npm-install-webpack-plugin

Speed up development by automatically installing & saving dependencies with Webpack.

Seamlessly works with:

  • Javascript (e.g. require, import)
  • CSS (e.g. @import "~bootstrap")
  • Webpack loaders (e.g. babel-loader, file-loader, etc.)
  • Webpack's resolve.alias & resolve.root configuration.

Currently does not support:

  • Inline loaders (e.g. bundle?lazy!./App.js)

Why?

It sucks to Ctrl-C your build script & server just to install a dependency you didn't know you needed until now.

Instead, use require or import how you normally would and npm install will happen automatically install & save missing dependencies while you work!

Installation

$ npm install --save-dev npm-install-webpack-plugin

Usage

In your webpack.config.js:

plugins: [
  new NpmInstallPlugin(),
],

If you have an .npmrc file in your project, those arguments will be used:

save=true
save-exact=true

Alternatively, you can provide your own arguments to npm install:

plugins: [
  new NpmInstallPlugin({
    ...
    cacheMin: 999999  // --cache-min=999999 (prefer NPM cached version)
    registry: "..."   // --registry="..."
    save: true,       // --save
    saveDev: true,    // --save-dev
    saveExact: true,  // --save-exact
    ...
  }),
],
