Do you want to request a feature or report a bug?
What is the current behavior?
Webpack prioritizes the
browser field in a package.json, over the
module field (if both are passed)
If the current behavior is a bug, please provide the steps to reproduce.
Created two gists, a module and a consumer. They are available here:
- module: https://gist.github.com/jshcrowthe/acea97f8b18e81c0a797137b8a38f1e4
- consumer: https://gist.github.com/jshcrowthe/64ec07274e4ac966b3e116078c586dfa
git clone https://gist.github.com/jshcrowthe/64ec07274e4ac966b3e116078c586dfa
- Open browser and navigate to webpack-dev-server URL
- Observe console logs, should look something like the following:
What is the expected behavior?
Webpack should prioritize the
pkg.module field over
pkg.browser. Browserify also relies on the
pkg.browser but does not have support for ES Modules. Seeing as webpack is able to more intelligently parse the ES Module bundles, it should prioritize that bundle if available.
NOTE: I am aware that you can change the
resolve.mainFields to modify this however you’d like. I’m suggesting that the default behavior should be changed
If this is a feature request, what is motivation or use case for changing the behavior?
Please mention other relevant information such as the browser version, Node.js version, webpack version and Operating System.
