Package description

What is import-fresh?

The import-fresh npm package is used to import a module afresh, bypassing the cache that Node.js uses for require calls. This is particularly useful when you need to ensure that you're getting a fresh version of the module, for instance, when you're testing or when you want to reload configuration files that may have changed.

What are import-fresh's main functionalities?

Bypass require cache

This feature allows you to bypass the require cache and freshly import a module. It's useful when you want to reload a module to reflect any changes made to it since it was first imported.

const importFresh = require('import-fresh');
const freshConfig = importFresh('./config');
