How to Structure Folder Components

7 replies
Last updated: Mar 16, 2021
How do you guys structure your folder components? This is always a issue 😄 never happy about the outcome. I usually have a folder "components" and for instance a component Blog which is a folder and inside I have like BlogDetail, BlogOverview, BlogCard and a index.js where i export all the components. Wondering how you guys structure your projects?

Sounds a bit similar to the structure in Sara Vieira’s Opinionated React; which I do my best to follow.
Not because I think it’s entirely “correct”, but I was in need of conventions and it seemed as good as any!

Ha, we’ve had this discussion at work recently. I’ve trained my eye to look at the folder name so I don’t mind it.

How would you deal with this? Any suggestions?

I like the
approach because I know what the “root” element is in a folder which has multiple components related to the “root”. But yeah you’ve got to look one step backwards to know where you are, occasionally.

same here! I hate importing like this:
import BlogHeader from "components/BlogHeader/BlogHeader".

^^ I’ve seen this solved by having an
that just exports the root element. But then I don’t love having that file in every directory just for that purpose 😄
