Nicer css module generated names

See original GitHub issue

You may not even realize this, but your current config supports css modules, it just doesn’t use them by default – i.e. you can use :local in CSS files and it will generate class names, it just doesn’t make all class selectors local by default.

I’m totally fine with global being the default scope for now (much less confusing for beginners) and adding the :local pseudo-class where I need it, but it would be nice if more human-readable classes were generated. Use something like:


as the loader config in webpack.

I regret bringing this to your attention.

I don’t think we want to support this. I would actually like to turn this feature off.

The reason is we might want to migrate away from webpack in the future. We’d need to make our CSS files are as vanilla CSS as possible (aside from minor stuff like relative dependency paths).

I would accept a PR that forbids extra features if possible.
