Using Webpack libraries simplifies and speeds up your development process by
Bundling: The main functionality of webpack is bundling different scripts and dependencies into a single output file. This makes the application more efficient by reducing HTTP requests.
Plugins: These extend the webpack's capabilities beyond bundling and loading. You can leverage plugins for additional tasks like optimizing bundle, managing environment variables, and more.
Code Splitting: You can split code into various bundles, which can be loaded on demand or in parallel.
Hot Module Replacement (HMR): This functionality allows updates to be applied to modules while the application is running, without requiring a full refresh.
Despite its many advantages, there are some gotchas to watch out for when using webpack:
Learning Curve: Webpack has a steep learning curve. The abundant features and complex configuration can be overwhelming for a beginner.
Over Configuration: While webpack's configurability is a strength, it can become a pitfall when over-used. Make sure to only include necessary configurations to prevent bloating.
Debugging Difficulty: Debugging bundled code can be difficult due to the multiple transformations it might undergo before being included in the final bundle. Source maps can help with this issue, but they can also slow down the compilation process.
Upgrades: Webpack releases come with changes that may break some configurations. It's wise to thoroughly test and assure the compatibility when upgrading to newer versions.
