Import whole directory in Webpack(er)August 14, 2017
Like an amateur I’ve been importing all my assets one-by-one when using Webpacker to get them all listed in the app manifest. It’s annoying when adding or removing an image to then update the reference in
import ‘./arrow-right.svg’; import ‘./badge-maintenance.svg’; // And so on.
Turns out, there’s a better way and you can reduce it all down to one single line of code. Use
require.context and pass a regular expression to identify which files you want to import. Boom.
require.context(‘./‘, true, /\.(svg|png)$/igm);
