Import & Export

Import a Module/File

Unlike JavaScript, ReScript doesn't have or need import statements:

Reason (Old Syntax)ML (Older Syntax)JS Output
// Inside
let studentMessage = Student.message;

The above code refers to the message binding in the file Every ReScript file is also a module, so accessing another file's content is the same as accessing another module's content!

A ReScript project's file names need to be unique.

Export Stuff

By default, every file's type declaration, binding and module is exported, aka publicly usable by another file. This also means those values, once compiled into JS, are immediately usable by your JS code.

To only export a few selected things, use an interface file.
