webpack v1 is deprecated. We encourage all developers to upgrade to webpack 2.
A list of open ideas.
- Support globs in require statements so you can easily bundle static assets etc. Webpack-dev-server should monitor the glob for new files.
- Allow defining plugins in the webpack configuration file so you don’t need an extra file for trivial custom loaders
- Allow adding command line parameters to the webpack CLI from the configuration file so it’s easier to change the webpack configuration inside the configuration file.
- Allow the option of excluding of some paths (eg ‘node_modules’) from triggering warnings / errors. Example use case: ProtobufJS triggers a bunch of warnings - it’s not relevant to me.
- Allow watching of files in webpack-dev-server specifically (using glob). If using something like PostCSS or Sass, changes in
@import-ed CSS files aren’t watched.
test on loaders to be a function for dynamic inclusion of assets.
