Why using views directory and not public in node project


#1

Hi,
Is it important to put index.html in [views] directory or can I put all my files (including index.html) in [public] directory changing node to serve this index files ?

you can put it in any directory, sure - as you said, you’d just need node to send the correct file location. typically we put these files in a “views” folder to separate it from actual static files like js and css which we keep in “public”. it’s purely organizational.
