Parcel is a new module bundler for Javascript applications. It offers faster compilation times and zero configuration bundling.

Setting up React with Parcel bundler: why Parcel?Webpack is a powerful tool. I know, webpack can’t be compared to Gulp but I didn’t look back since then.

However webpack has its own way of doing things:

it requires a configuration fileloader and transformer must be declared explicitlyIn other words, if you want to transform Javascript, or if you need an HTML file, webpack must be instructed with a corresponding configuration.

The configuration file is usually copied over and over into different projects. That could lead to errors, inconsistencies, and other issues.

Parcel aims at solving this problem with a zero configuration approach.

Setting up React with Parcel bundler: installing ParcelStart off by creating a directory for the project:

mkdir react-parcel cd react-parcelCreate a minimal directory structure for holding up the code:

mkdir -p src/jsInizialize the project by running:

npm init -yand you’re good to go.

Next up install Parcel with NPM:

npm i docs suggest installing the bundler globally. I recommend doing so only after configuring the NPM global default directory.

After the installation configure Parcel into package.json:

“scripts”: {

“start”: above…
