@grounded_sage: :wave: that would be me! I haven't had a chance to work on it since, but I'm hoping to start picking off issues/adding features this weekend

bendy 00:33:34

if you want to contribute/see anything specific, I'm happy to work with you on it :simple_smile:

@bendy: I'm still new to programming so my contributions would be minimal. Went to play with PostCSS some time ago but I spent about 6 hours trying to work out how to use Webpack and eventually gave up (I believe it was to use CSS modules when they were first created). I started out in programming with Meteor at the beginning of last year and dabbled with Less and Sass very lightly. Been learning in spare time ever since. I've just been building a static website using Stasis, Garden and Hiccup. The most painful thing is CSS globals.

@grounded_sage no worries - if anything that makes your input more valuable. I want to make sure it's as foolproof as possible, because using it in a webpack build makes it seem so daunting :simple_smile:

@bendy: I'm happy to share my experience. I'm actually considering giving Webpack another go for the next static website I want to build with React. Will be interesting to see if it's any easier for me to get through it.

@bendy: I'm currently looking at this. Kind of scares me to be diving back into Webpack but I'm not sure if I could pull something like this off in Clojure land.

Ahh so hard to decide what to do. Found myself looking at all these silly plug and play solutions which = not learning to actually program. Think I might stay here and stick with it.

@grounded_sage fwiw, if you decide to go the webpack route, I'd start with a really simple webpack config. Don't worry about hot reloading or anything, just get a few loaders in there

bendy 19:38:54

webpack is kinda like leinengen - it's a lot simpler to understand if you just start with the basics, and mix in what you need as you learn it
