Hello I have a node module that sends email
-----------------------------------------------------------------

var nodemailer = require("nodemailer");

var app = express();

var smtpTransport = nodemailer.createTransport("SMTP",
    {
    service: "Gmail",
    auth: {
       user: "person@Gmail.com",
        pass: "passval"

    }
});

------------------------------------------------
I would like to save the credentials in a separate json file

File:  security.json

  { "user": "person@Gmail.com",
    "pass": "passval"
  }

-------------------------------------------------

var nodemailer = require("nodemailer");
var credentials = require("./security.json");

var app = express();

var smtpTransport = nodemailer.createTransport("SMTP",
    {
    service: "Gmail",
    auth: {
       user: credentials.user,
        pass: credentials.pass

    }
});
