    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.

    Webpack is a tool which processes and bundles your application, making your code more usable for browsers. Your application contains modules of reusable code (e.g javascript, node_modules, images and CSS styles) which all come together to create your application. Webpack separates this code based on how it's used by your application, making it easier for the browser to follow.

    A declarative, efficient, and flexible JavaScript library for building user interfaces.

    The last thing you need to do is set up React so you can start developing a react application.

  • Klotho
