package.json overrides

Using json-merger's syntax you have powerful ways to customize configs without JavaScript directly in your package.json files. There can be some really exotic cases tho. This is a place to collect some of these solutions.

All samples should be placed inside { "mhy": { HERE } } in your package.json file.

Extend .npmignore with custom file names

"npmignore": {
"root": {
"$concat": [
"/test",
"/ci.sh",
"/.gitbook"
]
}
}

babel: Deep customization

  1. Change preset-env to produce commonjs modules

  2. Add module.exports statements to each module for default exports (from Babel v7 it is not being added anymore by default)

  3. Remove regenerator-plugin, it doesn't needed in node.

"babel": {
"production": {
"presets": [
{
"$match": {
"query": "$[?(@[0].includes('preset-env'))]",
"value": [
{
"$match": {
"index": 1,
"value": {
"modules": "commonjs",
"targets": {
"node": true,
"browsers": false,
"esmodules": true
}
}
}
}
]
}
}
],
"plugins": [
{
"$prepend": {
"$expression": "$params.require.resolve('babel-plugin-add-module-exports')"
}
},
{
"$match": {
"query": "$[?(@.includes('regenerator'))]",
"value": {
"$remove": true
}
}
}
]
}
}

Webpack: Some customization

  1. Generate index.php file instead of index.html (in this case html-webpack-plugin is the first in the plugins array).

  2. Change regex for ignored modules from watch. This exact example is useful when working with locally linked npm modules and you want to recompile on it's changes also.

"webpack": {
"production": {
"plugins": [{
"$expression": "Object.assign($targetProperty.options, {filename : 'index.php'})"
}]
},
"development": {
"watchOptions": {
"ignored": [
"node_modules.(?!(my-module-.*)).*"
]
}
}
}

UI: Remove tsc from the UI Ecosystem

The default ecosystem has the tsc process included, but without using TypeScript it's unnecessary. This is what mhy uses now, even tho a query to the string tsc would be more accurate :)

"mhy": {
"root": {
"ecosystem": [
{
"$match": {
"index": 1,
"value": {
"$remove": true
}
}
}
]
}
}

Jest: Load extra environment setup file

"jest": {
"development": {
"setupFilesAfterEnv": {
"$concat": [
"./test-setup.js"
]
}
}
}
