WorkerGlobalScope.importScripts()

The importScripts() method of the WorkerGlobalScope interface synchronously imports one or more scripts into the worker's scope.

Syntax

importScripts(path0)
importScripts(path0, path1)
importScripts(path0, path1, /* ... ,*/ pathN)

Parameters

A comma-separated list of string objects representing the scripts to be imported. These paths are relative to html document base URL.

Return value

None (undefined).

Exceptions

NetworkError

Imported scripts were served without a text/javascript MIME type or without one of the permitted legacy JavaScript MIME types.

Examples

If you had some functionality written in a separate script called foo.js that you wanted to use inside worker.js, you could import it using the following line:

importScripts('foo.js');

importScripts() and self.importScripts() are effectively equivalent — both represent importScripts() being called from inside the worker's inner scope.
