Try any Node.js package right in your browser

This is a playground to test code. It runs a full Node.js environment and already has all of npm’s 400,000 packages pre-installed, including hotloadify with all npm packages installed. Try it out:

hotloadify lists no main file and has no index.js, so it can't be directly required. If this is a mistake, please let us know. It may however contain internal files that you can require manually:

require("browserify/package.json"); // browserify is a peer dependency. // require("hotloadify/[??]")

This service is provided by RunKit and is not affiliated with npm, Inc or the package authors.

hotloadify v0.0.5
