My webpack config looks like so:

const webpack = require('webpack');
const path = require('path');
var inProduction = (process.env.NODE_ENV === 'production');

const config = {
    entry: './themes/singularity/assets/js/main.js',
    output: {
        path: path.resolve(__dirname, './themes/singularity/assets/dist/js'),
        filename: 'bundle.js'
    module: {
        rules: [
                test: /\.s[ac]ss$/,
                exclude: /node_modules/,
                use: ["sass-loader"]

                test: /\.js$/,
                exclude: /node_modules/,
                loader: "babel-loader"

    plugins: [
        new webpack.ProvidePlugin({
            $: 'jquery',
            jQuery: 'jquery'

/** Minimize JS when in production */
if (inProduction) {
        new webpack.optimize.UglifyJsPlugin()

module.exports = config;

Everything compiles fine but I keep getting JS console errors since framework.js from October can't seem to detect it still:

Uncaught Error: The jQuery library is not loaded. The OctoberCMS framework cannot be initialized.
    at framework.js:9

I know jQuery exists since I can interact with it in my custom JS and thru the JS console. Is jQuery provided by webpack only accessible in Modules instead of all scripts? That might be the issue. If yes, can anyone suggest how to handle this?

The body of my master layout looks like this:


    <!-- Flash Messaging -->
    <div id="flashmessages">{% partial "flash-message" %}</div>    

    <!-- Page Content -->
    <div class="wrapper">
        {% page %}

    <!-- JS BEGINS -->
    <script type="text/javascript" src="{{ 'assets/dist/js/bundle.js'|theme }}"></script>
    {% framework extras %}
    {% scripts %}

What version of jQuery are you loading, and is this happening because your bundle.js file isn't loading until after the framework.js file does due to file weight or the like?


Add this:

window.$ = window.jQuery = require('jquery');

to your script input file
