Modules
    • 10.1 Always use modules (import/export) over a non-standard module system.
    • 10.2 Do not use wildcard imports.
    • 10.6 In modules with a single export, prefer default export over named export.
      • Interpretation: multiple exports allowed
  • Confusing as hell
    • ESM vs CommonJS vs ES6
If using export default use import var from module:
export const foo = 42
export default 21;
If you want the 21, use import bar from './input';
import barImport from './input';
console.log(barImport); // 21
const barRequire = require('./input');
console.log(barRequire);
/*
{
foo: 42,
default: 21,
}
*/

export const types = () => {}
is different from
export function types() { }

Goals
CommonJs
module.exports = ...
var module = require('module')
AMD
define(['dependency1'], function(dependency1
Load synchronously
Asynchronous Module Definition
UMD
Universal Module Definition
ESM
