In this episode, we talk with Fred K. Schott from the Pika Project about a future without webpack. Instead of having a massive build system just to use some node packages on the frontend, we can use @pika/web!

In this episode, we talk with Fred K. Schott from the Pika Project about a future without webpack. Instead of having a massive build system just to use some node packages on the frontend, we can use @pika/web!

@pika/web aims to tame some of the insanity that has come with modern JavaScript tooling. We talk about how it works to create a ‘web_modules‘ folder right next to your ‘node_modules‘ folder, and that you can just use <script> tag to include any of those packages on the frontend!

We also discuss the morass of JavaScript, bundling, and how we're layering tooling on top of tooling to fix our problems. Is there a better way? The Pika Project thinks so! Listen in to see what you think!
