Imagemin Webpack

Plugin and Loader for webpack to optimize (compress) all images using imagemin. Do not worry about size of images, now they are always optimized/compressed.

Why

  • No extra dependencies (imagemin-gifsicle, imagemin-pngquant) in dependencies section into package.json. You decide for yourself what plugins to use.

  • This loader and plugin will optimize ANY images regardless of how they were added to webpack. image-webpack-loader don't optimize some images generating favicons-webpack-plugin or copy-webpack-plugin. ImageminWebpackPlugin don't optimize inlined images with url-loader.

  • Images optimized when inlined with url-loader or svg-url-loader. This can't be done with imagemin-webpack-plugin.

  • Throttle asynchronous images optimization (using maxConcurrency plugin option). This allows you to not overload a server when building.

  • All tested.

  • Persistent cache.

  • (Optional) Don't crash building process if your have corrupted image(s).

Install

npm install imagemin-webpack --save-dev

Optionals

Images can be optimized in two modes:

  1. Lossless (without loss of quality).
  2. Lossy (with loss of quality).

Note:

Explore the options to get the best result for you.

Recommended basic imagemin plugins for lossless optimization

npm install imagemin-gifsicle imagemin-jpegtran imagemin-optipng imagemin-svgo --save-dev

Recommended basic imagemin plugins for lossy optimization

npm install imagemin-gifsicle imagemin-mozjpeg imagemin-pngquant imagemin-svgo --save-dev

Basic

webpack.config.js

const ImageminPlugin = require("imagemin-webpack");
 
module.exports = {
  module: {
    rules: [
      {
        test: /\.(jpe?g|png|gif|svg)$/i,
        use: [
          {
            loader: "file-loader" // Or `url-loader` or your other loader
          }
        ]
      }
    ]
  },
  plugins: [
    // Make sure that the plugin is after any plugins that add images, example `CopyWebpackPlugin`
    new ImageminPlugin({
      bail: false, // Ignore errors on corrupted images
      cache: true,
      imageminOptions: {
        // Before using imagemin plugins make sure you have added them in `package.json` (`devDependencies`) and installed them
 
        // Lossless optimization with custom option
        // Feel free to experiment with options for better result for you
        plugins: [
          ["gifsicle", { interlaced: true }],
          ["jpegtran", { progressive: true }],
          ["optipng", { optimizationLevel: 5 }],
          [
            "svgo",
            {
              plugins: [
                {
                  removeViewBox: false
                }
              ]
            }
          ]
        ]
      }
    })
  ]
};

Note: If you want to use loader or plugin standalone see sections below, but this is not recommended.

Note: Make sure that plugin place after any plugins that add images or other assets which you want to optimized.

Standalone Loader

Documentation: Using loaders

In your webpack.config.js, add the ImageminPlugin.loader, chained with the file-loader or url-loader:

webpack.config.js

const ImageminPlugin = require("imagemin-webpack");
const imageminGifsicle = require("imagemin-gifsicle");
 
module.exports = {
  module: {
    rules: [
      {
        test: /\.(jpe?g|png|gif|svg)$/i,
        use: [
          {
            loader: "file-loader" // Or `url-loader` or your other loader
          },
          {
            loader: ImageminPlugin.loader,
            options: {
              bail: false, // Ignore errors on corrupted images
              cache: true,
              imageminOptions: {
                plugins: ["gifsicle"]
              }
            }
          }
        ]
      }
    ]
  }
};

Standalone Plugin

    rules: [
      {
        loader: "file-loader",
        options: {
          emitFile: true, // Don't forget emit images
          name: "[path][name].[ext]"
        },
        test: /\.(jpe?g|png|gif|svg)$/i
      }
    ]
  },
  plugins: [
    // Make sure that the plugin placed after any plugins that added images
    new ImageminWebpack({
      bail: false, // Ignore errors on corrupted images
      cache: true,

Examples

Optimize images based on size

You can use difference options (like progressive/interlaced and etc) based on image size (example - don't do progressive transformation for small images).

What is progressive image? Answer here.

webpack.config.js

const ImageminPlugin = require("imagemin-webpack");
const imageminJpegtran = require("imagemin-jpegtran");
 
module.exports = {
  minimizer: [
    new ImageminPlugin({
      // Only apply this one to files equal to or over 8192 bytes
      filter: source => {
        if (source.byteLength >= 8192) {
          return true;
        }
 
        return false;
      },
      imageminOptions: {
        plugins: [["jpegtran", { progressive: true }]]
      }
    }),
    new ImageminPlugin({
      // Only apply this one to files under 8192
      filter: source => {
        if (source.byteLength < 8192) {
          return true;
        }
 
        return false;
      },
      imageminOptions: {
        plugins: [["jpegtran", { progressive: false }]]
      }
    })
  ]
};

Additional API

normalizeConfig(config)

The function normalizes configuration (converts plugins names and options to Functions) for using in imagemin package directly.

const imagemin = require("imagemin");
const { normalizeConfig } = require("imagemin-webpack");
const imageminConfig = normalizeConfig({
  plugins: [
    "jpegtran",
    [
      "pngquant",
      {
        quality: [0.6, 0.8]
      }
    ]
  ]
});
 
/* 
  console.log(imageminConfig);
  =>
  {
    plugins: [Function, Function],
    pluginsMeta: [ 
      { name: "imagemin-jpegtran", version: "x.x.x", options: {} }, 
      { name: "imagemin-pngquant", version: "x.x.x", options: { quality: [0.6, 0.8] } 
    ]
  }
*/
 
(async () => {
  const files = await imagemin(["images/*.{jpg,png}"], {
    destination: "build/images",
    plugins: imageminConfig.plugins
  });
 
  console.log(files);
  // => [{data: <Buffer 89 50 4e …>, path: 'build/images/foo.jpg'}, …]
})();
