A future without Webpack  ↦

We continue to use bundlers even though ES Modules (the new JavaScript module system) runs natively on the web. Why?

Over the last several years, JavaScript bundling has morphed from a production-only optimization into a required build step for most web applications. Whether you love this or hate it, it’s hard to deny that bundlers have added a ton of new complexity to web development – a field of development that has always taken pride in its view-source, easy-to-get-started ethos.
