What's a GitHub project without build badges? Build status

Jint.CommonJS is an extremely simple CommonJS-compatible module loader for the Jint .NET Javascript Engine. It's written in .NET core 2.0 and should be compatible with all .NET frameworks that Jint targets. It allows you to require JavaScript modules from other modules in the Jint interpreter using the familiar require function we all know and love.

Every loaded module is wrapped in the following closure:

(function(module, exports, __dirname, require))

...and thus module bodies are not globally scoped.

  • module points to the CLR module instance
  • exports points to the module's public API
  • __dirname is the directory that this module resides in
  • require is a function which loads other modules relative to this module's directory

The library is MIT licensed.

A note about Node.JS compatibilty

You are not able to load npm packages with Jint.CommonJS. Although the library loads modules in relatively the same format at NodeJS's Module specification, there are some important distinctions. The library does not support node_modules, or reading package.json files for modules.


  • require another JavaScript module from a JavaScript file with require('./module')
  • require JSON with require('./file.json')
  • require modules from other modules
  • A small but succinct unit test suite.

Using the library

  1. Import the project reference via NuGet, or by cloning and building the project directly
  2. Import the Jint.CommonJS namespace in your code
  3. Use the CommonJS() extension method on Jint.Engine to enable CommonJS functionality


The following example runs a main module from the C# program's current directory.

using Jint;
using Jint.CommonJS;

public static class Program
    public static Engine engine = new Engine();

    public static void Main(string[] args)
        // Creates a new Jint instance and runs the myModule.js file in the program's
        // current working directory.
        Jint.Native.JsValue exports = engine.CommonJS().RunMain("./myModule");


exports.value = require('./myOtherModule');
