Plugins

The plugins option is used to customize the webpack build process in a variety of ways. webpack comes with a variety built-in plugins available under webpack.[plugin-name]. See this page for a list of plugins and documentation but note that there are a lot more out in the community.

Note: This page only discusses using plugins, however if you are interested in writing your own please visit Writing a Plugin.

plugins

array

A list of webpack plugins. For example, when multiple bundles share some of the same dependencies, the CommonsChunkPlugin could be useful to extract those dependencies into a shared bundle to avoid duplication. This could be added like so:

module.exports = {
  //...
  plugins: [
    new webpack.optimize.CommonsChunkPlugin({
      //...
    })
  ]
};

A more complex example, using multiple plugins, might look something like this:

var webpack = require('webpack');
// importing plugins that do not come by default in webpack
var ExtractTextPlugin = require('extract-text-webpack-plugin');
var DashboardPlugin = require('webpack-dashboard/plugin');

// adding plugins to your configuration
module.exports = {
  //...
  plugins: [
    // build optimization plugins
    new webpack.optimize.CommonsChunkPlugin({
      name: 'vendor',
      filename: 'vendor-[hash].min.js',
    }),
    new webpack.optimize.UglifyJsPlugin({
      compress: {
        warnings: false,
        drop_console: false,
      }
    }),
    new ExtractTextPlugin({
      filename: 'build.min.css',
      allChunks: true,
    }),
    new webpack.IgnorePlugin(/^\.\/locale$/, /moment$/),
    // compile time plugins
    new webpack.DefinePlugin({
      'process.env.NODE_ENV': '"production"',
    }),
    // webpack-dev-server enhancement plugins
    new DashboardPlugin(),
    new webpack.HotModuleReplacementPlugin(),
  ]
};
