I can related to what you were talking about re webpack being "the thing" 2 years ago and now people are using Vite. I actually switched to Vite a couple of months ago and it is a heck of a lot faster. I guess at the time webpack came out we were dealing with grunt and gulp which were 1st generation css/js processors. Vite is just gen 3 and I am sure in 2 years it will be replaced with something else.
It all just makes me feel so behind the times :D I am still using Gulp.js in my main build process at work (a legacy app that is 8+ years old at this point). I know I'll never be able to upgrade it to something fancy; but, hopefully when I start to work on newer applications, I'll get some hands-on time with the fancy new tech.
I always try to have a side project to experiment with new things. Most of the projects in my regular work use legacy frameworks/tooling so if I didn't have side projects I'd never be able to learn anything new. I even do volunteer work (for good causes) sometimes because it gives me the freedom to use what I deem to be the best options.
That's a power-move. That's something that I am trying to get better about doing. Sometimes, it's hard to leave my zone of comfort. But, especially lately, with some exploration into Message Queues, I feel like I'm really branching out more than I have in a long time.
