How do I use app.get(" * ") with modules?

Right now, I have a project like this:


File1, file2, etc have an Express route in them, and I import them in ./controller with require statements. I want controller to be a very clean file - it just has imports and function calls, nothing else - no Express routes.

Now, I want to set up a 404 page with app.get("*",.... I tried putting it at the end of ./file3, but it didn’t work - do i have to create a new file just for 404 requests for it to work?

It is the same way the other endpoints are.

I’m not sure you can do it with hidden files but this worked for me in the root of the project

app.get('/filename/' + '*', function(request, response) {
  response.sendFile(__dirname + '/views/404.html'); 

Haha sorry, the dots just represent the file structure, not the actual file names.
