Module flamingo-carotene-webpack

This module abstracts webpack to have a quite good featured webpack config ready to use with your project.

An initial webpack config will be provided by this module.

When triggered by a command, the module creates the webpack compiler and run the config that can be extended through any other module and your own project config.

How to use

npm i -D flamingo-carotene-webpack

Run the webpack compiler by e.g. executing npx flamingo-carotene build.

The webpack module will listen to the following commands: build, buildWebpack, buildWebpackJs, buildWebpackCss, watchWebpackJs, watchWebpackCss.

This module will build the webpack config at the config commands priority 0 with the webpack config object available in config.webpack. That means that the webpack config can be edited in two ways. 1. By a config command handler with a priority between 0 and 100, that overrides entries of the webpack modules config. Every config made to config.webpack before priority 0 will be taken into account when creating the webpack config. 1. By a config command handler with a priority lower than 0, that overrides entries of the webpack config. Every config made to config.webpackConfig after priority 0 will be taken into account when running the webpack compiler by a command.

Every webpack configuration that is supported by the used webpack version can be applied that way.
