In a nutshell

Rollup is a module bundler for JavaScript that lets you write modern JS with all the latest features and output bundles in formats like AMD, CommonJS, ES modules or an IIFE.

# compile to a <script> containing a self-executing function ('iife')
rollup main.js --file bundle.js --format iife

# compile to a CommonJS module ('cjs')
rollup main.js --file bundle.js --format cjs

# UMD format requires a bundle name
rollup main.js --file bundle.js --format umd --name "myBundle"
