#StackBounty: #javascript #angularjs #webpack #angular-ui-router Webpack 2 and Angular 1: exporting and import modules

Bounty: 50

Hope to get some clarification on why the following doesn’t work as expected, hopefully, it’s something easy I may have overlooked. Without Webpack the current implementation works as expected.

Ideally, would like to keep current implementation, I feel registering the component/controller/etc should be done in its own file and just point to the relative module. But if this isn’t best practice I’d also like to see another suggestion.

File root.module is where I define the root module and then in the root.component file I tack on the component to that module.

Current implementation that doesn’t import the module:

//root.component.js
'use strict';

var root = {
  template: require('./root.html')
};

module.exports = angular
  .module('root')
  .component('root', root);
'use strict';

//root.module.js
module.exports = angular
    .module('root', [
        require('./common').name,
        require('./components').name
    ]);

If I do the following works and loads module as expected:

//root.component.js
'use strict';

var root = {
  template: require('./root.html')
};
module.exports = root;

//root.module.js
'use strict';

module.exports = angular
  .module('root', [
    require('./common').name,
    require('./components').name
  ])
  .component('root', require('./root.component'));
