This article will not explain how to use Webpack. Rather, explain the reasoning behind it, and what makes it more special than just a bundler.
Webpack is still a Bundler
Node.js allows you to modularise code. Modularisation of code causes an issue with dependencies. Cyclic dependencies can occur-e.g., A -> B -> A referencing. What tools like Webpack can do, is build an entire dependency graph of all of your referenced modules. With this graph, analysis can occur to help you alleviate the stress of such a dependency graph.
