There are a few ways to properly compress webpack chunks:

  1. Use webpack's built-in compression options: Webpack has built-in options for compressing chunks, such as setting the mode to "production" or using plugins like webpack-uglify-js-plugin or terser-webpack-plugin.
  2. Enable Gzip compression: You can also enable Gzip compression in your webpack configuration by setting the compression option to true. This will help reduce the size of your chunks even further.
  3. Split chunks: Splitting your chunks into smaller, more manageable pieces can help reduce the overall size of your webpack bundle. You can use webpack's optimization.splitChunks option to specify how your chunks should be split.
  4. Use code splitting: Code splitting is a technique where you only load the code that is necessary for a particular page or feature, rather than loading all of your code at once. This can help reduce the size of your webpack chunks and improve performance.
  5. Minify your code: Minifying your code removes unnecessary characters and white space, making your chunks smaller and more efficient. You can use plugins like UglifyJS or Terser to minify your code in webpack.


By using these techniques, you can properly compress your webpack chunks and improve the performance of your application.
