import.meta API

Deno supports a number of methods on the import.meta API:

  • import.meta.url: returns the URL of the current module.
  • import.meta.main: returns whether the current module is the entry point to your program.
  • import.meta.resolve: resolve specifiers relative to the current module.

import.meta.resolve Example

const worker = new Worker(import.meta.resolve("./worker.ts"));

The import.meta.resolve API takes into account the currently applied import map, which gives you the ability to resolve “bare” specifiers as well.

With such import map loaded…

  "imports": {
    "fresh": "https://deno.land/x/fresh@1.0.1/dev.ts"

…you can now resolve:

// resolve.js
$ deno run resolve.js
