Help with inline import json-schema-ref-loader

See original GitHub issue


I have an issue when importing json using json-schema-ref-loader, this is most likely NOT json-schema-ref-loader issue but will appreciate if anyone can see what I’m missing…

So my import is like import MySchema from '@cloudflare/json-schema-ref-loader!./my-schema.json';

And I get the following error when running webpack:

Module parse failed: Unexpected token m in JSON at position 0 while parsing near 'module.exports ...

I assumed this is because there is some other loader who tries to parse the json after json-schema-ref-loader loaded it, so I prefixed the loader with !! which should disable all configured loaders: import MySchema from '!!@cloudflare/json-schema-ref-loader!./my-schema.json'; But still no luck 😦

If I change the file extension from json -> jjj the following works: import MySchema from '@cloudflare/json-schema-ref-loader!./my-schema.jjj';

Any ideas how I can resolve this? Thx!

Oh, I see- it’s outputting JavaScript which is now a problem. One day it will be possible to do things in JS without stacking a bajillion constantly changing frameworks on top of each other. Maybe.

OK, so to close this issue, this is what I ended up with:

  1. I removed the “inline loader” style when importing the schema
  2. Renamed all schema files to end with .schema.json
  3. Defined the following module rule in my webpack config:
  test: /\.schema\.json$/,
  loader: '@cloudflare/json-schema-ref-loader',
  type: 'javascript/auto',
  exclude: /node_modules/

This way json-schema-ref-loader will only handle my schema files and webpack will keep handling regular json files…

Thx 😃
