All of the concerns explained in this video are addressing concerns for project template which is not being used on real world, production projects. I suggest you to do two of the followings:
- Make it really clear that this thing is just there for people to get started with the templates. It doesn't give all the things that would make modern web applications work in the best way (e.g. code splitting, etc.).
- Get rid of bundling and minification on templates as it's not really something that you care about on a template project. Just to sake of showing off on demos, it has no value.
I am not saying Webpack is ultimate tool which will be something we will use for the rest of our lives. Web development is ruthless and it will probably be succeeded by something else tomorrow. However, that thing will come from nodejs stack. So, trying to make people move away from nodejs stack is not something that I have empathy for.
