NPM version Build status Dependency Status

Webpack asset pipeline hook for Sails.

1. Install

$ npm install sails-webpack --save

2. Configure

a. Disable the built-in Grunt hook

// .sailsrc 
  "hooks": {
    "grunt": false

b. Set your environment.

By default, Sails (and express) sets NODE_ENV=development. In this setting, webpack will watch for changes in the directories you specify in your config/webpack.js.

NODE_ENV webpack mode description
development Rebuilds on file changes during runtime
staging or production Build bundle once on load.

c. Configure Webpack

This hook uses standard Webpack Configuration. Below is an example of using webpack to compile a React.js application located in assets/js/.

// config/webpack.js 
var webpack = require('webpack');
// compile js assets into a single bundle file 
module.exports.webpack = {
  options: {
    devtool: 'eval',
    entry: [
    output: {
      path: path.resolve(__dirname, '.tmp/public/js'),
      filename: 'bundle.js'
    plugins: [
      new webpack.HotModuleReplacementPlugin(),
      new webpack.NoErrorsPlugin()
    module: {
      loaders: [
        // requires "npm install --save-dev babel-loader" 
        { test: /\.js$/, loaders: ['babel-loader?stage=0'] },
        { test: /\.css$/, loader: 'style!css' }
  // docs: 
  watchOptions: {
    aggregateTimeout: 300
