Build Status Coverage Status Version License Dependencies DevDependencies

A lightweight solution for the server-side rendering of webpack-built applications.

Why do we need it?

With webpack, we can require any files by using loaders:

// CSS Modules
// @see https://www.npmjs.com/package/css-loader#modules
import style from './css/style.css';
 
// Require a image file
<img src={require('./img/avatar.jpg')} />

But you'll get an error in server-side rendering, because it is not supported by Node.js.

webpack-isomorphic is a lightweight, easy-to-use solution to solve this issue, and make your client-side codes work on server too.

Usage

Installation

# for webpack 4 
npm install --save webpack-isomorphic@4
# for webpack 3 
npm install --save webpack-isomorphic@3

webpack.config.js

const IsomorphicPlugin = require('webpack-isomorphic/plugin');
 
const isomorphicPlugin = new IsomorphicPlugin({
    extensions: ['jpg', 'png', 'gif', 'css'],
    // assetsFilePath: 'webpack.assets.json'
});
 
module.exports = {
    // The base directory of your source files
    context: __dirname + '/src',
    // ...
    plugins: [
        //...
        isomorphicPlugin
    ]
};

Server-side codes

const webpackIsomorphic = require('webpack-isomorphic');
 
// The base directory of your built files
webpackIsomorphic.install(__dirname + '/dist', {
    cache: process.env['NODE_ENV'] !== 'development',
    // assetsFilePath: __dirname + '/dist/webpack.assets.json'
});
 
//...

Enjoy!
