Vite, a front-end build tool, has continued to mature and grow in popularity since we featured it in the Assess ring in the previous Radar. It is rapidly becoming the default choice among our teams when starting a new front-end project. Vite provides a set of defaults for building, bundling and managing dependencies in applications that depend on ES modules in the browser. Because it takes advantage of the native speed of esbuild and the Rollup bundler, Vite significantly improves the front-end developer experience. Moreover, when used with React, Vite offers an attractive alternative to the stalwart but nearly defunct Create React App. Vite relies on ES modules, and unlike most older tools, it doesn't provide shimming or polyfills, which means you need a different strategy for older browsers that don't support ES modules. In cases where older browsers had to be supported, some of our teams import polyfills at the module level so that Vite can be used consistently across environments.
