My initial goal, when I saw the work on Webpacker, was to nudge it in a direction that could support React on Rails.
During implementation, we ran into trouble and confusion, primarily due to the needs of Webpacker to configure the setup so that there was no custom Webpack configuration, which ran contrary to the React on Rails objective of being explicitly unopinionated regarding the configuration of the Webpack tooling.
Please note, that both Webpacker and Webpacker Lite evolved, so many of the issues discussed above have evolved. That being said, I’m super happy with my decision to provide a separate fork of Webpacker that best suits React on Rails users.
