Used Require.js to make the application modular. It provides better dependency management with asynchronous loading of scripts.
No real definitive reason, I find it to be the most natural way to import libraries and code in nodejs (prior to ES6 / import).
The RequireJS package manager is used by various web applications and services to manage dependencies on 3rd party libraries.
Very nice way to structure a project, as long as you know it will not be a hybrid app.
