Hot Module Replacement without webpack-dev-server

Is there currently a way to use hot module replacement with a different backend than webpack-dev-server? We use a bunch of different backends (django, node, …) for our projects, so I was wondering if there is either a way to handle the streaming of the modified module through a utility like browser-sync or another backend-independent way?

  1. yes, HMR is a webpack feature not a webpack-dev-server feature.
    webpack-dev-server just offer a way to notify the browser that an update is available.

  2. Do you know of any good examples that illustrate how that would work (in particular, how webpack would notify the backend when a module is hot)?
