CCATP #738 – Bart Busschots on PBS 138 – Bundling a Web App/Site with Webpack (Part 1)

We’re back in the saddle after a summer of “PBS Adjacent” installments. Our last real PBS was learning how to use Webpack to bundle a JavaScript library for sharing with the world. That was cool, but a lot of us want to use Webpack to bundle a web app we’ve written ourselves to include all of the libraries we’re using. We also want to have an easier way to reduce dependency on having an Internet connection. We also want an easier way to keep our bundle of libraries up to date. In this installment, Bart teaches us how to do all that with NPM and Webpack. I really enjoyed this episode because he used a worked example to show us how it all works, rather than talking only about the theory. The repetitive steps for each library really helped me to understand the process.

You can find Bart’s fabulous tutorial shownotes at pbs.bartificer.net.
