Usage with Webpack

Webpack defines the right loaders to support CSS.

To use it, add import "myfile.scss" in your Webpack imported file.

Hot Module Replacement

When setting hot: true in your crafty.config.js for your main JavaScript bundle, you can enable Hot Module Replacement.

With this, the CSS files imported in your Webpack bundles are automatically reloaded upon changes.

This is used inside crafty watch, the build mode will not take it into account.

Extracting CSS

By default, the CSS will be embedded in your bundle, but you can provide the extractCSS option to extract your styles using the MiniCssExtractPlugin.

Side effects

Be careful when using extractCSS option and sideEffects: false in package.json of your project. Crafty is using css-loader and when you import a CSS file in your project, it needs to be added to the side effect list so it will not be unintentionally dropped in production mode.
