null-loader

npm node deps tests chat size

A webpack loader that returns an empty module.

One use for this loader is to silence modules imported by a dependency. Say, for example, your project relies on an ES6 library that imports a polyfill you don't need, so removing it will cause no loss in functionality.

Getting Started

To begin, you'll need to install null-loader:

$ npm install null-loader --save-dev

Then add the loader to your webpack config. For example:

// webpack.config.js
const path = require('path');

module.exports = {
  module: {
    rules: [
      {
        // Test for a polyfill (or any file) and it won't be included in your
        // bundle
        test: path.resolve(__dirname, 'node_modules/library/polyfill.js'),
        use: 'null-loader',
      },
    ],
  },
};

And run webpack via your preferred method.
