Discussion on: The Shocking Immaturity of JavaScript

Webpack / Parcel are implemented in JS which ultimately is going to be as fast / slow as V8. esbuild is implemented in Go (closer to the metal) and uses a lot of concurrent algorithms as an optimization. In 1-2 years I think esbuild will emerge as the dominant tooling provider.

Right ... but why does that have to take 1-2 years? If it's that much better then I'd use it right away and dump the rest!

It’s pre 1.0 and missing a few core features. It’s not far off but it’s also not 100% adoptable yet.
