@pika/pack connects pre-configured plugins to build and optimize your package for you. Plugins wrap already-popular tools like Babel and Rollup with options already optimized for npm. This lets @pika/pack build your package without much (if any) configuration required on your part.
This works because @pika/pack builds your entire package: code, assets, and even package.json manifest. By building the entire package, you end up with a fully-built
pkg/ directory, ready to publish. Entry points like “main”, “module”, “umd:main”, “types”, “unpkg”, and even advanced options like “sideEffects” and “files” are all handled by your build plugins.
.d.ts TypeScript definition files thanks to the @pika/plugin-build-types plugin.
