NodeBB libraries not accessible in plugin?
I'm trying to follow the basic tutorial on writing nodebb plugins.
But I'm using
module.parent.require('./database')in my plugin but it isn't working.
It simply says:
Error: Cannot find module './database'
Can anyone point me to the issue?
I'd suggest using
@pitaj Thanks! That worked!
Do you think the docs should be updated to include that?
module.parent.requirealso works fine. It depends whether you are calling it from a dependent file, or from the main plugin library file.
Also, just FYI, the docs you used are the old docs, the new ones are at docs.nodebb.org
You can open an issue at github.com/nodebb/docs if you wish for a change to be made
