Managing big modules

Custom modules don't let you use node's require function at runtime, but you can manage your sources in multiple files and bundle them into a single file before loading it in OSC.

The common pattern for this is using the browserify library:

1. define some variable in number.js

module.exports = 42

2. retrieve it in your main module file (main.js):

var num = require('./number.js')

module.exports = {
    init: function(){
        console.log(num) // 42
    oscInFilter: function(data){
        // etc

3. bundle your sources into custom-module.js:

browserify main.js -o custom-module.js --standalone module.exports
