Prevent Minimizing/Optimizing Webpack Folder


Level 2



I am trying to exclude the dependencies folder in ui.frontend from being minimized/optimized via Webpack, but I am unable to, I updated this line to this, but with no effect.

minimizer: [
new TerserPlugin({
exclude: /src\/main\/webpack\/dependencies/,

Use case, is that whatever added to dependencies should not be minimized as it causes issues with method when used elsewhere.

Does anyone have a solution to exclude a path of JS files from being minimized/optimized/compiled by webpack?

Hi arunpatidar,


I actually tried all that before creating this topic.

Is there any straightforward way to only exclude one folder from being minimized.


BTW, to my understanding AEM Clientlib JS Config file, does not actually do any optimization.
