About This Episode

We're able to successfully version (hash) our bundled chunks, but now we have a new problem: if the file hash keeps changing, how do we reference it in our HTML? We can no longer hardcode the path. Instead, let's have webpack generate a manifest.json file. This way, using Ruby, PHP, or fill-in-the-blank, we can read this file and dynamically determine and fetch the proper hash.
