Imagine a world without open source software. Pretty scary, isn't it?
There would be no free operating systems that let you take full control of your computer.
For the past few years, Webpack has played a central and important role at trivago. We use it for handling SVG icons and to improve our startup time for the benefit of our users by loading resources on demand. We run a highly complicated build with plenty of custom plugins which perform all sorts of optimisations for us that no other tool would allow us to do. And because we truly love open source we’ve also open sourced our solution to speed up multi-compiler builds, which we rely on heavily to deliver ideal bundles to our users.
When using webpack to build your assets, it's only a matter of time until you wish for targeted builds.
Whether it's the output of the library you're working on (CJS, UMD, AMD, Var, etc.), or the specific feature
set (IE8 support, no IE8 support).
parallel-webpack can run those builds in parallel, thus making full use
of the multi-core processing capabilities of modern devices.
