Could you someone explain this part of the code: module.exports.get = get;?
Could you someone explain this part of the code:
module.exports.get = get;?
I understand that we have to 'share' it or export it to use it in another file. But why we use get twice? Export.get is the method and on the right side is the function itself? I'm a little confused and would like to make it clear.
Thanks in advance

Here is a great article on using module.exports and exports in Node.js: https://www.sitepoint.com/understanding-module-exports-exports-node-js/
You don't have to use the same value as in module.exports.get = get, but it's common naming convention to use the same value.
