webpack 4 - ts-loader / fork-ts-checker-webpack-plugin betas

The first webpack 4 beta dropped on Friday. Very exciting! Following hot on the heels of those announcements, I've some news to share too. Can you guess what it is?


Yes! The ts-loader beta to work with webpack 4 is available. To get hold of the beta:

Remember to use this in concert with the webpack 4 beta. To see a working example take a look at the "vanilla" example.


There's more! You may like to use the fork-ts-checker-webpack-plugin, (which goes lovely with ts-loader and a biscuit). There is a beta available for that too:

  • When using yarn: yarn add johnnyreilly/fork-ts-checker-webpack-plugin#4.0.0-beta.1 -D
  • When using npm: npm install johnnyreilly/fork-ts-checker-webpack-plugin#4.0.0-beta.1 -D

To see a working example take a look at the "fork-ts-checker" example.


If you would like to track the progress of these betas then I encourage you to take a look at the PRs they were built from. The ts-loader PR can be found here. The fork-ts-checker-webpack-plugin PR can be found here.

These are betas so things may change further; though hopefully not significantly.
