Proxy Content from URL with Webpack Dev Server

An application I’m working with has a large amount of static files (path starting with ‘/files/’) deployed on a mounted volume in Docker. They are subsequently served via nginx. for local development, I thought of two options: Add files to the local dev server (e.g. copy assets) Build a proxy to pipe the request to […]

Load FontAwesome Fonts with Webpack 2

TL;DR:: Add the (s)css dependency to your main (s)css file and specify where to find the fonts too. Then use the proper loaders in your webpack.config.js file. The past few days I had trouble loading the font-awesome fonts with webpack. I tried quite a few solutions: Using the font-awesome-sass-loader Manual solution webpack + font-awesome test […]

Make Electron work with Knex.js

To make my life easier (and because I hate writing SQL statements), I thought of installing an ORM. After some search, I’ve decided to use knex.

So, one adapts… and the option in angular-cli makes things less painful. What was painful was to convert a bunch of LESS […]

Electron and WebPack – Live Reloads

Angular 2 Angular CLI (because it makes it easy to generate boilerplate code) SASS (SCSS in fact) Webpack 2 and Babel After a lot of trial and error (and also […]

Rise and Fall of WebPack Dev Server in My Project

Disclaimer: This is a log of my journey developing an electron app. I’m working at a small electron app and I was experimenting with webpack-dev-server, so I can try to do live reloads. First, I’ve started the app as a web app (no electron dependencies whatsoever). At this stage, running:

off npm run would […]
