What would you like to do?
Configurable module using closures in Node.js / CommonJS (ie. parametric modules)
module.exports = function(config) {
return function actualFunctionality(someArgument){
return doSomethingWith(config).and(someArgument);
module.exports = function(config) {
return {
functionalityOne: function(someArgument) {
return doSomethingWith(config).and(someArgument);
functionalityTwo: function(someArgument) {
return doSomethingElseWith(config).and(someArgument);
var config = loadConfiguration("config.js");
var someModule = require("./some-module")(config);
var someObjectModule = require("./some-object-module")(config);

Can you provide an example of what might be in config.js?
