  • Node.js vs. Deno vs. Bun: JavaScript runtime comparison
    9 projects | | 6 Sep 2023
    Additional features for Bun include a transpiler and package manager. As hinted at in the name, it also includes bundling features, giving you the functionality that would otherwise require another tool, such as Snowpack or rollup.js. It also has a dead code elimination feature through its JavaScript minifier.

  • Should I migrate from create-react-app?
    4 projects | /r/reactjs | 24 Mar 2023
    once upon a time there was this thing called Snowpack: https://www.snowpack.devwhich had a lot of promises as vite (rollup w/ esm). So I migrated a project over from CRA to this thing.While startup speed was much much faster, it actually didn't make the app useable. I timed it meticulously for both CRA and snowpack build and found that the TTI was almost identical. I am not claiming the same to be vite but it's possible and I don't have a large app to prove it..

    That reminds me, wasn't there a build tool called Snowflake?

    Oh, it was called Snowpack [1]. And it's no longer being actively maintained. Yeesh.

  • Building an offline-first app with React and CouchDB
    2 projects | | 26 Aug 2022
    The first thing we need is a JavaScript project for our app. We'll use Snowpack as our bundler. Open a terminal located in a directory for the project and type npx create-snowpack-app react-couchdb --template @snowpack/app-template-minimal. Snowpack will create a skeleton for our React application and install all dependencies. Once it's done doing its job, type cd react-couchdb to get into the newly created project directory. create-snowpack-app is very similar to create-react-app in how it sets-up your project, but it's a lot less intrusive (You don't even need to use eject at any point).

  • Creating an express app and using Snowpack as a build tool

    Before you get too deep into Snowpack, be aware that they recommend using other tools now because it’s no longer maintained.
  • Is Astro ready for your blog?
    20 projects | | 24 Apr 2022
    Astro began life with Snowpack as its asset pipeline, which makes perfect sense given that the two projects came originally from the same development team. However, the developers soon reached the decision that Astro would be a better product if it used the impressive Vite package, instead. While the resulting switchover was a breaking change with a capital BC when it occurred, the capabilities it unlocked have proven the exceptional wisdom of this choice.
