About webpack Packaging Static Resources such as css and image?

  node.js, question

Is it a good idea for webpack to package css and image to js inside?
Should css and image be packaged with webpack, or under what circumstances is it appropriate to package css and image?
Is webpack generally used with gulp or grunt?

JS/CSS is merged to reduce http requests and speed up page loading.
How do I pack image? Merge into one big map partition to load?
This seems unnecessary

Look at the scale of your project with or without building tools. If you use Webstrom, you can automatically package updates without using it.
Is it better to build tools if the project is large?
