NodeJS dependency injection – Zander


Having worked on Java and Spring for almost a decade, my programs are naturally inclined towards using dependency injection. Recently, I started using NodeJS for developing one of our initiative and I felt modularizing my code instead of building one monolithic program. Soon, I realized that in order to keep my modules loosely coupled with each other, I need to use dependency injection and I started searching for framework. While I tumbled across many frameworks, which claims to provide Dependency Injection, none of them really fit to the expectation that I had. Also I came across many posts emphasizing that NodeJS programs do not require separate Dependency Injection frameworks and one can easily tweak require method to achieve desired results. I personally, didn’t like the suggestions and hence I thought of developing one of my own – Zander.
