Webpack

SVGR can be used as a webpack loader, this way you can import your SVG directly as a React Component.

Install

npm install @svgr/webpack --save-dev
# or use yarn
yarn add @svgr/webpack --dev

Usage

In your webpack.config.js:

{
test: /\.svg$/,
use: ['@svgr/webpack'],
}

In your code:

import Star from './star.svg'
const App = () => (
<div>
<Star />
</div>
)

Passing options

{
test: /\.svg$/,
use: [
{
loader: '@svgr/webpack',
options: {
native: true,
},
},
],
}

Using with url-loader or file-loader

It is possible to use it with url-loader or file-loader.

In your webpack.config.js:

{
test: /\.svg$/,
use: ['@svgr/webpack', 'url-loader'],
}

In your code:

import starUrl, { ReactComponent as Star } from './star.svg'
const App = () => (
<div>
<img src={starUrl} alt="star" />
<Star />
</div>
)

The named export defaults to ReactComponent, but can be customized with the namedExport option.

Please note that by default, @svgr/webpack will try to export the React Component via default export if there is no other loader handling svg files with default export. When there is already any other loader using default export for svg files, @svgr/webpack will always export the React component via named export.

If you prefer named export in any case, you may set the exportType option to named.

Use your own Babel configuration

By default, @svgr/webpack includes a babel-loader with an optimized configuration. In some case you may want to apply a custom one (if you are using Preact for an example). You can turn off Babel transformation by specifying babel: false in options.

// Example using preact
{
test: /\.svg$/,
use: [
{
loader: 'babel-loader',
options: {
presets: ['preact', 'env'],
},
},
{
loader: '@svgr/webpack',
options: { babel: false },
}
],
}

Handle SVG in CSS, Sass or Less

It is possible to detect the module that requires your SVG using Rule.issuer in Webpack 5. Using it you can specify two different configurations for JavaScript and the rest of your files.

;[
{
test: /\.svg(\?v=\d+\.\d+\.\d+)?$/,
issuer: /\.[jt]sx?$/,
use: ['babel-loader', '@svgr/webpack', 'url-loader'],
},
{
test: /\.svg(\?v=\d+\.\d+\.\d+)?$/,
loader: 'url-loader',
},
]

Rule.issuer in Webpack 4 has additional conditions which are not available in Webpack 5.
