Webpack plugin to use in addition to extract-text-webpack-plugin to create a second css bundle, processed to be rtl.

This uses rtlcss under the hood, please refer to its documentation for supported properties.

Check out the webpack-rtl-example to see an example of an app using the rtl-css-loader and webpack-rtl-plugin.


$ npm install webpack-rtl-plugin


Add the plugin to your webpack configuration:

import WebpackRTLPlugin from 'webpack-rtl-plugin'

module.exports = {
  entry: path.join(__dirname, 'src/index.js'),
  output: {
    path: path.resolve(__dirname, 'dist'),
    filename: 'bundle.js',
  module: {
    loaders: [
        test: /\.css$/,
        loader: ExtractTextPlugin.extract('style-loader', 'css-loader'),
  plugins: [
    new ExtractTextPlugin('style.css'),
    new WebpackRTLPlugin(),

This will create the normal style.css and an additionnal style.rtl.css.
