Extending the pcf-scripts' webpack


Is there a way to extend the standard PCF CLI's webpack? In one of the project, I want to use webpack to include additional files to be copied to the build (out) folder.

Re: Extending the pcf-scripts' webpack

There isn't any kind of eject mechansim - but you can edit the webpackconfig in the node_modules/pcf-scripts/webpackconfig.js


This is technically unsupported and be careful that you don't loose your edits if you restore the npm packages.


I think if you start changing the webpack then you are essentially going to go it alone and will need to manually pack your controls going forwards. 


What is it that you want to change in the webpack config? You should use the  <resources> in the control manifest to add additional html/css/images/js/resx

@ScottDurow is there a way now to include js files? It was possible in earlier versions but it's not possible now or you know something that I don't know.

We had lib tag for including libraries in manifest during private preview but it was removed due to potential conflict and upgrade issues across components from multiple sources.

Currently supported mechanism is to include shared js via import directly into control index.ts. see example here -

We are looking into getting webpack enabled shared libs for future release so that code can be shared across controls.

Looking forward when this shared library can be implemented.
