craco Build Status PRs Welcome

Create React App Configuration Override is an easy and comprehensible configuration layer for create-react-app.

Get all the benefits of create-react-app and customization without using 'eject' by adding a single craco.config.js file at the root of your application and customize your eslint, babel, postcss configurations and many more.

All you have to do is create your app using create-react-app and customize the configuration with a craco.config.js file.

Support

  • CRA 3.*
  • Yarn
  • Yarn Workspace
  • NPM
  • Lerna (with or without hoisting)
  • Custom react-scripts version

Guide

Acknowledgements

We are grateful to @timarney the creator of react-app-rewired for his original idea.

Also, please note that the configuration style of this plugin has been greatly influenced by the way Vue CLI does it.

Please Note

By doing this you're breaking the "guarantees" that CRA provides. That is to say you now "own" the configs. No support will be provided. Proceed with caution.

You updated craco and everything falls apart

Before logging an issue, please consult the changelog.

If you can't find a solution to your problem in the changelog, log an issue and someone should help you quickly!

Installation

Install the plugin from npm:

$ yarn add @craco/craco

# OR

$ npm install @craco/craco --save

Create a craco.config.js file in the root directory:

my-app
├── node_modules
├── craco.config.js
└── package.json

Export your configuration as an object literal:

/* craco.config.js */

module.exports = {
    ...
}

or a function:

/* craco.config.js */

module.exports = function({ env }) {
    return {
        ...
    };
}

Update the existing calls to react-scripts in the scripts section of your package.json file to use the craco CLI:

/* package.json */

"scripts": {
-   "start": "react-scripts start",
+   "start": "craco start",
-   "build": "react-scripts build",
+   "build": "craco build"
-   "test": "react-scripts test",
+   "test": "craco test"
}

Start your app for development:

$ npm start

Or build your app:

$ npm run build

Custom location for craco.config.js

Both options support a relative or an absolute path.

1- package.json (Recommended)

You can change the location of the craco.config.js file by specifying a value for cracoConfig in your package.json file.

/* package.json */

{
    "cracoConfig": "config/craco-config-with-custom-name.js"
}

2- CLI (For backward compatibility)

You can also change the location of the craco.config.js file by specifying the --config CLI option. This option doesn't support Babel with Jest

/* package.json */

{
    "scripts": {
        "start": "craco start --config config/craco-config-with-custom-name.js"
    }
}

Configuration Overview

When the property mode is available there are 2 possible values:

  • extends: the provided configuration will extends the CRA settings (default mode)
  • file: the CRA settings will be reseted and you will provide an official configuration file for the plugin (postcss, eslint) that will supersede any settings.
const { when, whenDev, whenProd, whenTest, ESLINT_MODES, POSTCSS_MODES } = require("@craco/craco");

module.exports = {

when, whenDev, whenProd, whenTest

Usage for all those functions is the same, whenDev, whenProd, whenTest are shortcuts for when.

when(condition, fct, [unmetValue])

Usage:

const { when, whenDev } = require("@craco/craco");

module.exports = {
    eslint: {
        mode: ESLINT_MODES.file,
        configure: {
            formatter: when(process.env.NODE_ENV === "CI", require("eslint-formatter-vso"))
        }
    },
    webpack: {
        plugins: [
            new ConfigWebpackPlugin(),
            ...whenDev(() => [new CircularDependencyPlugin()], [])
        ]
    }
};

API

To integrate with other tools, it's usefull to have access to the configs generated by CRACO.

That's what CRACO APIs are for. The current API support Jest and Webpack configs.

createJestConfig

Accept a cracoConfig, a context object and options. The generated Jest config object is returned.

createJestConfig(cracoConfig, context = {}, options = { verbose: false, config: null })

Usage:

/* jest.config.js */

const { createJestConfig } = require("@craco/craco");

const cracoConfig = require("./craco.config.js");
const jestConfig = createJestConfig(cracoConfig);

module.exports = jestConfig;

createWebpackDevConfig & createWebpackProdConfig

Accept a cracoConfig, a context object and options. The generated Webpack config object is returned.

createWebpackDevConfig(cracoConfig, context = {}, options = { verbose: false, config: null }) createWebpackProdConfig(cracoConfig, context = {}, options = { verbose: false, config: null })

Usage:

/* webpack.config.js */

const { createWebpackDevConfig } = require("@craco/craco");

const cracoConfig = require("./craco.config.js");
const webpackConfig = createWebpackDevConfig(cracoConfig);

module.exports = webpackConfig;

Popular integrations

Develop a plugin

There are 4 functions available to a plugin:

  • overrideCracoConfig: Let a plugin customize the config object before it's process by craco.
  • overrideWebpackConfig: Let a plugin customize the webpack config that will be used by CRA.
  • overrideDevServerConfig: Let a plugin customize the dev server config that will be used by CRA.
  • overrideJestConfig: Let a plugin customize the Jest config that will be used by CRA.

Important:

Every functions must return the updated config object.

overrideCracoConfig

The function overrideCracoConfig let a plugin override the config object before it's process by craco.

If a plugin define the function, it will be called with the config object read from the craco.config.js file provided by the consumer.

The function must return a valid config object, otherwise craco will throw an error.

The function will be called with a single object argument having the following structure:

{
    cracoConfig: "The config object read from the craco.config.js file provided by the consumer",
    pluginOptions: "The plugin options provided by the consumer",
    context: {
        env: "The current NODE_ENV (development, production, etc..)",
        paths: "An object that contains all the paths used by CRA"
    }
}

Example

Plugin:

/* craco-plugin-log-craco-config.js */

module.exports = {
    overrideCracoConfig: ({ cracoConfig, pluginOptions, context: { env, paths } }) => {
        if (pluginOptions.preText) {
            console.log(pluginOptions.preText);
        }

        console.log(JSON.stringify(craconfig, null, 4));

        // Always return the config object.
        return cracoConfig;
    }
};

Registration (in a craco.config.js file):

    ]
};

overrideWebpackConfig

The function overrideWebpackConfig let a plugin override the webpack config object after it's been customized by craco.

Utility functions

A few utility functions are provided by craco to develop a plugin:

const { getLoader, getLoaders, removeLoader, loaderByName, throwUnexpectedConfigError } = require("@craco/craco");

getLoader

Retrieve the first loader that match the specified criteria from the webpack config.

Returns:

{
    isFound: true | false,
    match: {
        loader,
        parent,
        index
    }
}

Usage:

const { getLoader, loaderByName } = require("@craco/craco");

const { isFound, match } = getLoader(webpackConfig, loaderByName("eslint-loader"));

if (isFound) {
    // do stuff...
}

getLoaders

Retrieve all the loaders that match the specified criteria from the webpack config.

Returns:

{
    hasFoundAny: true | false,
    matches: [
        {
            loader,
            parent,
            index
        }
    ]
}

Usage:

const { getLoaders, loaderByName } = require("@craco/craco");

const { hasFoundAny, matches } = getLoaders(webpackConfig, loaderByName("babel-loader"));

if (hasFoundAny) {
    matches.forEach(x => {
        // do stuff...
    });
}

removeLoaders

Remove all the loaders that match the specified criteria from the webpack config.

Returns:

{
    hasRemovedAny:: true | false,
    removedCount:: int
}

Usage:

const { removeLoaders, loaderByName } = require("@craco/craco");

removeLoaders(webpackConfig, loaderByName("eslint-loader"));

addBeforeLoader

Add a new loader before the loader that match specified criteria to the webpack config.

Returns:

{
    isAdded: true | false
}

Usage:

const { addBeforeLoader, loaderByName } = require("@craco/craco");

const myNewWebpackLoader = {
    loader: require.resolve("tslint-loader")
};

addBeforeLoader(webpackConfig, loaderByName("eslint-loader"), myNewWebpackLoader);

addBeforeLoaders

Add a new loader before all the loaders that match specified criteria to the webpack config.

Returns:

{
    isAdded: true | false,
    addedCount: int
}

Usage:

const { addBeforeLoaders, loaderByName } = require("@craco/craco");

const myNewWebpackLoader = {
    loader: require.resolve("tslint-loader")
};

addBeforeLoaders(webpackConfig, loaderByName("eslint-loader"), myNewWebpackLoader);

addAfterLoader

Add a new loader after the loader that match specified criteria to the webpack config.

Returns:

{
    isAdded: true | false
}

Usage:

const { addAfterLoader, loaderByName } = require("@craco/craco");

const myNewWebpackLoader = {
    loader: require.resolve("tslint-loader")
};

addAfterLoader(webpackConfig, loaderByName("eslint-loader"), myNewWebpackLoader);

addAfterLoaders

Add a new loader after all the loaders that match specified criteria to the webpack config.

Returns:

{
    isAdded: true | false,
    addedCount: int
}

Usage:

const { addAfterLoaders, loaderByName } = require("@craco/craco");

const myNewWebpackLoader = {
    loader: require.resolve("tslint-loader")
};

addAfterLoaders(webpackConfig, loaderByName("eslint-loader"), myNewWebpackLoader);

throwUnexpectedConfigError

Throw an error if the webpack configuration changes and does not match your expectations. (For example, getLoader cannot find a loader and isFound is false.) create-react-app might update the structure of their webpack config, so it is very important to show a helpful error message when something breaks.

Raises an error and crashes Node.js:

$ yarn start
yarn run v1.12.3
$ craco start
/path/to/your/app/craco.config.js:23
            throw new Error(
            ^

    Error: Can't find eslint-loader in the webpack config!

    This error probably occurred because you updated react-scripts or craco. Please try updating craco-less to the latest version:

       $ yarn upgrade craco-less

    Or:

       $ npm update craco-less

    If that doesn't work, craco-less needs to be fixed to support the latest version.
    Please check to see if there's already an issue in the ndbroadbent/craco-less repo:

       * https://github.com/ndbroadbent/craco-less/issues?q=is%3Aissue+webpack+eslint-loader

    If not, please open an issue and we'll take a look. (Or you can send a PR!)

    You might also want to look for related issues in the craco and create-react-app repos:

       * https://github.com/sharegate/craco/issues?q=is%3Aissue+webpack+eslint-loader
       * https://github.com/facebook/create-react-app/issues?q=is%3Aissue+webpack+eslint-loader

    at throwUnexpectedConfigError (/path/to/your/app/craco.config.js:23:19)
    ...

Usage:

const { getLoader, loaderByName, throwUnexpectedConfigError } = require("@craco/craco");

// Create a helper function if you need to call this multiple times
const throwError = (message, githubIssueQuery) =>
    throwUnexpectedConfigError({
        packageName: "craco-less",
        githubRepo: "ndbroadbent/craco-less",
        message,
        githubIssueQuery,
    });

const { isFound, match } = getLoader(webpackConfig, loaderByName("eslint-loader"));

if (!isFound) {
    throwError("Can't find eslint-loader in the webpack config!", "webpack+eslint-loader")
}

Options:

{
    message: "An error message explaining what went wrong",
    packageName: "NPM package name",
    githubRepo: "GitHub repo where people can open an issue. Format: username/repo",
    githubIssueQuery: "Search string to find related issues"
}

Only message is required.

Verbose logging

To activate verbose logging specify the CLI option --verbose

/* package.json */

{
    "scripts": {
        "start": "craco start --verbose"
    }
}
