It's started to get a little hard to read the events.controller.js file. There are a few functions in there with some code in between and the file is getting larger.

We'll be using what's known as the revealing module pattern to clean up our code a bit. This is where we return an object literal with names that map to the functions we'll need.

For instance, we are using:

Table of Contents

    // export this object
    module.exports = {
      showEvents: showEvents,
      showSingle: showSingle,
      seedEvents: seedEvents
    function showEvents(req, res)...
    function showSingle(req, res)...
    function seedEvents(req, res)...

    This cleans up our code a bit and lets us easily view what's going on in this file.
