Description

What is Webpack?

A bundler for javascript and friends. Packs many modules into a few bundled assets. Code Splitting allows to load parts for the application on demand. Through "loaders" modules can be CommonJs, AMD, ES6 modules, CSS, Images, JSON, Coffeescript, LESS, ... and your custom stuff.

What is Grunt?

The less work you have to do when performing repetitive tasks like minification, compilation, unit testing, linting, etc, the easier your job becomes. After you've configured it, a task runner can do most of that mundane work for you—and your team—with basically zero effort.

What is Fly.js?

Fly is a modern build system for Node based in co-routines, generators and promises. Fly has robust error handling, callback heaven, cascading tasks, parallel execution and a simple API. See the documentation to learn more about how to use Fly and write your own plugins.
