    Replace loader for Webpack

    Perform replacements (plain and regular expression) in the contents loaded by the loader.

    Install:

    $ npm install --save-dev string-replace-loader

    With release of 2.0.0 the loader is expected to be used in Node v4+ environment. Support for Node v3 and lower was dropped, but you can install and use the loader version of 1.3.0 in older environments.

    Usage:

    Loader allows to perform replacements in a way String.prototype.replace() does (loader uses it internally). It means that if you want to replace all occurrences, you should use RegExp-like string in options.search with g flag in options.flags, etc.

    Plain replacement:

    Plain string replacement, no need to escape RegEx special characters.

    In your webpack.config.js:

    module.exports = {
      // ...
      module: {
        rules: [
          {
            test: /fileInWhichJQueryIsUndefined\.js$/,
            loader: 'string-replace-loader',
            options: {
              search: '$',
              replace: 'window.jQuery',
            }
          }
        ]
      }
    }

    RegEx replacement:

    To achieve regular expression replacement you should specify the flags option (as an empty string if you do not want any flags). In this case, search and flags are being passed to the RegExp constructor and this means that you should escape RegEx special characters in search if you want it to be replaced as a string.

    In your webpack.config.js:

    module.exports = {
      // ...
      module: {
        rules: [
          {
            test: /fileInWhichJQueryIsUndefined\.js$/,
            loader: 'string-replace-loader',
            options: {
              search: '\$',
              replace: 'window.jQuery',
              flags: 'i'
            }
          }
        ]
      }
    }

    Multiple replacement:

    Also, you can pass an array of search-replace pairs this way:

    In your webpack.config.js:

    module.exports = {
      // ...
      module: {
        rules: [
          {
            test: /\.js$/,
            loader: 'string-replace-loader',
            options: {
              multiple: [
                 { search: 'jQuery', replace: 'window.$' },
                 { search: '_', replace: 'window.lodash' }
              ]
            }
          }
        ]
      }
    }

    Strict mode replacement:

    You can enable strict mode to ensure that the replacement was performed. Loader will throw exception if nothing was replaced or if search or replace options were not specified.

    In your webpack.config.js:

    module.exports = {
      // ...
      module: {
        rules: [
          {
            test: /fileInWhichJQueryIsUndefined\.js$/,
            loader: 'string-replace-loader',
            options: {
              search: 'jQuery',
              replace: 'window.$',
              strict: true
            }
          }
        ]
      }
    }
