Man, the grammar in the article is pretty bad...

Anyway, I don't think I'll use it until it'll have tree-shaking, but kudos for the effort. Creating a (decent) modern bundler isn't an easy task at all.

Ah, and another thing: referencing the project's root with "~". Really not a fan of it. I won't probably never load a module from the home directory, but this is messing with a widely estabilished convention.

I'm relatively sure the author has exposure to .Net as the tilde is used as project root the too.  It doesn't work out autosub for profile/home in node currently in any of the path or FS modules.

The tilde is also a symbol referring to the user's home folder on Unix systems.

I know... I work with Windows, Linux and Mac on a daily basis.  I was just pointing it out in context as to why that was chosen.  It *could* also be thought of as the *home* for the application itself.

I even mentioned that node specifically doesn't do anything with tilde in the fs or path modules, even in a unixy environment.

thank man for the support :) that is exactly why we chose it. because we come from.Net background.

to answer the OP, try to check how many npm packages like `app-root-path` are trying to solve this big issue and you will get a better idea about the reasoning behind it.

A lot of negativity here, which bums me out. I think Fusebox looks really promising and I'm definitely going to consider it  for future projects as a means of sidestepping webpack's complexity.

No code splitting, tree shaking and HMR :/
Webpack is still the only way.

1) We support HMR
2) We have different approaches.You can split your code as much as you like, creating bundles using arithmetic instructions

3) WebPack tree-sharking works poorly. We are working on a universal solution that will support CommonJS tree-shaking.

igl, we do have HMR

please also check our seed projects that already use it like

as for code splitting, yes we have it, we call it multi-entry bundles, sorry for the lack of docs it will be addressed ASAP.

as for tree shaking, we are working on tackling this issue in a sensable way.

please give FuseBox a try, you will love it and see how easy, fast and powerful it is :)

The docs doesn't seem to mention anything like Webpack's HMR API - i.e. I hope you are not confusing HMR with reload-on-save?
