for html files you don’t have to import them, they will be eagerly loaded even with mainModule set

#5

But in example of meteor create myapp --bare, it hase

// Main app
import "./main.html"

And then I would like to remove blaze to use static-html + vue

#6

Yes and when you have removed blaze, you no longer need to import the html.

Blaze templates are different because they need to be compiled into javascript, so when you import main.html in Blaze you are actually importing the compiled main.html.js
