Webpack Config

Webpack Config is a significant part of the component archetype. They help with compiling and bundling your React component code. Below is the component config to use with webpack:

- webpack.config.coverage.js:  When running coverage test
- webpack.config.js: When building your app for production
- webpack.config.test.js: When running tests

Migrate to Webpack v2

In order to keep pace with the latest trend, our new component archetype also finished migration from webpack v1 to webpack v2. Webpack 2 offers better performance, improved bundling and a much nicer experience when configuring it. For migration to webpack v2, please read more here.


The webpack configs in the component archetype are separated into partials and compose into a single config using webpack-config-composer that's passed to webpack.

We use webpack-config-composer to compose webpack config partials under /partial folder. Under component config to use with webpack above, we add partials and profiles to the composer, and then selectively compose them into a single config object for webpack.

Below are the partial configs for new component archetype webpack structure:

|- electrode-archetype-react-component/config/webpack
|  |- partial
|  |  |- babel.js
|  |  |- define.js
|  |  |- fonts.js
|  |  |- images.js
|  |  |- json.js
|  |  |- optimize.js
|  |  |- sourcemaps.js
|  |  |- styles.js

After understanding the new Component Archetype Structure, it's time to generate electrode components by using latest electrode generators. With generator-electrode, we can create a dynamic and performant Lerna structured Electrode Components. Let's explore and personalize this in our next section, Create an Electrode Component.
