# ESBuild

# Note

Note: All plugins require ESBuild version ^0.14.0 as peerDependencies.

# alias path

ESBuild plugin for alias replacement.

npm install esbuild-plugin-alias-path --save-dev
yarn add esbuild-plugin-alias-path --save-dev
pnpm install esbuild-plugin-alias-path --save-dev
import { build } from 'esbuild';
import { esbuildPluginAliasPath } from 'esbuild-plugin-alias-path';

(async () => {
  const res = await build({
    entryPoints: ['./src/main.ts'],
    bundle: true,
    outfile: './dist/main.js',
    plugins: [
      esbuildPluginAliasPath({
        alias: { '@foo': './src/alias/foo.ts' },
      }),
    ],
  });
})();

// src/main.ts
import { FOO } from '@foo';
console.log(FOO);

// src/alias/foo.ts
export const FOO = 'foo';

# Configuration

export interface Options {
  // alias pairs, default: {}
  // {"replace-key": "replace-with"}
  // if value of k-v pair is absolute path, it will be used directly or the path will be resolved with cwd
  alias?: Record<string, string>;
  // should this plugin be skipped
  skip?: boolean;
  // default: process.cwd()
  cwd?: string;
}

You can also use syntax * like @alias/*:

esbuildPluginAliasPath({
  alias: {
    '@alias/*': path.resolve(__dirname, './src/alias'),
  },
});

NOTE: Only files under the alias dir will be resolved, the nested file will be ignored instead.

NOTE: In TypeScript project, compilerOptions.paths in tsconfig.json will be used by ESBuild automatically, so you will need this plugin only when you're going to replace the alias dynamically.

# clean

ESBuild plugin for cleaning up output/assets before building.

npm install esbuild-plugin-clean --save-dev
pnpm install esbuild-plugin-clean --save-dev
yarn add esbuild-plugin-clean --save-dev
import { build } from 'esbuild';
import { clean } from 'esbuild-plugin-clean';

(async () => {
  const res = await build({
    entryPoints: ['./demo.ts'],
    bundle: true,
    outfile: './dist/main.js',
    plugins: [
      clean({
        patterns: ['./dist/*', './dist/assets/*.map.js'],
      }),
    ],
  });
})();

# Configuration

This plugin use del (opens new window) under the hood, so you can easily pass del options to this plugin.

export interface CleanOptions {
  /**
   * file clean patterns (passed to `del`)
   *
   * @default: []
   */
  patterns?: string | string[];
  /**
   * use dry-run mode to see what's going to happen
   *
   * remember to set `verbose: true`
   *

   */
  dryRun?: boolean;
  /**
   * extra options passed to `del`
   *
   * @default {}
   */
  options?: DelOptions;
  /**
   * execute clean sync or async (use `del` or `del.sync` for cleaning up)
   *
   * @default: true
   */
  sync?: boolean;
  /**
   * do cleaning in start / end / both
   * maybe in some strange cases you will need it ? :P
   *
   * @default: "start"
   */
  cleanOn?: 'start' | 'end' | 'both';
  /**
   * enable verbose logging
   *
   * @default false
   */
  verbose?: boolean;
}

# compress

ESBuild plugin for output compression (gzip/brotli).

npm install esbuild-plugin-compress --save-dev
pnpm install esbuild-plugin-compress --save-dev
yarn add esbuild-plugin-compress --save-dev
import { build } from 'esbuild';
import { compress } from 'esbuild-plugin-compress';

(async () => {
  const res = await build({
    entryPoints: ['./demo.ts'],
    bundle: true,
    outfile: './dist/main.js',
    plugins: [
      compress({
        outputDir: 'compressed-dist',
      }),
    ],
  });
})();

# Configuration

export interface CompressOptions {
  // apply gzip compression
  // default: true
  gzip?: boolean;
  // gzip options
  // default: {}
  gzipOptions?: ZlibOptions;
  // apply brotli compression
  // default: true
  brotli?: boolean;
  // brotli options
  // default: {}
  brotliOptions?: BrotliOptions;
  // should remove origin files
  // if no compression is specified, origin files will must be generated
  // default: false
  removeOrigin?: boolean;
  // output dir name, relative to outdir/outfile(path.dirname(outfile))
  // default: null, will generate compressed file at the same level of output file
  outputDir?: string;
}

# copy

ESBuild plugin for assets copy handle.

Since version 1.0.1, option keepStructure is supported to control behavior of copying nested files(in both Option level and AssetPair level).

Since version 1.1.0, option resolveFrom is supported to control base path which is used to caclute the destination of copied file.

npm install esbuild-plugin-copy --save-dev
pnpm install esbuild-plugin-copy --save-dev
yarn add esbuild-plugin-copy --save-dev
import { build } from 'esbuild';
import { copy } from 'esbuild-plugin-copy';

(async () => {
  const res = await build({
    entryPoints: ['./src/main.ts'],
    bundle: true,
    outfile: './dist/main.js',
    plugins: [
      copy({
        // this is equal to process.cwd(), which means we use cwd path as base path to resolve `to` path
        // if not specified, this plugin uses ESBuild.build outdir/outfile options as base path.
        resolveFrom: 'cwd',
        assets: {
          from: ['./assets/*'],
          to: ['./assets', './tmp-assets'],
        },
      }),
    ],
  });
})();

# Preserve file structure

import { copy } from 'esbuild-plugin-copy';
import { build } from 'esbuild';

(async () => {
  const res = await build({
    entryPoints: ['./src/index.ts'],
    bundle: true,
    outfile: './dist/main.js',
    watch: true,
    plugins: [
      copy({
        // Not Recommended!
        // keepStructure: true,
        assets: [
          {
            from: ['./node_modules/tinymce/skins/**/*'],
            to: ['./preserved-structure/skins'],
            keepStructure: true,
          },
        ],
      }),
    ],
  });
})();
  • When you set root option keepStructure: true, it means keep structure for all asset pairs, but if some of your asset pairs use ./path/* which ends with /*, default globby will not expand sub-dircetories like ./path/foo. So it's not recommended to use this in root-level.

  • When you set AssetPair.keepStructure, it means keep structure for current assets pair.

  • The final performance of the above configuration is as follows:

    |-node_modules/tinymce/skins
    |--- content
    |----- dark
    |----- default
    |----- document
    |--- ui
    |----- oxide
    |----- oxide-dark
    
    |- dist/preserved-structure/skins
    |--- content
    |----- dark
    |----- default
    |----- document
    |--- ui
    |----- oxide
    |----- oxide-dark
    

You can also use patterns with extension names like ./path/**/*.js

# File Glob

Note: This plugin doesnot expand directories by default, which means when you're using pattern dir/* or dir/*.* , you will only get the file inside dir/ like dir/index.md. If you want to match the nested files like dir/path/to/index.md, you will need to use pattern like dir/**/*.

If you're using dir/* and there are no files under this directory, you will got an warning:

i No files matched using current glob pattern: ./node_modules/tinymce/skins/*, maybe you need to configure globby by options.globbyOptions?

# Configuration

# decorator

ESBuild plugin to handle TypeScript decorators compilation.

  • Support compilation by tsc / @swc/core.
  • Support typescript/swc config file load.
# install peer dependencies
# install @swc/core if you want to use swc as compiler
npm install typescript @swc/core --save-dev
npm install esbuild-plugin-decorator --save-dev
pnpm install esbuild-plugin-decorator --save-dev
yarn add esbuild-plugin-decorator --save-dev
import { build } from 'esbuild';
import { esbuildPluginDecorator } from 'esbuild-plugin-decorator';

    ],
  });
})();

# Configuration

export interface ESBuildPluginDecoratorOptions {

  // verbose logging
  // log info about plugin skipped / decorators not found / current configuration
  // default: false
  verbose?: boolean;
}

# filesize

ESBuild plugin for displaying output file size info.

npm install esbuild-plugin-filesize --save-dev
pnpm install esbuild-plugin-filesize --save-dev
yarn add esbuild-plugin-filesize --save-dev
import { build } from 'esbuild';
import { esbuildPluginFileSize } from 'esbuild-plugin-filesize';

(async () => {
  const res = await build({
    entryPoints: ['./src/main.ts'],
    bundle: true,
    outfile: './dist/main.js',
    plugins: [esbuildPluginFileSize()],
  });
})();

# Configuration

This plugin use filesize (opens new window) for file size formatting under the hood, so you can easily pass execa options to plugin.

export interface ESBuildPluginFileSizeOption {
  // show terser minified size
  showMinifiedSize?: boolean;
  // show gzipped size
  showGzippedSize?: boolean;
  // show brotli size
  showBrotliSize?: boolean;

  showPluginTitle?: boolean;

  // filesize format option
  // https://www.npmjs.com/package/filesize
  format?: FileSizeFormatOption;
  // display theme
  theme?: 'light' | 'dark';
}

# ignore

ESBuild plugin for require/import ignore.

For more information, see Webpack IgnorePlugin (opens new window).

npm install esbuild-plugin-ignore-module --save-dev
pnpm install esbuild-plugin-ignore-module --save-dev
yarn add esbuild-plugin-ignore-module --save-dev
import { build } from 'esbuild';
import { ignore } from 'esbuild-plugin-ignore-module';

(async () => {
  const res = await build({
    entryPoints: ['./src/main.ts'],
    bundle: true,
    outfile: './dist/main.js',
    plugins: [
      ignore({
        ignore: [
          // ignore module 'chalk' import in shared.ts files
          // file extension is required in RegExp
          {
            resourceRegExp: /chalk$/,
            contextRegExp: /shared.ts$/,
          },
          // ignore module 'readline' from all import statement
          {
            resourceRegExp: /readline$/,
          },
        ],
      }),
    ],
  });
})();

// demo.ts
import { SHARED } from './shared';

console.log(SHARED);

// shared.ts
import chalk from 'chalk';
import ora from 'ora';

ora().start();
export const SHARED = 'SHARED';

NOTE:

  • When there're pairs with same resourceRegExp, like:

    ignore: [
      {
        resourceRegExp: /chalk$/,
        contextRegExp: /shared.ts$/,
      },
      {
        resourceRegExp: /chalk$/,
        contextRegExp: /ora/,
      },
    ],
    

    Only the first resolved(start from entry) module will be ignored, in the example above, only chalk in shared.ts will be ignored. If contextRegExp is not passed, chalk imports in all files will be ignored.

    The reason is that exactly equal resourceRegExp will be processed by shared ESBuild filter (opens new window) handler.

  • Remember to add file extensions in RegExp, because ESBuild plugin importer (opens new window) is an absolute full path.

# Configuration

export interface IgnorePattern {
  // import/require statement to ignore
  resourceRegExp: RegExp;
  // importer of resourceRegExp to ignore
  // example:
  // resourceRegExp: /chalk$/ & contextRegExp: /ora
  // this will ignore chalk import in ora internal files
  // resourceRegExp: /^\.\/locale$/ & contextRegExp: /moment$/
  // this will ignore any './locale' imports in moment internal files
  contextRegExp?: RegExp;
}

export interface ESBuildPluginIgnoreOption {
  // ignore patterns
  ignore?: IgnorePattern | IgnorePattern[];
  // verbose logging when module ignored.
  verbose?: boolean;
}

# markdown-import

ESBuild plugin for markdown import(.md files).

npm install esbuild-plugin-markdown-import --save-dev
pnpm install esbuild-plugin-markdown-import --save-dev
yarn add esbuild-plugin-markdown-import --save-dev
import { build } from 'esbuild';
import { markdown } from 'esbuild-plugin-markdown-import';

(async () => {
  const res = await build({
    entryPoints: ['./src/main.ts'],
    bundle: true,
    outfile: './dist/main.js',
    plugins: [markdown()],
  });
})();

// dmeo.ts
import md from 'hello.md';

console.log(md);

// typing.d.ts
declare module '*.md' {
  // parsed html
  export const html: string;
  // raw .md file content
  export const raw: string;
  // markdown file name (basename)
  export const filename: string;
}

// or
declare module '*.md' {
  const result: {
    raw: string;
    html: string;
    fileName: string;
  };
  export default result;
}

MarkDown content will be parsed to JSON and use ESBuild JSON loader:

{
  "html": "<h1 id='hello'>Hello</h1>\n",
  "raw": "# Hello\r\n",
  "filename": "hello.md"
}

# Configuration

This plugin use marked (opens new window) under the hood, so you can easily pass execa options to plugin.

export interface Options {
  // marked options, will be passed to marked parser
  // default: {}
  markedOptions?: MarkedOptions;
  // use sync/async parser
  // default: true
  sync?: boolean;
  // extra k-v pairs to push to generated json
  // default: {}
  extraJSONReturn?: Record<string, unknown>;
  // transform marked parsed result(html)
  transformParsedResult?: (result: string) => string;
  // tranform markdown file raw before marked parse(plain text)
  transformRawBeforeParse?: (raw: string) => string;
  // tranform markdown file raw after marked parse(plain text)
  transformRawAfterParse?: (raw: string) => string;
}
