 or later. there was a security vulnerability where a malicious file could execute code when browserified.

The vulnerability involves breaking out of Function(), which was used to check syntax for more informative errors. In node 0.10, Function() seems to be implemented in terms of eval(), so malicious code can execute even if the function returned by Function() was never called. node 0.11 does not appear to be vulnerable.

Thanks to Cal Leeming [cal@iops.io] for discovering and disclosing this bug!

4.0

Here are the new breaking changes in browserify v4. Most users should be unaffected.

readable-stream

require('stream') is now using readable-stream (but the classic-mode shim persists in stream-browserify just like in node core). This should result in much smaller files for all modules using a similar-enough version of readable-stream as browserify itself. Other modules should be relatively unaffected.

removed .expose()

Removal of the previously-deprecated and obscure bundle.expose().

took out implicit reading from stdin

Previously if you invoked the browserify command without any entry files as arguments and stdin was a tty, stdin would be implicitly added as an entry file. This feature was causing problems so it has been removed. https://github.com/substack/node-browserify/issues/724#issuecomment-42731877

more!

In the run-up to the 4.0, module-deps got an extensive rewrite with minimal test changes. Mostly it was just getting really messy because it was a giant ball-of-mud closure instead of a more straightforward prototype-based implementation with more clearly-defined methods.

The module-deps rewrite was triggered by system paths showing up in build output but was fixed in 3.46.1. The solution actually didn't end up needing changes in module-deps as originally anticipated but module-deps was in dire need of a cleanup.

3.46.1

fixes a bug exposing the host path of the process module in the bundle output https://github.com/substack/insert-module-globals/pull/32

3.46.0

allows array arguments in b.require(), b.add(), and b.external() https://github.com/substack/node-browserify/pull/742 from @spacepluk

3.44.1

fixes the recursion error many people were getting https://github.com/substack/node-browserify/pull/713 Thanks to @MattMcKegg for isolating the bug!

3.44.0

upgrades module-deps to 1.10.0 to make all the packageFilter dir argument pathways are consistent

3.43.0

lets b.transform(opts, t) args to be swapped around since opts is more common as a last argument

3.42.0

passes through the dir parameter in opts.packageFilter from module-deps 1.10.0 https://github.com/substack/node-browserify/pull/731

3.0

A new browserify version is upon us, just in time for the FESTIVE SEASON during which we in the northern hemisphere at mid to high latitudes huddle for warmth around oxidizing hydrocarbons!

There are 2 big changes in v3 but most code should be relatively unaffected.

shiny new Buffer

feross forked the buffer-browserify package to create native-buffer-browserify, a Buffer implementation that uses Uint8Array to get buf[i] notation and parity with the node core Buffer api without the performance hit of the previous implementation and a much smaller file size. The downside is that Buffer now only works in browsers with Uint8Array and DataView support. All the other modules should maintain existing browser support.

Update: a shim was added to in 3.1 for Uint8Array and DataView support. Now you can use Buffer in every browser.

direct builtin dependencies

In v3, browserify no longer depends on browser-builtins, in favor of depending on packages directly. Instead of having some separate packages and some files in a builtin/ directory like browser-builtins, browserify now uses only external packages for the shims it uses. By only using external packages we can keep browserify core focused purely on the static analysis and bundling machinery while letting the individual packages worry about things like browser compatibility and parity with the node core API as it evolves.

Individual, tiny packages should also be much easier for newcomers to contribute packages toward because they won't need to get up to speed with all the other pieces going on and the packages can have their own tests and documentation. Additionally, each package may find uses in other projects beside browserify more easily and if people want variations on the versions of shims that ship with browserify core this is easier to do when everything is separate.

Back when we were using browser-builtins there was a large latency between pushing out fixes to the individual packages and getting them into browserify core because we had to wait on browser-builtins to upgrade the semvers in its package.json. With direct dependencies we get much lower latency for package upgrades and much more granular control over upgrading packages.

Here is the list of packages we now directly depend on in v3:

That's it! If you're bold enough to give v3 a spin, just do:

npm install -g browserify
