worker loader module for webpack

worker loader for webpack

Documentation: Using loaders

Import the worker file:

// main.js 
var MyWorker = require("worker!./file.js");
var worker = new MyWorker();
worker.postMessage({a: 1});
worker.onmessage = function(event) {...};
worker.addEventListener("message", function(event) {...});

You can also inline the worker as a blob with the inline parameter:

var MyWorker = require("worker?inline!./file.js");

The worker file can import dependencies just like any other file:

// file.js 
var _ = require('lodash')
var o = {foo: 'foo'}
_.has(o, 'foo') // true 

You can even use ES6 modules if you have the babel-loader configured:

// file.js 
import _ from 'lodash'
let o = {foo: 'foo'}
_.has(o, 'foo') // true
