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. (by webpack)

  • React/Webpack: From MB to KB. How we solved our bundling problem
    dev.to | 2021-10-20
    We dropped from the 11.0mb to 4.67mb without losing any functionality but still something was not right. The module in the screenshot @sovrn/platform-ui-core is the wrapper we use around Material-UI and we could see some components that we were clearly not using. We went back did some reading and found the sideEffects property in package.json that Webpack has adopted for - denoting which files in a project are “pure” and therefore safe to prune if unused. Material-UI uses it but we didn’t so we were not able to tree shake our internal Material-UI wrapper.

  • Rakkas: Next.js alternative powered by Vite
    dev.to | 2021-10-14
    If you're not familiar with Vite, it's an instance of a new class of tools, sometimes called non-bundlers, that leverage modern browsers' native EcmaScript modules support to do away with the bundling during development. This results in instant server start and much faster updates than traditional bundlers like Webpack, Rollup, or Parcel. These new tools (another example is Snowpack) improve developer experience so much that, once you try, you will never want to go back to your old tooling.

  • How to add fancy to your Amplify Project
    dev.to | 2021-10-11
    There are some bundlers out there and I am pretty sure you all have heard of Webpack. Others like Snowpack or Parcel are also pretty popular. But I really like esbuild which we will also use next.
  • Is create-react-app still the most common way to fire off a new react project?
    reddit.com/r/reactjs | 2021-10-08
    I wouldn't recommend starting a CRA app today. Our team is on CRA3 (Webpack 4) and for our large app dev startup time to first pageload is 70s -- not great. But I tried upgrading to CRA4 (Webpack 5) in a branch, and the startup time increased to 6 minutes. I'm not the only one having this issue with Webpack 5, and until there's substantial improvement on this front I am strongly inclined to stay away from Webpack or anything Webpack based.
  • The Ultimate Guide to Getting Started with the Rollup.js JavaScript Bundler
    dev.to | 2021-10-06
    Rollup.js has some competition with build tools such as webpack, Snowpack, and Parcel. As well as JavaScript module bundling, these can handle other aspects of your site such as HTML templates, CSS preprocessing, and image optimization. The downside is they can be more difficult to configure if you have custom requirements.

  • Running React Native everywhere: The Web
    dev.to | 2021-09-26
    Because React Native for Web is a React website, you can use front-end tools to build and run it. For example, you can build it with Webpack or Rollup instead of Metro bundler.
  • Running React Native everywhere

    This is not a "how to create a React Native app" guide. We'll spend most of the time getting our hands dirty by tweaking React Native's metro bundler, customizing Webpack configurations, and learning how monorepos and Yarn workspaces work.
