    Webpack Promise Shim Plugin

    The problem

    Webpack, in generated builds, uses promises for things like lazy-loading, chunking, etc.

    Problem is, it relies on window.Promise being set, which ain't the case in IE or other older browsers. You can polyfill window.Promise, but that's a bad idea if you're trying to run on 3rd party domains you don't own.

    This plugin allows you to specify your own promise polyfill for webpack to use, without shimming window.Promose

    Install

    npm install --save-dev webpack-promise-shim-plugin

    Use

    const { WebpackPromiseShimPlugin } = require('webpack-promise-shim-plugin');
     
    ...
     
    plugins: [
        new WebpackPromiseShimPlugin({
            module: 'zalgo-promise/src',
            key:    'ZalgoPromise'
        }),
    ]

    Notes

    • Only testing with Webpack 3, your mileage may very on other versions
    • Only works right now in conjunction with webpack.NamedModulesPlugin

    Install

    npm i webpack-promise-shim-plugin
