Nice. Please do another follow-up and compare it with browserify maybe. I was thinking about browserify, but now webpack looks intersting too.

We'll see... There are a lot of other lessons I need to record. In the mean time, I recommend checking out some blogposts and just making a choice. Personally, I think the webpack community will win over browserify, but that's yet to be seen.

Any lesson talk about how to use Webpack with Angularjs and Node.js project?

Very useful intro - many thanks for this. Given that many lessons on egghead now assume familiarity with webpack, I am surprised that this intro was quite hard to find.
Any chance of making this a more visible stand-alone lesson?
Thanks again and keep 'em coming.

Maybe so! I have a playlist for all my Webpack lessons on Egghead: https://kcd.im/egghead-webpack

Could not get 'webpack' command to work on command line:
(Windows 7-MINGW64) - bash: webpack: command not found

$ npm -v 4.2.0
$ node -v 6.9.5

Added npm script to 'package.json'.

"scripts": {
"start": " webpack --config webpack.config.js"
},

$ npm start

HEY, QUICK QUESTION!
