  • Asset Pipeline JS Migration
    2 projects | dev.to | 1 Feb 2023
    Using Webpacker in Rails provides several advantages over the traditional asset pipeline. First, Webpacker uses JavaScript modules, which allows for better code organization and improved code reusability. Second, it offers modern frontend build tools, such as Babel and PostCSS, for transforming and compiling assets. Third, it provides faster build times and faster runtime performance through code splitting and lazy loading. Fourth, it offers better integration with JavaScript frameworks such as React, Vue, and Angular. Overall, Webpacker offers a more flexible and modern asset management solution for Rails applications. And while Webpacker is being retired, this initiative is to consolidate our code accordingly before moving our bundler to another solution.
