Webpack your bags

Maxime Fabre wrote a comprehensive tutorial on Webpack on the madewithlove-blog.

… Is Webpack a build system or a module bundler? Well, it’s both– and by this I don’t mean that it does both I mean that it combines both. Webpack doesn’t build your assets, and then separately bundle your modules, it considers your assets to be modules themselves.


Freek Van der Herten is a partner and developer at Spatie, an Antwerp based company that specializes in creating web apps with Laravel. After hours he writes about modern PHP and Laravel on this blog. When not coding he’s probably rehearsing with his kraut rock band. He loves waffles and butterflies.
