Snowpack – build modern web apps without a bundler

Must say I’m quite excited about Snowpack (formerly known as @pika/web, which I covered here) which just got released.

With Snowpack you can build modern web apps (with React, Vue, etc.) without a bundler (like Webpack, Parcel, Rollup). No more waiting for your bundler every time you hit save. Instead, changes are ready in the browser instantly.

You only have to run Snowpack once. By doing so it will generate ES Modules for all of your dependencies, which you can then directly use in the browser.

Example usage:

npm install --save [email protected]
npx snowpack
// index.js
import { h, Component, render } from '/web_modules/preact.js';

// …
