As modern browsers now support the native usage of ES Modules, it's possible to use them to enhance frontend development, which is the goal of Vite.

Since its announcement in 2020, Vite has garnered significant attention and has grown a large community that provides pluggable features. Vite offers two key components: a native ESM-based development server and a bundler for production builds.

The development server boasts improved performance during development, as modules are loaded and transpiled only on demand. This leads to faster cold-start times and quicker Hot Module Replacement (HMR) support.

We consider Vite to be a stable and production-ready tool, and we would recommend it for upcoming projects.
