Is webpack like fast food?

/ 1 min read

Webpack is a module bundling tool for packaging apps. I am using it more and more, even to the point where it almost entirely has replaced my previous grunt and gulp build environments.

But here’s the thing: I still don’t feel entirely comfortable using webpack. I wonder if it’s only me, or are there more people feeling the same?
To me, it’s still this magic box with a gazillion configuration options (which, in fact, you almost don’t need), awful documentation and a single core developer. You know, things that usually make you feel uncomfortable.

But man, you can do crazy things with it so fast! Almost like fast food. Instant gratification with perhaps a little bad taste afterwards.
