Adds the template option [lc-name] that will substitute a lower-case name
Notice: It is recommended that the plugin webpack-chunk-renamer-plugin be used instead of this one. It does everything this does and then some and I'll likely not continue to maintain this plugin in the future.
entry:Console: './src/Console/Console.js'Site: './src/Site/Site.js'
Then configure the output this way to create a library with the name exposed as a global object.
output:filename: '[name].js'path: pathlibrary: '[name]'libraryTarget: 'umd'libraryExport: "default"publicPath: ''
The library will export Console and Site, but will also name the .js files Console.js and Site.js. I prefer that the files be console.js and site.js, which is consistent with many libraries. Setting the entry points as console and site will do that, but then the exported global variables will be console and site as well.
This plugin adds a new template: [lc-name] that will convert the name to lower case. It can be used in place of [name] to specify the file name:
output:filename: '[lc-name].js'path: pathlibrary: '[name]'libraryTarget: 'umd'libraryExport: "default"publicPath: ''
Now the exported global variables will be Console and Site and the files console.js and site.js.
npm install webpack-lowercase-name --save-dev
Require the plugin in webpack.config.js:
const LowerCaseNamePlugin = ;
And add to the list of plugins:
An Issue with splitChunks
If utilized with splitChunks, the generated filename may not be as expected. For example, suppose we apply the above example and this splitChunks configuration to create a vendor chunk:
optimization:splitChunks:cacheGroups:commons:test: /[\\/]node_modules[\\/]/name: 'vendor'chunks: 'all'
The generated output file will be vendor.vendor.js. The reason is that splitChunks will look at the generated filename and ensure it will be unique if more than one chunk is generated. The code tests to ensure either [id] or [name] are present. If neither is present, it prefixes [id]. to the filename, creating [id].[lc-name].js, which creates the file vendor.vendor.js. The fix for this problem is to specify the name for chunked files separately using [name] instead of [lc-name]:
output:filename: '[lc-name].js'chunkFilename: '[name].js'path: pathlibrary: '[name]'libraryTarget: 'umd'libraryExport: "default"publicPath: ''
