  • State of the Web: Bundlers & Build Tools
    17 projects | | 23 Jan 2022
    For a large part of the web, bundlers did not exist. To include scripts, most people just linked to the library on a CDN like CDNJS or Google Hosted Libraries. This would begin to change in 2009 when Node.js was released. Instead of using CDNs, Node.js came with its package manager, npm. npm was easy to use because every library was just one npm install away, and updating was effortless. Because of the ease of use, many people wanted to use npm on the web. However, this was impossible until Browserify came along.

    Another way to put it - I've read about broswerify. In theory, what happens behind the scenes, is that it simply adds all the .js files in the Node module into one .js file? Any explanation / specific resource will be appreciates

    The Yoroi browser extension is also made with React. I don't know if Browserify would be able to import the libraries the app and extension use to make the code run on the client side, but if that's possible, then at least users wouldn't have to send their passphrase anywhere.
