This project is intended for use with the level eco-system. React Native's packager currently doesn't automatically inject browserified core node modules, like util, crypto, process, buffer, etc. Currently this module depends on several shims to mitigate the sadness. The alternative is to use react-native-webpack-server, which allows you to use browserified node core modules out of the box. Once React Native's packager allows the same functionality, this module's dependencies can be heavily pruned.
