From Files to Modules

Our New Build Process

Where We've Been

  • Organize files by type
  • Move dependencies to npm
  • Upgraded to latest AngularJS
  • Converted to components

Where We're Going Next

  • ES2015 (ES6) Modules
  • Webpack
  • TypeScript

Why?

  • Long answer: Better architecture
  • Short answer: Angular says so

File/Path Based

  • Bringing in code from files
  • Common examples:
    • Script tags
    • Grunt
    • Gulp
  • Processing from there

Module Based

  • Importing and exporting using ES6
  • Examples:
    • SystemJS
    • Webpack

Why modules?

  • No worrying about load order
  • Easier to maintain
  • Easier to ship to production
  • Way of the future
