Description

Eric Anderson (@ericmander) and Fred K. Schott (@FredKSchott) dive into the world of Snowpack, an open-source, frontend build tool for web developers. Snowpack is special because it uses Javascript’s ES module system to instantly write file changes to the browser. Fred created Snowpack and the Skypack CDN to fulfill his vision of the future of the web, which he first recognized while trying to advance the Javascript ecosystem with an earlier project called Pika. On today’s episode, find out how Fred rejected the pain of modern web development, and came up with a better solution.


In this episode we discuss:



  • Reconfiguring old ideas for today’s web development landscape

  • How Snowpack and Skypack lighten the load when it comes to Node modules and storage space

  • Questioning what it means to build a modern application that works for developers and users alike

  • Skypack and the future of shared dependencies across different sites

  • Why Snowpack is using an open governance framework
