Different require proof of concept, abusing eval for the sake of clearer definitions




// Sample module libraries (would probably be in their own files)
someModules = { 
	testModule: {test: function(){console.log("test from someModule")}},
	anotherModule: { doStuff: function(){console.log("Doin stuffs!");}}
};

sampleRequire = function() {
	
	// Load the modules
	for (var i=arguments.length-2; i>=0; --i){

		// Create a local variable reference to the module
		eval ('var '+arguments[i]+' = someModules.'+arguments[i].toString());
	}

	// Redefine the programmer's function so that it has my local vars in its scope
	eval("var fn = "+arguments[arguments.length-1]);

	return fn;
}

// Main code...
sampleRequire( 'testModule', 'anotherModule',
 	function(){ 
		testModule.test();
		anotherModule.doStuff();
	}
)();

About andyortlieb

I often find myself figuring out some niche oddities, only to find myself stuck on those same problems a year later due to my wide yet thin activity in certain topics related to my career and hobbies. This blog is where I document these nuances (or nuisances) to ease my pain the second time around, and hopefully that of some other fellow desperate internet scouts.
