File Structure

To get familiar with *.page.js files, we recommend to read the React Tour or Vue Tour, or to play with the boilerplates ($ npm init vite-plugin-ssr@latest).

For advanced apps we recommend a domain-driven file structure with multiple pages/ directories, while for basic apps we recommend a single pages/ directory.

Basic Apps

# Landing page (URL: `/`)
/pages/index/index.page.js
/pages/index/SomeComponentForLandingPage.js
/pages/index/**/* # More files specific to the landing page
# About page (URL: `/about`)
/pages/about/index.page.js
/pages/about/SomeComponentForAboutPage.js
/pages/about/**/* # More files specific to the about page
# Other pages (we recommend creating a directory for each page, e.g.
# `/pages/about/index.page.js` instead of `/pages/about.page.js`)
/pages/*/*.page.js

# Components shared by several pages
/components/*

# Code that specifies how our pages are rendered
/renderer/_default.page.server.js
/renderer/_default.page.client.js
/renderer/_error.page.js
/renderer/PageWrapper.js  # The root (React/Vue/...) component that wraps the `Page` component
/renderer/PageWrapper.css # exported by `/pages/**/*.page.js`.
/renderer/Header.js # Our website header
/renderer/Footer.js # Our website footer
/renderer/logo.svg # Our website logo

# Express.js/Fastify/... code
/server/*

Examples:

Domain-driven

# Marketing pages
/marketing/pages/index/index.page.js # Landing page (URL: `/`)
/marketing/pages/about/index.page.js # About page (URL: `/about`)
/marketing/pages/jobs/index.page.js # Jobs page (URL: `/jobs`)
/marketing/_default.page.route.js # Route to `/*` instead of `/marketing/*` (see below)

# Auth related code & pages
/auth/pages/signup/index.page.js
/auth/pages/login/index.page.js
/auth/components/UserInfo.js
/auth/db/fetchUser.js

# All code related to products
/products/pages/index/index.page.js
/products/pages/product/index.page.js
/products/pages/product/index.page.route.js
/products/db/fetchProduct.js
/products/db/fetchProductList.js

# Same as "Basic Apps" above
/renderer/*
/server/*
// /marketing/_default.page.route.js

// We route our marketing pages to `/*` instead of `/marketing/*`
export const filesystemRoutingRoot = '/'
// /product/pages/product/index.page.route.js

// We can use a Route String (or Route Function) to define parameterized routes
// and/or to override Filesystem Routing.
export default '/product/:productId'

Resluting route table:

PROJECT FILES                                    URL
/marketing/pages/index/index.page.js             /
/marketing/pages/about/index.page.js             /about
/marketing/pages/jobs/index.page.js              /jobs
/auth/pages/signup/index.page.js                 /auth/signup
/auth/pages/login/index.page.js                  /auth/login
/products/pages/index/index.page.js              /products
/products/pages/product/index.page.js            /product/:productId

Same as for basic apps, we recommend creating a directory for each page, e.g. /products/pages/index/index.page.js instead of /products/pages/index.page.js.
