Next Generation Front-End Tooling: Vite


In this article, we will look at Vite core features, basic setup, styling with Vite, Vite working with TypeScript and frameworks, working with static assets and images, building libraries, and server integration. Why Vite? Problems with traditional tools: Older build tools (grunt, gulp, webpack, etc.) require bundling, which becomes increasingly inefficient as the scale of a project grows. This leads to slow server start times and updates. Slow server start: Vite improves development server start time by categorizing modules into "dependencies" and "source code." Dependencies are pre-bundled using esbuild, which is faster than JavaScript-based bundlers, while source code is served over native ESM, optimizing loading times. Slow updates: Vite makes Hot Module Replacement (HMR) faster and more efficient by only invalidating the necessary chain of modules when a file is edited. Why bundle for production: Despite the advancements, bundling is still necessary for optimal performance in production. Vite offers a pre-configured build command that includes performance optimizations. Bundler choice: Vite uses Rollup for its flexibility, although esbuild offers speed. The possibility of incorporating esbuild in the future isn't ruled out. Vite Core Features Vite is a build tool and development server that is designed to make web development, particularly for modern JavaScript applications, faster and more efficient. It was created with the goal of improving the developer experience by leveraging native ES modules (ESM) in modern browsers and adopting a new, innovative approach to development and bundling. Here are the core features of Vite:
