Browserify vs Webpack

If you need a cabin, why start
with a mere pile of logs?

In the land of JavaScript, no one is king for long.

Browserify (and friends…)

Some assembly required.

Webpack

Configuration-based systems are preferable to imperative systems if they make the right assumptions about your goals up front.

require("./stylesheet.css");
img.src = require(‘./glyph.png’);
Why not start here and tweak a few minor things that make you unique?

The Bottom Line

Build tooling shouldn’t require a custom build from the ground up. It should provide customization points that allow you to handle the few things that make you truly unique.
