Dependency Management Got Awesome CommonJS and AMD Compliant dependency loader for modern web apps




The default interface for CommonJS, require() takes a single parameter as a string. Rarely (if ever) will require be used from the global namespace, but instead from within the context of a module. If the module has not been defined by the time require() is called, an exception is thrown.

AMD Interface

require(['one', 'two', 'three'], function (one, two, three) {});

AMD specifies an alternate syntax for require, which takes an array of dependencies, followed by a callback function which receives the list of paramters in the order they were listed. Key builtins of require, module, and exports won’t resolve to modules, but instead will resolve to their matching module counterparts. It’s behavior is very similar in design to require.ensure.
