babel-plugin-descend-imports

This plugin helps you to descend specific import statements to the end of the imports block.

The Problem:

Sometimes, the order of imports in module is important. For example when importing css into js (css modules and not only).

If using MiniCssExtractPlugin, the order of the css in the bundle will be the order of imports.

Example:

ChildComponent.js

import React from 'react';
import 'ChildComponent.css';

export function ParentComponent() {}

ParentComponent.js

import React from 'react';
import 'ParentComponent.css';                       // 👈 here is the problem
import { ChildComponent } from './ChildComponent';  // 👈 cild component can override the css

export function ParentComponent() {}

ChildComponent is imported after the ParentComponent css, so if parent wants to customize the the child's css, it might be overridden by child's specificity

In order to not take care of this, you can use this plugin, that will move the css imports to the end of the imports block.

        }],
    ],
};
