I am using AEM 6.5 ui.frontend webpack. Here if I compile scss to css it will complie in clientlibs-site/site.css. But I want component scss files to compile at the component level, I don't one one css file for all the components. Is this possible in Webpack? If yes, then how I can configure this.

Yes, it is possible to create a separate component-specific clientlib folder using ui.frontend module.

 

Create separate <component-name>clientlib.config.js

and set the clientlib path as follows

const CLIENTLIB_DIR = path.join(
__dirname,
'..',
'ui.apps',
'src',
'main',
'content',
'jcr_root',
'apps',
'aem-project',
'components',
'component-name'
'clientlibs'
);

also, you need o update the respective module's configuration in the as same as clientlib.config.js file.

Hi @Suraj_Kamdi 

 

But this solution will work only for one or few components. If I have more than 15 components then I have to manually write the config. Is this any way it will automatically pick the sass component files and compile in component client-libs.
