To require a file, just use the require() function. var foo = require('./foo.js'); These files may have dependencies of their own. Browserify will build a dependency graph and bundle it into a single file that you just have to put in a script tag. <html> <body> <script src="bundle.js"></script> </body> </html> See More
While it's not too hard to create npm package for an existing library, it means maintaining it when the library updates. While most libraries are now on npm, many client side specific libraries are not. It's possible to require local files instead, at the expense of not having npm managed version control. See More
After installing Brunch the next step is to load a skeleton from git.io/skeletons. This step is as easy as installing another plugin from the npm registry, just point Brunch to the path of the required skeleton/generator then wait for it to work out its magic. Next, run brunch build then wait for a second or two and voila! The project is ready. See More
According to speed benchmarks, Brunch is one of the fastest tools around for compiling files. According to the authors of Brunch the reason behind this speed is that it recompiles only the changes that were made to an app and performs extensive caching of the app's code. See More
RequireJS is awesome for bundling and managing dependencies in an async manner. But the server-side needs neither of this killer features. Because of this it's not as good if your building a library that should work on both client and server (i.e. PouchDB). See More
This isn't really a bundler. It is more of a loader, but there are better ones out there. See More
Brian Genisio's Experience
The RequireJS module loader is extremely well documented. So no matter whether you're a pro at JS based web development or just a newbie, you will find the documentation very helpful whenever you're stuck or just starting out. Everything is well-defined and logically placed in proper sections in a manner such that it is very easy to understand. See More
One of the best advantages of RequireJS over Browserify is that you don't need a nodejs environment to get started. Just "require" your dependencies and it takes care of loading them. By contrast, Browserify requires a running NodeJS implementation so you can build your one monolithic file, then you can push the file to your static web server. See More
