How do you work with preprocessors using vue loader

Here's how to work with preprocessors using vue-loader:

1. Install Necessary Loaders:

  • Install the loaders for the preprocessors you want to use, such as:

  • sass-loader for Sass/SCSS

  • less-loader for Less

  • stylus-loader for Stylus

2. Configure Vue Loader Rules:

  • In your Webpack configuration, add rules for handling preprocessor code within .vue files:


module.exports = {
  // ... other Webpack configuration
  module: {
    rules: [
        test: /\.vue$/,
        loader: 'vue-loader',
        options: {
          loaders: {
            // Example for Sass:
            'scss': [
            // Adjust for other preprocessors

Key Points:

  • Language Blocks: Use the lang attribute in <style> blocks to specify the preprocessor language:

Code snippet

<style lang="scss">
  /* Sass code here */

  • vue-style-loader: Injects CSS into the DOM for immediate application.

  • css-loader: Resolves CSS imports and URLs, handles modules (if using).

  • Preprocessor-specific loader: Processes the preprocessor code (e.g., sass-loader for Sass).

Additional Considerations:

  • Global Styles: For global styles, define a separate CSS file with the preprocessor language and apply it in your main JavaScript file.

  • Webpack Configuration: Adjust Webpack configuration for other asset types (e.g., images, fonts).

  • Vue CLI: If using Vue CLI, it often handles preprocessor configuration automatically.

Example (Sass):

  1. Install loaders: npm install --save-dev sass-loader css-loader

  2. Configure Webpack (as shown above).

  3. Use Sass in .vue files:

Code snippet

<style lang="scss">
  $primary-color: #333;

  h1 {
    color: $primary-color;

Remember: Consult the documentation for specific preprocessors and loaders for detailed configuration options and features.
