I have a question about node.js
Is it possible to have multiple server.js files
Like: You have one "main" server.js which routes you to another directory and there is another server.js handling socket.io or stuff like that?
To be more specific :
I want to build a Game with WebSocket's and want to have one server.js which routes you to the game page and then on the "Game Page" I want it to connect it to "another" server.js and handle stuff like websockets, login and stuff like that. Or do i have to have everything in one server.js file
I heard about the modules.export function but I don't think this is what I am looking for.
Both are possible. If I understood right, you want to have a web server, and a socket.io server.
You can either do both in the same file:
'use strict'; const express = require('express'), socket= require('socket.io'), app = express(), io = socket(); //... app.listen(80); io.listen(12345);
In different files:
'use strict'; const express = require('express'), app = express(); //... app.listen(80);
'use strict'; const socket= require('socket.io'), io = socket(); //... io.listen(12345);
