NodeJs Ioc Container & Lazy Dependencies Loading

Usage no npm install needed!

<script type="module">
  import nodejsIocContainer from '';



This project will be supported:

  • Ioc Container
  • Lazy Dependencies loading


Create a Container

A Container is a single unit of dependency handling. It registers dependencies and resolves them for dependency consumers.

var container = require('nodejs-ioc-container').getContainer();


Register a Dependency

container.register('connection', connection);

connection is either an object or a function that will return a connection object. You cannot register functions that will depend on other dependencies - this you can do with v1.0.0 -

Consume dependencies


Use get when you need to check if the dependency is registered, because get returns immediately.

container.get('connection', function(connection) {
    if (!connection) {
    } else {

In the above example, if the get is called before connection is registered, you will get null.


If you have a function that needs a connection, use

container.resolve('connection', function(connection) {/*use connection*/});

resolve also supports the "Array notation":

container.resolve(['connection', function (connection){/*use connection*/});

and, of course, the "dependable notation":

container.resolve(function(connection) {/*use connection*/});

tldr: if resolve gets a function as a first parameter, it will stringify/parse it to read the names of dependables you need.

Chain dependency providers

You can register functions that will depend on other dependencies and chain dependency providers. For example, if you cannot provide a database without obtaining a configuration first, you register your database provider in the following manner:

container.register('database',function (configuration) {
  //use the configuration to produce your database connection
  var database = createDatabase(configuration);
  //and finally
  return database;
