Is it possible to configure a webpack/node-free Rails app with ES6, Hotwire, Tailwind, PostCSS and appropriate tooling such as minification, transpiling, fingerprinting?
The Rails asset pipeline and JS docs talk about Coffeescript and Sass but there is no mention of ES6 or PostCSS or how to transpile code to ensure browser compatibility (or maybe it is deemed unnecessary?).
What is Basecamp’s or other companies’ approach to this? I was under the impression that Basecamp doesn’t use Webpack which gives me some hope that a solution exists, but I might be wrong?
Disclaimer: I am no front-end dev expert and would welcome any pointers to educate myself. I am just trying to weigh whether I could do without webpack/node’s complexity in my Rails-with-JS-sprinkles app.
