Episode 6 / 2018.02.19
Andrew Welch, Patrick Harrington, Jonathan Melville, Michael Rog
In this episode, we talk to Eli Perelman and Tim Kelty from the Neutrino JS project about how Neutrino can make getting up and running using webpack a whole lot easier. Neutrino provides starter projects and middleware configs you can just grab off of the shelf and start using. Perhaps more importantly, Neutrino lets you solve a build problem once, and then re-use your Neutrino middleware in future projects.
We cover the whole reason we’re using build systems to begin with, and talk about our experiences with things like CodeKit, Grunt, Gulp, webpack, and then dive deep into Neutrino! Neutrino is backed by the Mozilla foundation, and it’s a very promising part of frontend development workflow.
