AdonisJs. Routes refactoring

When creating a new adonis project you will have a single /start/routes.js file in which you could have all your Routes. But I think this is not an optimized way to handle Routes.

Consider a situation when you will create dozens of different routes: users, posts, links, customers, etc, ect. Even using resource approach:

Route
.resource('users', 'UsersController')
.middleware(['auth'])

will not solve the problem.

Solution is simple -> create routes folder with index.js file in it:

with required(“…”) in index.js file:

require('./auth');
require('./user');
require('./addresses');
require('./profiles');
...

Example of addresses route:

On each route creating you will create a separate file. Simple and effective 😉
