Need for Webpack in Ember?


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 ?


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


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


Correct, that’s not the case.


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) ?


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