Webpack vs. Browserify

Browserify vs Webpack

Webpack and Browserify have both been extremely powerful tools for modern frontend development. Both have created a way to bundle JavaScript and use CommonJS to require modules. This has been helpful to keep a project’s codebase modular. I’ve found both tools useful in a project’s build, I’ve spoken about Browserify a few times and have put together an overview on how we leveraged Browserify at Evernote.

On the React Podcast, Pete Hunt and Michael Jackson discuss Webpack and Browserify. They both share their thoughts on what each tool is trying to achieve and what are the benefits each provides. The podcast is an interesting discussion with a lot of great insights. Check out the podcast here.
