    Webpack library starter

    Webpack based boilerplate for producing libraries (Input: ES6, Output: universal library)

    Features

    • Webpack 3 based.
    • ES6 as a source.
    • Exports in a umd format so your library works everywhere.
    • ES6 test setup with Mocha and Chai.
    • Linting with ESLint.

    Process

    ES6 source files
           |
           |
        webpack
           |
           +--- babel, eslint
           |
      ready to use
         library
      in umd format
    

    Have in mind that you have to build your library before publishing. The files under the lib folder are the ones that should be distributed.

    Getting started

    1. Setting up the name of your library
    • Open webpack.config.js file and change the value of libraryName variable.
    • Open package.json file and change the value of main property so it matches the name of your library.
    1. Build your library
    • Run npm install to get the project's dependencies
    • Run npm run build to produce minified version of your library.
    1. Development mode
    • Having all the dependencies installed run npm run dev. This command will generate an non-minified version of your library and will run a watcher so you get the compilation on file change.
    1. Running the tests
    • Run npm run test

    Scripts

    • npm run build - produces production version of your library under the lib folder
    • npm run dev - produces development version of your library and runs a watcher
    • npm run test - well ... it runs the tests :)
    • npm run test:watch - same as above but in a watch mode

    Readings

    Misc

    An example of using dependencies that shouldn’t be resolved by webpack, but should become dependencies of the resulting bundle

    In the following example we are excluding React and Lodash:

    {
      devtool: 'source-map',
      output: {
        path: '...',
        libraryTarget: 'umd',
        library: '...'
      },
      entry: '...',
      ...
      externals: {
        react: 'react'
        // Use more complicated mapping for lodash.
        // We need to access it differently depending
        // on the environment.
        lodash: {
          commonjs: 'lodash',
          commonjs2: 'lodash',
          amd: '_',
          root: '_'
        }
      }
    }
