Allow tree-shaking with Lodash
This blog post was originally published a little while ago. Please consider that it may no longer be relevant or even accurate.
Despite pulling in just one method from Lodash I noticed that when I ran my bundle through Webpack Visualizer I was still importing the whole library. I was under the impression that Webpack's tree-shaking would have solved this problem for me, but apparently not.
Turns out you'll need to switch to the module version of Lodash and instead use
lodash-es. It appears as though it's a first-party version of the library and automatically generated for each tagged release, so it's easy to use.
That simple change should save you from pulling in the entirety of Lodash and instead only grabs what you use, meaning smaller bundle sizes for happier customers.
