Each time you change a Solidity contract, Webpack will detect the change, recompile the Solidity files, and re-run your Truffle migrations. The updated Solidity contract will be Hot updated in teh browser if enabled.
When you run a production build, the contracts will be bundled into your main bundle for easy deployment.
You can see this plugin in operation in the Truffle+Webpack Demo App
A project by ConsenSys and @johnmcdowall.
$ npm install --save-dev truffle-solidity-loader
Add the appropriate config to your
loaders section of your Webpack config:
test: /\.sol/loader: 'truffle-solidity'
The loader will detect a
truffle-config.js for Windows users) config file in your project and use that for configuration.
Importantly, you will need to specify the location of your
migrations directory in the
truffle.js file like so:
You can also override the Truffle config using a loader querystring as outlined below:
test: /\.sol/loader: 'truffle-solidity?migrations_directory='+path
migrations_directory: The path to a directory containing your Truffle migrations
network: A network name to use
network_id: A network id to use
