Atlassian Connect Express (ACE) - What is the function of each file created when using the Node.js f

 What is the function of each file created when using the Atlassian Connect Express (ACE) Node.js framework. Im very new to this and I followed the tutoial at https://developer.atlassian.com/cloud/jira/platform/build-a-jira-add-on-using-a-framework/ and am now trying to modify my plugin to do what i want and I dont even know where to start or where to put my code there is so many files and No explanation to what the function of each of them is. There is another tutorial using the same framewrk to make a hipchat plugin which has a much better explanation. Is there something like this for JIRA. Here is the hipchat link: https://developer.atlassian.com/hipchat/tutorials/getting-started-with-atlassian-connect-express-node-js

I think the tutorial you mentioned is assuming you are familiar with Connect and approaches that from JIRA's perspective. This tutorial might be more useful to understand the building blocks of a Connect add-on: https://developer.atlassian.com/static/connect/docs/latest/tutorials/connect-basics.html
