To make sure Meteor’s tools keep up with the times, I’ve been learning about Webpack and the state of the non-Meteor JS build tool ecosystem. It may make sense for a future version of Meteor to use Webpack, and it’s interesting to see what kind of experience is achievable using Webpack and NPM.
Here are my notes: https://meteor.quip.com/52aGAgRToj31
If you have thoughts about the merits of different JS build tools or what Meteor should do, feel free to leave them in this thread.
Edit: See also this very active thread about integrating Webpack into the Meteor build tool: Webpack compiler inside Meteor (ES6 modules, hot reload and code splitting!) I haven’t studied this approach yet.
