Vite unbundled ESM dev server and fast HMR are game-changing for DX. But Vite also shines when building your production applications.
This talk will dive into how the main pieces fit together to bundle and minify your code:
- Vite build as an opinionated Rollup setup.
- How esbuild is used as a fast TS and JSX transpile and a minifier.

We'll discover Vite as a polished and extendable toolkit to craft optimized modern apps.
