Hi, thanks for the reply, I read the documentation, but my question was about external module itself, not how to import or use it (which is documented there). I would love to see example helloworld node module source code and how it’s structured.

npm install supports installing packages from a variety of sources including
git, local folders, or local tarballs so your custom module does not have to be uploaded to the central
