    Select certain output files to the html file. Works with newer html-webpack-plugin versions.

    Build Status


    Only for webpack@5 and html-webpack-plugin@5 or higher.


    1. Install via npm i -D html-webpack-select-assets-plugin.
    2. Add to your webpack config AFTER HtmlWebpackPlugin.
    const HtmlWebpackSelectAssetsPlugin = require('html-webpack-select-assets-plugin');
    // OR
    import HtmlWebpackSelectAssetsPlugin from 'html-webpack-select-assets-plugin';
    // And for webpack config
        entry: {
            app: join(__dirname, './src/entry.js'),
            other: join(__dirname, './src/other.js'),
        // ...
        plugins: [
            new HtmlWebpackPlugin({
                filename: (entry) => `${entry}.html`,
                template: join(__dirname, './src/index.html'),
            new HtmlWebpackSelectAssetsPlugin({
                selector: 'smart',

    The plugin takes a configuration argument with a key called selector. It will help you to select assets for the specified output html.

    The typical or most powerful usage case is when you deal with multiple html pages:

    • You have multiple entry for webpack entry config;
    • Only one HtmlWebpackPlugin instance and config with filename: (entry) => \${entry}.html`` to generate multiple html files (one-to-one correspond to each entry js file).

    The problem is that HtmlWebpackPlugin will inject all (entry) assets files to each html file. What if you only want the corresponding entry's assets? This is why html-webpack-select-assets-plugin here -- select assets corresponding to entry.

    Powerful selector option

    • "smart": only select assets corresponding to each entry automatically. This means if you want to generate app.html for entry:app.js, only app.js and assets imported by app.js will be injected.

    • function selector(asset:HtmlTagObject, context:SelectorContext, type:AssetType):boolean: you can write your custom selector function to choose assets flexibly.

      • HtmlTagObject: {attributes,meta,tagName}, the type is defined by html-webpack-plugin and represents the asset.
      • SelectorContext: {entry:string, outputName:string, entryFiles:string[]}, the context info for the asset. entry means entry name, outputName is current generated html file's name, and entryFiles means all assets associated with the entry.
      • AssetType: enum "script"|"style"|"meta", means the type of the asset.
