node-bindings

Helper module for loading your native module's .node file

This is a helper module for authors of Node.js native addon modules. It is basically the "swiss army knife" of require()ing your native module's .node file.

Throughout the course of Node's native addon history, addons have ended up being compiled in a variety of different places, depending on which build tool and which version of node was used. To make matters worse, now the gyp build tool can produce either a Release or Debug build, each being built into different locations.

This module checks all the possible locations that a native addon would be built at, and returns the first one that loads successfully.

Installation

Install with npm:

$ npm install --save bindings

Or add it to the "dependencies" section of your package.json file.

Example

require()ing the proper bindings file for the current node version, platform and architecture is as simple as:

var bindings = require('bindings')('binding.node') // Use your bindings defined in your C files bindings.your_c_function()

Nice Error Output

When the .node file could not be loaded, node-bindings throws an Error with a nice error message telling you exactly what was tried. You can also check the err.tries Array property.

Error: Could not load the bindings file. Tried: → /Users/nrajlich/ref/build/binding.node → /Users/nrajlich/ref/build/Debug/binding.node → /Users/nrajlich/ref/build/Release/binding.node → /Users/nrajlich/ref/out/Debug/binding.node → /Users/nrajlich/ref/Debug/binding.node → /Users/nrajlich/ref/out/Release/binding.node → /Users/nrajlich/ref/Release/binding.node → /Users/nrajlich/ref/build/default/binding.node → /Users/nrajlich/ref/compiled/0.8.2/darwin/x64/binding.node at bindings (/Users/nrajlich/ref/node_modules/bindings/bindings.js:84:13) at Object.<anonymous> (/Users/nrajlich/ref/lib/ref.js:5:47) at Module._compile (module.js:449:26) at Object.Module._extensions..js (module.js:467:10) at Module.load (module.js:356:32) at Function.Module._load (module.js:312:12) ...

The searching for the .node file will originate from the first directory in which has a package.json file is found.
