How to include scripts located inside the node modules folder

0 votes

I have Bootstrap inside my node_modules folder. Now for the production version of the website, how would I include the Bootstrap script and CSS files located inside the node_modules folder? Does it make sense to leave Bootstrap inside that folder and do something like the following?

<script src="./node_modules/bootstrap/dist/bootstrap.min.js"></script>

Or would I have to add rules to my gulp file which then copy those files into my dist folder? Or would it be best to let gulp somehow completely remove the local bootstrap from my HTML file and replace it with the CDN version?

Hello @kartik,

I would use the path npm module and then do something like this:

var path = require('path');
app.use('/scripts', express.static(path.join(__dirname, 'node_modules/bootstrap/dist')));

NOTE: we use path.join to make paths joining using system agnostic way, i.e. on windows and unix we have different path separators (/ and )

Hope this is helpful!!
Thank you!!
