Since projects are quite different from one another, v8n offers multiple ways to use it in your project. This will hopefully allow you to use the library in your project with ease.

<script> include

For use in your static HTML you might not want to whip up a complex building pipeline with npm packages or you may just want to test v8n before you put it in your project. This is easier using the good old <script> tag in your .html files. The best way to achieve this is by referencing the library from a CDN. Services like unpkg and jsdelivr offer great speed and offer multiple versions of v8n.

<!-- From UNPKG -->
<script src=""></script>

<!-- Or from jsDelivr -->
<script src=""></script>

This approach will make the function v8n() available globally within the HTML so that you can call it from anywhere.


For large projects and those that aren't simple static websites you will need a different solution than a CDN. Of course v8n is distributed via NPM, so it's a breeze to install it as a dependency and get started right away.

npm install --save v8n
# or
yarn add v8n

In order to make it easy for you to use, v8n is distributed as a CommonJS library. If you're particularly futuristic, a native ES6 module is also included.

import v8n from 'v8n';
// or
const v8n = require('v8n');


All builds are available from the dist/ folder in source control or through the npm module at v8n/dist/....

  • AMD (v8n.amd.js)
  • CommonJS (v8n.cjs.js) - default import from v8n npm module
  • UMD (v8n.umd.js, v8n.min.js)
  • IIFE (v8n.browser.js, v8n.browser.min.js)
  • ES-Module (v8n.esm.js)
  • Untranspiled ES6 (v8n.esm.browser.js, v8n.esm.browser.min.js)
  • System (v8n.system.js)
