opalrb-loader

Opal is a compiler for writing JavaScript in Ruby.

This package allows transpiling Ruby files using Opal and webpack.

Check out this blog post if you are interested in the project background.

npm version npm downloads Circle CI

Installation

npm install opalrb-loader --save-dev

Usage

Documentation: Using loaders

// webpack.config.js 
module: {
  loaders: [
    {
      test: /\.rb?$/,
      loader: 'opalrb-loader'
    }
  ]
}

Options

See Opal::Compiler options for possible options.

// webpack.config.js 
module: {
  loaders: [
    {
      test: /\.rb?$/,
      loader: 'opalrb-loader',
      query: {
        requirable: false,
        freezing: false,
      }
    }
  ]
}

OPAL_LOAD_PATH

By passing OPAL_LOAD_PATH environment variable to webpack, the loader will correctly resolve file other than relative path.

opalrb-loader is only bundled with compiler module. It left the decision on managing runtime, corelib or gems to developer.

See the example Rakefile for how to integrate using other Opal gems.

Compared to Opal::Builder

  • Relative require is correctly resolved.
  • require_trees is not yet implemented.
  • erb is not supported (which should be implemented as separate loader).

Known issues

  • First time compiling is relatively slow compared to Ruby one, use --watch option for webpack to speed up dev iteration.
  • Use require to load JS file is broken, but you can write as below to load JS module (webpack will correctly resolve it).
# Inside ruby file
`var $ = require("jquery")`
  • stdlib and some gems may not be correctly compiled, please file an issue if you encounter one.

Examples

It's under Examples folder.

  • simple: Basic setup without further dependency.
  • complex: Compile opal/corelib and other gems.

Development

  • npm install
  • npm run build_compiler to build compiler
  • npm start to compile & watch index.es6.js
