So far, each of the pages that we have rendered display their
viewModel data perfectly, but that pesky sidebar still remains blank. We're going to fix this by creating a few modules for the sidebar content by implementing them as helper modules. These helper modules will be used repeatedly by various parts of our application and don't necessarily belong to the
controller folder or the
server folder. So, we'll just create a new home called
helpers and store these modules there.
As we are just loading temporary fixture data into our view models, the data we set up in the helpers as well as the controllers will all be replaced with actual live data in the next chapter once we implement MongoDB.
