    An extremely fast JavaScript and CSS bundler and minifier

    First of all, let's start with what Vite does. Vite is responsible for building a development environment and building a production environment. The development environment is built using esbuild, which is developed in Go language(Go is very fast) On the other hand, the build command for the production environment uses Rollup. The reason why the tools used for building the development environment and the build command for the production environment are different is that although esbuild is super fast, some important functions required for bundling applications are still under development, so Rollup, which is the best solution at this point, is used. (See: https://vitejs.dev/guide/why.html#the-problems)
