The Revealing Module Pattern

This pattern is the same concept as the module pattern in that it focuses on public & private methods. The only difference is that the revealing module pattern was engineered as a way to ensure that all methods and variables are kept private until they are explicitly exposed; usually through an object literal returned by the closure from which it’s defined.


  • Cleaner approach for developers
  • Supports private data
  • Less clutter in the global namespace
  • Localization of functions and variables through closures
  • The syntax of our scripts are even more consistent
  • Explicitly defined public methods and variables which lead to increased readability


  • The same as Module Pattern
