Find out how to import a JavaScript module dynamically

Have you ever felt the need to load a JavaScript module dynamically?

Maybe you’re trying to load something from a folder but you don’t know the name of the folder, you generate it dynamically.

But doing something like

import test from folder + '/test.js'

or

import test from `${folder}/test.js`

does not work.

You need to do a dynamic import, in this way:

const test = await import(folder + '/test.js')

I wrote more about this relatively new feature of JavaScript in JavaScript Dynamic Imports.

Are you intimidated by Git? Can’t figure out merge vs rebase? Are you afraid of screwing up something any time you have to do something in Git? Do you rely on ChatGPT or random people’s answer on StackOverflow to fix your problems? Your coworkers are tired of explaining Git to you all the time? Git is something we all need to use, but few of us really master it. I created this course to improve your Git (and GitHub) knowledge at a radical level. A course that helps you feel less frustrated with Git. Launching May 21, 2024. Join the waiting list!
