I encounter so many problems when i use require() to get a whole file into another. so i made a reseach and realized i could change my file extension to .mjs and use import{}. but it gets difficult when i get to this particular video. because i can't import all functions from the profile.js file into the router.js file. i get an idea to set "type":"module" in my json package but they were no json package in the files i downloaded treehouse. please some one should help me because it gets so annoying .

Hey there khaper bas22 :wave:

I've never taken this course specifically but if you need a package.json file in the folder you're working in, you can just run the npm init command in your terminal. Make sure your at the desired directory by using the cd "change directory" command then run it. You could also skip all the set up questions by adding the -y flag npm init -y.

If this doesn't help, can you post what the errors you're encountering are saying?
