[Enhancement] Replace grunt tasks with a bundler


  • Hello,

    Are there any plans/desire to replace grunt tasks with a bundler? After reviewing the code, bundlers like Vite and Rollup come to mind as good potential replacements.

    @justmeow Some desire, yes.

    We experimented with webpack initially, but it was never fully rolled out. It is part of our v2 plans, of which we are still in the planning stage of 😄

    Grunt itself is just used for the watcher, do you mean ./nodebb build? Our hand-rolled bundler?

    Part of us dragging our heels on that one is a sense of it not being broken, so there's no need to fix, heh.

    There is a certain wisdom there, too oft reserved for unix grey beards... Heh....


  • @julian yup, was thinking of the builder + all the custom build tasks. It may not seem broken if you have experience with it and used it for so long. But it can be discouraging for anyone new that wants to help contribute, not just code, but architecture, CI..etc. Since it's being worked on for v2, not going into the why I think it should go in that direction 😛

    Where are y'all posting updates for v2? I checked the repo projects tab + road map (last update in 2018, probably deprecated)
