webpack-fix-style-only-entries

This is a small plugin developed to solve the problem of having a style only entry (css/sass/less) generating an extra js file.

You can find more info by reading the following issues:

View on: Github - npm

How it works

It just find js files from chunks of css only entries and remove the js file from the compilation.

How to use

install using your package manager of choice:

  • npm: npm install -D webpack-fix-style-only-entries
  • yarn: yarn add -D webpack-fix-style-only-entries

Require and add to webpack.config plugins.

Warning: this plugin does not load styles or split your bundles, it just fix chunks of css only entries by removing the (almost) empty js file.

// ... other plugins
const MiniCssExtractPlugin = require("mini-css-extract-plugin");
const FixStyleOnlyEntriesPlugin = require("webpack-fix-style-only-entries");

module.exports = {
    entry: {
        "main" : "./app/main.js"
        "styles": ["./common/styles.css", "./app/styles.css"]
    },
    module: {
            {
                test: /\.css$/,
                use: [
                    MiniCssExtractPlugin.loader,
                    'css-loader',
                ]
            },
        ]
    },
    plugins: [
        new FixStyleOnlyEntriesPlugin(),
        new MiniCssExtractPlugin({
            filename: "[name].[chunkhash:8].css",
        }),
    ],
};

Options

Name Type Default Description
extensions Array[string] ["less", "scss", "css"] file extensions for styles
silent boolean false supress logs to console
ignore string or RegExp undefined match resource to be ignored

Example config:

// to identify only 'foo' and 'bar' extensions as styles
new FixStyleOnlyEntriesPlugin({ extensions:['foo', 'bar'] }),

Recipes

I use a javascript entry to styles:

Give an especial extension to your file (.css.js for example) and configure new FixStyleOnlyEntriesPlugin({ extensions:['css.js'] }). See: https://github.com/fqborges/webpack-fix-style-only-entries/issues/8.

I use webpack-hot-middleware:

Configure this plugin as new FixStyleOnlyEntriesPlugin({ ignore: 'webpack-hot-middleware' }). See: https://github.com/fqborges/webpack-fix-style-only-entries/issues/12 and https://github.com/fqborges/webpack-fix-style-only-entries/blob/master/test/cases/css-entry-with-ignored-hmr/webpack.config.js.
