Packem is +2X faster than Parcel (with multicore compilation). It leverages close-to-the-metal Rust bindings to achieve zero-cost abstractions and fearless concurrency. The runtime context uses
node-worker-farmfor distributive multithreading on larger module graphs.
Packem is precompiled into safe and efficient binaries. The upcoming v1.0 stable is expected to implement most parts of the runtime context in Rust, hence improved speeds.
#Versatile Plugin System
A comprehensive class-based approach is used to instantiate and rehydrate plugins into the bundling cycle. The
PackemEventDispatcherAPI can be used to manage internal event hooks and create custom ones during build time.
