yarn add validatorjs-webpack-plugin --dev#ornpm i validatorjs-webpack-plugin --dev
In your webpack config:
const ValidatorjsPlugin = ;moduleexports =plugins:// To remove all locales except for "en"localesToKeep: 'en';
validatorjs comes with a bunch of locale files for translations in many languages. It's very likely you don't actually use all of those, and they take up most of the bundle size, which ends up bloating your bundles.
What does it do?
It removes all languages that you don't need from the bundle. It adds a simple rule for webpacks
IgnorePlugin as describes in this issue posted on the validatorjs repo.
I mainly decided to move it into a package so I wouldn't need to copy/paste the rule into all the projects 😅
This was heavily inspired by the
moment-locales-webpack-plugin, which does a similar thing for the moment js library.
