Over the past few weeks I’ve been migrating our asset pipeline at Spatie from Laravel Elixir (a gulp wrapper) to webpack. Between having endless possibilities, the occasional incomplete section in the docs, and the fact that everyone has slightly different needs for their asset pipeline (which makes examples hard), it has surely been an adventure. I’m going to do a quick summary of my goals, and how I achieved them with webpack. Hopefully there will be some useful snippets in here for when you’re setting up your own webpack configuration.
I’m not going to explain any basic concepts. If you’re new to webpack, I’d recommend you to go through Webpack Your Bags on madewithlove’s blog first. On the other hand, if you just want a tl;dr in the form of a webpack config file, our base configuration is hosted on Github.
