Webpack quotes module

Reached already the maximum speed of webpack? Try psychology.

Reduce the feeling of slow compilation by providing great meaningful quote to think about.

Build Status


In your webpack config you have to add a plugin to the configuration:

if (environment === 'dev') {
    config.plugins.push(new WebpackQuotesPlugin({ notifications: true }));


Plugin is instantiated by default with the following config which can be overwritten:

    notifications: false,
    additionalQuotes: []
    secondsToApology: 20

Parameter secondsToApology will be used to provide a time point after which webpack will add an apology for the long build.

Every additional quote should be listed in the following structure:

    "text": "“quote text”",
    "author": "quote author"


If you have some more ideas how we can enrich the experience you're welcome to create the PR.

Have a nice day!
