Webpack is all the rage today. It calls itself a module bundler, but it is so much more than that. It will replace your gulp setup entirely, as it will do your transformations, you bundling, your replacements, your asset compilation, just about everything on the front-end build chain.

This question bothered me, so I decided to go ahead and build something to find out.
The building blocks
Express is a project of the Node.js Foundation, it is a robust web framework for NodeJS. The Express framework allows building backend services with REST-APIs.
