Overview

jump to TOC
Transforms lodash function imports into sub-modules imports, which allows for a tree-shaking.
It transforms from:
import { debounce } from 'lodash';
to:
import debounce from 'lodash/debounce';

before the source code is being taken through the typescript compiler.
This way webpack 2 will be able to only include the code that's being actually used.

Installation

  1. Install the package:
$ npm install lodash-ts-webpack-plugin --save-dev

Usage

jump to TOC
In your webpack.config.js add the lodash-ts-webpack-plugin preloader:
// ...
module: {
    rules: [
        {
            test: /\.ts$/,
            loader: 'lodash-ts-webpack-plugin',
            exclude: /node_modules/,
            enforce: 'pre'
        },
        // ...
    ],
    // ...
}
// ...

Now somewhere in your main.ts typescript file add an ES6 import for lodash:
import { debounce } from 'lodash';
// make sure you have this line as well otherwise you're not using the import member
// and the lodash code will not be included in the bundle
console.log(debounce); 

run webpack bundling and check your bundle size.
Update the code to:
import { debounce, zip } from 'lodash';
// make sure you have this lines as well otherwise you're not using the import members
// and the lodash code will not be included in the bundle
console.log(debounce); 
console.log(zip); 

run webpack bundling and check your bundle size.
This time the bundle size should be larger.
