What is the module pattern?
Benefits of the Module Pattern
The module pattern was originally developed to provide a way for public & private methods & properties which a class provides in oops. The module pattern has the following benefits:
The module pattern encapsulates and wraps public & private methods & variables and protects private ways and properties to leak in global scopes. This returns only public methods and public variables.
Module patterns enable all related functionalities and properties to be enclosed inside a single logical block, which is comparatively easier to update. Hence a well-developed module aids in reducing the dependencies on other parts of the codebase as much as possible.
The modules contain reusable code; hence the functionality enclosed as a module can be reused across the entire application, and there is no need to define the same functions at multiple points.
There are below several options to implement module patterns:
1) The Revealing Module Pattern
3) Asynchronous Module Definition (AMD)
4) ES2015 Modules
5) UMD (Universal Module Definition)

With module patterns, you can have your private functions and variables which can be referenced only within the module and can be referenced worldwide. These patterns are advanced object-oriented solutions to commonly occurring software issues.
