node.js – Importing unnamed files with NodeJS

Question:

I'm creating a file structure in an application where each directory contains an "index" file. This index file takes the name of my directory to improve readability. Ex:

foo
|--foo.js    // <- index
|--bin.html
|--bar
|  |--bar.js // <- index
   |--bin.html

With that, the structure that will be used for a require() when importing any file will always be something like

const foo = require('./foo/foo');
const bar = require('./foo/bar/bar');

I'm looking for some way to create a file without the naming, and that NodeJS understands for the import, it would be something like:

foo
|--.js // <- sem nome = arquivo da pasta
|--bin.html

So I could work with files similar to namespace's…

Is there any way to do this with NodeJS?

Answer:

You can use foo/index.js and require('./foo') (this is more prudent and quite common). Or you can add a package.json to the foo directory and give the main any name.

eg.

foo/package.json

{"main": "qualquer-coisa.js"}

main.js

require('./foo') // vai dar require em './foo/qualquer-coisa.js'

The complete algorithm is at: https://nodejs.org/api/modules.html#modules_folders_as_modules

But it doesn't do that , it does n't go with the conventions much.

better just do

foo
|--index.js
|--bin.html

require('./foo')
