Packager / Concatenation
concatenation means simply merging multiple files together, i.e. copying and pasting several files into one.
The reason is that it’s more efficient to fetch one file, rather than lots of small files.
Linter / Quality

Minification is the process of taking a file and making the overall number of characters less, without changing how the code works. The goal is to make the file size smaller.
