Need for Webpack in Ember?


#1

Question - am I right in saying that as Ember compiles everying that is included within the application there is no need for any Webpack/Browserify/Blah ?


#2

Exactly. But you can checkout ember-browserify if you want to include npm modules.


#3

I thought that you can simply include npm modules anyway - not the case?


#4

Correct, that’s not the case.


#5

Forgive my ignorance, but NPM is a package manager Node and Node is a server-side tech, so if a package is writen for server-side the why would a client-side application want to use it (or even be able to) ?


#6

NPM isn’t a package manager for Node anymore, hence why ‘NPM’ no longer officially stands for Node Package Manager.
