    Usage

    Documentation: Using loaders

    This is a ripoff of bundle-loader that uses promises instead of callbacks. It only implements so-called lazy bundle-loader mode—that is, require returns a function that, when invoked, returns a promise that resolves to the module.

    require: (string) -> () -> Promise<module>

    It's up to you to specify your Promise library of choice as a parameter.

    // Assuming you use Bluebird
    var load = require("promise?bluebird!./file.js");
     
    // The chunk is not requested until you call the load function
    load().then(function(file) {
     
    });

    If a promise library is already loaded externally you can specify 'global'.

    You can optionally specify a name for your chunk after a comma:

    var load = require("promise?bluebird,editor!./editor.js");

    This can be useful for single-page apps because you can later extract filenames from Webpack-generated stats and pre-load specific bundles if you know user's going to hit them.

    The bundle name may include [filename], which will be replaced with the filename, and [name], which omits the extension. This is useful for when you want to configure loaders in Webpack configuration without specifying precise filenames—for example, by a suffix:

    {
      test: /\.i18n\.json$/,
      loader: 'promise?global,[name].i18n'
    }
