    Externalize Dependencies to be Loaded via CDN with webpack


    We can separate our custom application code from the common libraries we leverage, such as React and ReactDOM. In this lesson we'll configure webpack to treat React and ReactDOM as external dependencies. Then we'll update our HTML template to conditionally include the CDN links for those libraries for production builds.
