Readme

Build Status
Webpack Encoding Plugin
Take control over the encoding of emitted webpack assets. This can be useful, if the delivering webserver enforces a specific content-type, so that your js-code is not interpreted as utf-8 by the browser.

Usage

install module
npm install webpack-encoding-plugin
setup webpack config
const EncodingPlugin = require('webpack-encoding-plugin');
module.exports = {
    entry: './entry.js',
    output: {
        path: '../dist',
        filename: 'bundle.js'
    },
    plugins: [new EncodingPlugin({
        encoding: 'iso-8859-1'
    })]
};

Additional options:
test, include, exclude RegExp or array of RegExps to filter processed files (default test is /(\.js|\.css)($|\?)/i)

Encodings

The Plugin uses iconv-lite to handle the encoding. A list of supported encodings can be found here

webpack-dev-server

To use non-utf-8 encoding with webpack-dev-server, you must set the appropriate charset like so:
devServer:  {
   headers: {
      'Access-Control-Allow-Origin': '*',
      'Content-Type': 'application/javascript; charset=windows-1251'
   }
   // ...
}
