Webpack to Vite migration

published on 2022/10/02

We migrated our web app’s codebase from Webpack 4 to Vite for one simple reason: speed.

Since Vite is relatively new, we can share that it’s stable and has made a tremendous difference in our lives as developers. Plus, the move was straightforward and didn’t take long—though our team here at Swimm learned some hard lessons along the way.


Vite is a fantastic piece of technology. It comes from the mind of Vue.js creator.

We use both technologies whenever applicable.
