Readme

babel-plugin-import-to-require
Remaps import statements to require() statements. This is mostly useful alongside later static analysis tools (like glslify), where Babel import inter-op can often make static analysis difficult or impossible.
In:
import foobar from 'foo';
console.log(foobar());

Out:
const foobar = require('foo');
console.log(foobar());

:warning: This only handles basic import specifiers (i.e. the above format), and does not support things like wildcard imports, destructuring, namespaces, etc. Feel free to submit a PR if you need this feature.

Installation

$ npm install babel-plugin-import-to-require

Usage

The modules option can be used to narrow down to a specific list of modules to remap, ignoring all other import statements. If no parameter is specified, all import statements will be remapped.

Via .babelrc (Recommended)

.babelrc
{
  "plugins": [
    [ "import-to-require", { "modules": [ "foo" ] } ]
  ]
}

Via CLI

$ babel --plugins import-to-require script.js

Via Node API

require('babel').transform('code', {
  plugins: [
    [ 'import-to-require' , { modules: [ 'foo' ] } ]
  ]
});
