Discussion on: 🚗 Sidecar for a Code splitting

In your last example why do you load library/sidecar lazily but in your library use it as a static import?
Not really fully on that boat yet, great article by the way. Love reading your articles since every concept has a well-defined example attached to it.

It was more about:

  1. You was exporting a Thing from your library
  2. You separated a thing to Main and Sidecar
  3. You are exporting Main, just the one part, and the old Thing assembled back from new pieces. Library public API is not changed. This is no more than a minor bump.
  4. You are exporting a Sidecar via another endpoint
  5. ....
  6. You are assembling a Thing in a user space from Main and lazy Sidecar.

Technically you may keep import in a library code, but you will loose control on chunk name and prefetching.

As I said - this is a subject to complete and argue about.
