Parcel is trying to establish the baseline 'modern frontend'
One now expects to just require() any assets the app uses - also, throw in all your configs in package.json
Parcel assumes that is now the standard way of doing things.
I dont see it as a replacement to webpack but rather as an exploration of the emerging standards.
We're a place where coders share, stay up-to-date and grow their careers.
We strive for transparency and don't collect excess data.
