In this lesson, we'll add some initial files to our project, install webpack and webpack-cli, and setup an npm script to create a JavaScript bundle using webpack. We'll inspect the resulting bundle to understand what webpack does by default. We’ll also add a .gitignore file to avoid committing node_modules and files that result from a build process.

Good stuff Andy, easy to follow. Just one snag - that last step to push to GitHub - I don't think we have the repo set up yet. In fact that seems to be the next lesson :-)

Sorry, there are a couple issues with video order. We're working on getting it straightened out as soon as possible.

When I install webpack, my github list shows 3428 changes with a massxive list of files. Any idea what I did differently?

9 months later and this doesn't appear to have been fixed.

Sounds like your node_modules folder isn’t in your .gitignore
