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
# or use yarn
yarn add @svgr/webpack

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>
)

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. Using it you can specify two different configurations for JavaScript and the rest of your files.

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