require("history").createBrowserHistory` instead of `require("history/createBrowserHistory")`


If you want to use the `history` package in your project, you can either import it like this: `require("history/createBrowserHistory")` or like this: `require("history").createBrowserHistory`. Both ways will work, but there is a slight difference between them.

Using `require("history/createBrowserHistory")`

If you use the first method, you are importing the `createBrowserHistory` function directly from the `history` package. This means that you can only use this one function from the package and cannot access any other functions or variables that might be included in the package.

const createBrowserHistory = require("history/createBrowserHistory");
const history = createBrowserHistory();

Using `require("history").createBrowserHistory`

If you use the second method, you are importing the entire `history` package and then accessing the `createBrowserHistory` function from within it. This means that you can access all the other functions and variables that are included in the package, and not just the one you have imported.

const history = require("history").createBrowserHistory();
const { createMemoryHistory } = require("history");
const memoryHistory = createMemoryHistory();

So, both methods are valid, but depending on your needs, one might be better suited than the other. If you only need one function from the package, you can use the first method to keep your code more concise. However, if you need to use multiple functions from the package, it might make more sense to import the entire package and access the functions from within it.
