@all

I am trying to find the source code for how CommonJS modules are actually loaded. I have been using Node.js for almost a year and a half and still cannot say for sure how module loading actually works.

I have been to:


but I didn't see any links to source code. I would guess it's on Github somewhere?

please let me know, thanks!

Node has good documentation on how its module system works:

https://nodejs.org/api/modules.html

and you can find the Node source code here:

https://github.com/nodejs/node

There are a bunch of CommonJS implementations.

This is my most recent incarnation of a module loader that Tom Robinson started for running npm-compatible CommonJS in web pages (refresh to reload in dev + bundle for prod).
