Frequently Asked Questions

What does interpret do?

Interpret is a helpful JavaScript package that serves as a dictionary of file extensions and their associated module loaders. It is primarily used by Liftoff to automatically require dependencies for configuration files, and by rechoir for registering module loaders. This means it recognizes file types based on their extensions and knows which module loader to implement for them. This application simplifies the process of working with different file types in your JavaScript project.

How do you use interpret?

To use the interpret package, you first need to use the exported extensions or jsVariants object to determine which module should be loaded for a given file extension. The process is as follows:

  1. If the value is null, do nothing.
  2. If the value is a string, try to require it.
  3. If the value is an object, try to require the module property. If successful, call the register property (a function) with the required module as the first argument. An optional second argument could be provided to replace the default configuration for a hook.
  4. If the value is an array, iterate over it, attempting step 2 or 3 until one of the attempts does not throw.

Here's an example on how to use interpret:

const { extensions } = require('interpret');

const extension = '.ts'; // the file extension

// check if the extension is supported
if(Object.keys(extensions).includes(extension)) {
  const loader = extensions[extension];

  if(typeof loader === 'string') {
    require(loader);
  } else if(typeof loader === 'object') {
    const module = require(loader.module);
    if(loader.register) {
      loader.register(module);
    }
  } else if(Array.isArray(loader)) {
    for(let i = 0; i < loader.length; i++) {
      try {
        if(typeof loader[i] === 'string') {
          require(loader[i]);
        } else if(typeof loader[i] === 'object') {
          const module = require(loader[i].module);
          if(loader[i].register) {
            loader[i].register(module);
          }
        }
        break;
      } catch (error) {
        continue;
      }
    }
  }
}

Please note, this module does not depend on any of the loaders it recommends, therefore, end-users are required to install the hooks they wish to use for the file types they want to use.

Where are the interpret docs?

Documentation for the Interpret package can be found in the READme file in the repository page at git+https://github.com/gulpjs/interpret.git. More specific, the API section of the READme gives a detailed explanation of the available properties in the module, including extensions and jsVariants, and how to use them to specify and load different file types.
