[FEATURE REQUEST] Import external dependencies in Service Worker

See original GitHub issue

It seems you cannot import anything that is not local to the service-worker folder, and that is not an ES6 module. The config for rollup does not include any plugins to allow importing of CJS or AMD modules, and there is no way to change that config from the outside.

Use case: would want to use libs like localForage or in this case idb-keyval inside a service worker to queue requests while offline, as using IDB directly is a bit cumbersome and localStorage is not available. But for sure there will be other use cases as well.

FWIW I was able to get this working by using the rollup-plugin-node-resolve package like this.

Looks valid and intriguing. Could you pull together a PR that can be tested in some various scenarios?
