How do I use this package?


Install using npm: npm --save-dev dojo-loader

Download from Git

Users can download and build directly from the repository if they wish.

From the loader root directory:

  1. npm install
  2. grunt dist

The "dist" subdirectory will contain the loader modules.

Use the loader

Use a script tag to import the loader. This will make require and define available in the global namespace.

<script src='node_modules/dojo-loader/loader.min.js'></script>

The loader can load both AMD and CJS formatted modules.

There is no need to use the Dojo 1.x method of requiring node modules via dojo/node! plugin anymore.
