Top 14 JavaScript Build Tool Projects

  • webpack

    A bundler for javascript and friends. Packs many modules into a few bundled assets. Code Splitting allows for loading parts of the application on demand. Through "loaders", modules can be CommonJs, AMD, ES6 modules, CSS, Images, JSON, Coffeescript, LESS, ... and your custom stuff.

    Project mention: How we used JSDoc & Webpack to write some custom JavaScript decorators & annotations | | 2022-05-19

    You could write a pre-build script to write the docs into a file and then read that in at compile time, but where's the fun in that? We use Webpack for our bundling needs, which means we can write a custom loader. This will run JSDoc over the file for us, play around with the data a little bit and give us a nice output. We can use this output to configure which data comes out the model.

    Project mention: PurgeCSS & styled-components: Does It Work? | | 2022-04-29

    PurgeCSS analyzes your HTML and internally keeps track of which selectors are being used or not. PurgeCSS actually analyzes other types of files besides HTML for selectors, such as template files and JavaScript. This feature is what makes PurgeCSS different from a similar solution, UnCSS, and related to a 'predecessor' solution called PurifyCSS. More on both of those later on.
