Is this a regression?

Yes, the previous version in which this bug was not present was: 9.0.0-rc2


I've got this problem in storybook/angular (but it is not a storybook problem, because it uses @angular/devkit webpack configuration)

styles configuration in rc2:

  test: /\.less$/,
  use: [
    { loader: 'raw-loader' },
    { loader: 'postcss-loader', options: [Object] },
    { loader: 'less-loader', options: [Object] }

in rc4:

  test: /\.less$/,
  use: [
      loader: '/Users/nikita.balakirev/Desktop/Projects/ccm_portal/node_modules/@angular-devkit/build-angular/node_modules/raw-loader/dist/cjs.js'
      loader: '/Users/nikita.balakirev/Desktop/Projects/ccm_portal/node_modules/postcss-loader/src/index.js',
      options: [Object]
      loader: '/Users/nikita.balakirev/Desktop/Projects/ccm_portal/node_modules/less-loader/dist/cjs.js',
      options: [Object]

I have "raw-loader": "0.5.1" (which was used in rc2 because of not direct loader import), but in rc4 version of raw-loader forced to 4.0.0 and it causes for me following problem - raw loader loads component.less files as es modules and not as strings (it was expected).
This problem is similar to webpack-contrib/style-loader#123 when some guys needed to call require(component.css).toString() directly. But i think raw-loader should do it automatically instead of returning modules.

Hi, this seems related to the fact that storybook doesn't use @ngtools/webpack but ngx-template-loader to inject Angular templates and styles. While @ngtools/webpack supports multiple versions of raw-loader, ngx-template-loader which is used directly by storybook only supports the older versions.

Storybook, uses parts of the Angular CLI webpack configurations to build an app: These config are not designed to be consumed by 3rd parties and their dependencies are tightly coupled to the package versions installed by @angular-devkit/build-angular, To extend the CLI configurations it's recommended to use public API's and create a custom builder that extends the build builder. That being said, when extending a builder we can鈥檛 support everyone鈥檚 custom loader and it will be up to the library author to make sure that their extended webpack config is compatible with the dependencies of @angular-devkit/build-angular.

I suggest that an issue is filled with storybook and ngx-template-loader.
