Hack require in Webpack compilation

See original GitHub issue

I’m wondering if you ever discovered a way/created a plugin for Webpack to redefine requires for server compilation through Webpack. You suggested here the maybe this could be done through NormalModuleReplacement plugin.

webpack-isomorphic-tools are working great for me if I pre-compile my files with Babel or use babel-register but I’m running into situations, such as on AWS Lambda, that I would prefer to make a server bundle with Webpack, then I don’t have to zip all my client node_modules and upload them to Lambda.

Wondering if there is an easy way to do this?
