Do you really want a traditional MVC pattern? That’s generally considered a bit passé. If you are developing something new then I would go with the component approach (ala React, Angular 2 and beyond, Vue etc).

I ran this command:

With MVC, I think V=views and C=routes, and I'd need to create a dir for M. Does that sound about right?

Some frameworks are opinionated and some aren't so it depends if you are
going to end up fighting conventions or not. I think just about any
framework with an MVC design pattern will group like code/objects
together and I even do that for my RPG stuff (which has no opinion).
Node itself I don't think cares about structure. It is what ever is
familiar to you, but in most cases my guess is that you'll follow either
a logical grouping of like code:




Or use a naming convention: model1.js, view1.js, controller1.js under a
single folder. My Java and Rails projects follow the convention above;
A structured, opinionated layout. My Node projects follow the latter
unless they use a framework that has it's own opinionated structure.

I'd say with complex apps, MVC by folder groupings may be easier. For
small apps I'd keep it simple....
