Working with Fusebox and React

If you are searching for an alternative bundler to webpack, you might want to take a look at FuseBox. It builds on what webpack offers — code-splitting, hot module reloading, dynamic imports, etc. — but code-splitting in FuseBox requires zero configuration by default (although webpack will offer the same as of version 4.0).

Instead, FuseBox is built for simplicity (in the form of less complicated configuration) and performance (by including aggressive caching methods). Plus, it can be extended … Read article

Musings on HTTP/2 and Bundling

HTTP/2 has been one of my areas of interest. In fact, I've written a few articles about it just in the last year. In one of those articles I made this unchecked assertion:

If the user is on HTTP/2: You'll serve more and smaller assets. You’ll avoid stuff like image sprites, inlined CSS, and scripts, and concatenated style sheets and scripts.

I wasn't the only one to say this, though, in all fairness to Rachel, she qualifies her assertion … Read article
