Compilation Hooks

The Compilation module is used by the Compiler to create new compilations (or builds). A compilation instance has access to all modules and their dependencies (most of which are circular references). It is the literal compilation of all the modules in the dependency graph of an application. During the compilation phase, modules are loaded, sealed, optimized, chunked, hashed and restored.

The Compilation class also extends Tapable and provides the following lifecycle hooks. They can be tapped the same way as compiler hooks:

compilation.hooks.someHook.tap(/* ... */);

As with the compiler, tapAsync and tapPromise may also be available depending on the type of hook.

buildModule

SyncHook

rebuildModule

SyncHook

Fired before rebuilding a module.

additionalChunkAssets

SyncHook

Create additional assets for the chunks.

Parameters: chunks

records

SyncHook

...

Parameters: compilation records

additionalAssets

AsyncSeriesHook

Create additional assets for the compilation. This hook can be used to download an image, for example:

compilation.hooks.additionalAssets.tapAsync('MyPlugin', callback => {
  download('https://img.shields.io/npm/v/webpack.svg', function(resp) {
    if(resp.status === 200) {
      compilation.assets['webpack-version.svg'] = toAsset(resp);
      callback();
    } else {
      callback(new Error('[webpack-example-plugin] Unable to download the image'));
    }
  });
});

optimizeChunkAssets

AsyncSeriesHook

Optimize any chunk assets. The assets are stored in compilation.assets. A Chunk has a property files which points to all files created by a chunk. Any additional chunk assets are stored in compilation.additionalChunkAssets.

Parameters: chunks

Here's an example that simply adds a banner to each chunk.

compilation.hooks
  .optimizeChunkAssets
  .tapAsync('MyPlugin', (chunks, callback) => {
    chunks.forEach(chunk => {
      chunk.files.forEach(file => {
        compilation.assets[file] = new ConcatSource(
          '\/**Sweet Banner**\/',
          '\n',
          compilation.assets[file]
        );
      });
    });

    callback();
  });

afterOptimizeChunkAssets

SyncHook

The chunk assets have been optimized.

Parameters: chunks

Here's an example plugin from @boopathi that outputs exactly what went into each chunk.

compilation.hooks.afterOptimizeChunkAssets.tap('MyPlugin', chunks => {
  chunks.forEach(chunk => {
    console.log({
      id: chunk.id,
      name: chunk.name,
      includes: chunk.modules.map(module => module.request)
    });
  });
});
