Feature request: Async configuration via webpack.config.js
Please tell us about your environment:
Linux (OS independent problem)
Configuration in webpack.config.js must define an object as module.exports.
Configuration in webpack.config.js should also support async resolving of module.exports (e.g. by assigning a promise, future and/or callback to module.exports).
What is the motivation / use case for changing the behavior?
I stepped upon the same problem as described in defineplugin-from-async.
While there is a work-around (by running webpack through the node API, see link above), my feeling is that allowing an async configuration webpack would simplify more advanced use-cases.
