Hi folks,

I never thought to ask or look this up before (I mainly just went with whatever works), but when would you use require vs import? I noticed in some videos and code repositories some people use require and some use import. From the bits of pieces that I've gathered import seems like the newer standard, is that right?
 
Solution
import is part of ES6-standard and more used in modern scripts. Require is something you can see a lots of specially in server side, older scripts.

Personally i like require more, but i am gettin old fart here.
