YUI Loader

Processes dependencies and dynamically loads script and css for YUI and external modules.

Development

The Loader build provides a Makefile for easy building. The Makefile contains the following targets:

  • all - Runs build then test (the default)
  • build - A passthrough to ant all (requires nodejs and python)
  • meta - Runs the scripts/meta_join.py to build the meta data (requires python)
  • check - Runs the scripts/meta_check.js to check meta-data for inconsistencies (requires nodejs)
  • test - Runs a series of NodeJS based CLI tests (requires nodejs with yuitest installed)
  • gallery - Fetches and updates the meta-data with the latest gallery build (requires nodejs)

Testing

npm -g i yuitest

There is one set of automated CLI tests that can be run with make test. This will do a simple Loader call for a module and then check the Loader's sorted array for that module. A very simple smoke test to determine if Loader is functioning properly.

There is an advanced test under tests/server. This test will attempt to load every yui3 module from one of these places:

  • STATIC local static files
  • COMBO local combo handler
  • LOADER local combo handle after fetching loader
  • STAR use star YUI().use('*') with a dynamic script generated on the server
  • RLS A local RLS server (not supported until YLS is released)

To run these tests, cd tests/server

npm -g i yui3 express combohandler

export STAR=1; ./server.js
export LOCAL=1; export STAR=1; ./server.js
export LOCAL=1; export STAR=1; export COMBO=1; ./server.js
export LOCAL=1; export STAR=1; export COMBO=1; export LOADER=1; ./server.js #The normal test to run
export LOCAL=1; export STAR=1; export COMBO=1; export RLS=1; ./server.js
export LOCAL=1; export STAR=1; export COMBO=1; export LOADER=1; export RLS=1; ./server.js
