For Vue CLI projects that use aliases, plugin will not resolve alias imports #5

For a component that looks like this:

// src/components/SomeComponent.vue

import loadingMixin from '@/mixins/loadingMixin' // located at 'src/mixins/loadingMixin.js'

export default {
  mixins: [loadingMixin]
  // other component instance options

And then running the Zeplin CLI with this plugin, zeplin connect -p zeplin-cli-connect-plugin-vue, user will see an error like the following:

Neither '@/mixins/loadingMixin.vue' nor '@/mixins/loadingMixin.js(x)' or '@/mixins/loadingMixin/index.js(x)' or '@/mixins/loadingMixin/index.ts(x)' could be found in 'src/components/SomeComponent'

This is even though the alias for '@': 'src' has already been defined correctly for the Vue CLI project. Same issue for other custom aliases, e.g. if we had defined in vue.config.js that '@mixin': 'src/mixin'

Fortunately, vue-docgen-api provides an option when running parse, to pass in the aliases that should be used when resolving imports. i.e. the docgen API can resolve imports the same way Webpack does, if we know how to get the Webpack aliases for it.
For now, to cover the most common-by-far use-case, we will just support aliases defined by Vue CLI projects, and at least not fail in other cases. We could support non-CLI cases in the future.


  1. vue-docgen-api alias support:
  2. Getting the computed Webpack config from Vue CLI projects:
