Webpack 5 Up and Running
- A beginner's guide to understanding application bundling and Webpack project structure
- Leverage Webpack's modular builds to optimize the performance of your web apps
- Discover how Webpack facilitates package bundling and understand its integration with Angular and Vue.js
Webpack has emerged as one of the most popular module bundlers used in web development projects, and serves as one of the most advanced web development build tools.
This quick reference begins with an introduction to Webpack and teaches you how to use it for initializing dependency management in your web projects. Starting with code splitting and transpiling, you will be taught about dependency graphs and how to configure them to achieve improved functionality and uncover hidden features. You'll also learn the difference between configuration files and options, and how Node.js plays a role in their creation and management. As you advance, you will delve into frameworks and unsupported code, which can be processed using loaders. Moving on, you'll be well on your way to performing application bundling efficiently, and will be introduced to the art of custom loader creation and plugin development.
By the end of this Webpack book, you'll have gained a basic understanding of deployment, live coding, and even hot module replacement, and you'll be able to incorporate application bundling in your web project efficiently.
