Module

A DocType will always belong to a module, to enable easier grouping of related models. Frappe comes with a lot of built-in modules. For e.g

  1. Core - contains doctypes like DocType, DocField, Report, System Settings, etc
  2. Desk - contains doctypes like ToDo, Event, Note, Kanban Board, etc
  3. Email - contains doctypes like Email Account, Newsletter, Email Group, etc

Modules also helps in grouping of code files in directories. The controller files generated by a DocType will live in it's respective Module directory.
