  • What is Webpack?

Webpack is a build tool for bundlings JavaScript modules together in order to run them on the browser.

  • What is Babel?

Babel is a JavaScript transpiler, it allows you to write ES6 code. In this project there is a Babel "Loader" which is a Webpack plugin. This lets Babel transpiles the ES6 code into browser run-able ES5 code before the modules are bundled.

  • How does all of this work?

The index.html file loads then React which renders a Javascript application into the #app div.
