A Webpack loader for injecting code into modules via their dependencies

build status npm version npm downloads


This is particularly useful for writing tests where mocking things inside your module-under-test is sometimes necessary before execution.

inject-loader was inspired by, and builds upon ideas introduced in jauco/webpack-injectable.


Documentation: Using loaders

Use the inject loader by adding the inject-loader! inline loader when you use require, this will return a function that can used in test code to modify the injected module.

By default all require statements in an injected module will be altered to be replaced with an injector, though if a replacement it not specified the default values will be used.


Given some code in a module like this:

// MyStore.js

var Dispatcher = require('lib/dispatcher');
var EventEmitter = require('events').EventEmitter;
var handleAction = require('lib/handle_action');

Dispatcher.register(handleAction, 'MyStore');

You can manipulate it’s dependencies when you come to write tests as follows:

// If no flags are provided when using the loader then
// all require statements will be wrapped in an injector
MyModuleInjector = require('inject-loader!MyStore')
MyModule = MyModuleInjector({
  'lib/dispatcher': DispatcherMock,
  'events': EventsMock,
  'lib/handle_action': HandleActionMock

There are a few examples of complete test setups for both Webpack 1, 2, 3 & 4 in the example folder.



You can’t perform that action at this time.
