Introducing Turbopack: Rust-based successor to Webpack

Vercel introduces Turbopack, the Rust-based successor to Webpack built with high-performance bare-metal tooling and an incremental architecture for the fastest possible development experience. Turbopack only bundles the minimum assets required in development, resulting in extremely fast startup times. In fact, it shows updates 700x faster than Webpack on large applications. Turbo, an open-source, incremental memoization framework for Rust, powers Turbopack. The future of Turbo is promising, as Turbopack will eventually power Next.js production builds and support React Server Components natively, as well as TypeScript, JSX, CSS, and more. With Turbopack, developers can expect a fast and flexible development experience for apps of any size.
