CSS file paths in Vite 3 manifest broken on Windows

See original GitHub issue
  • Laravel Vite Plugin Version: 0.5.0
  • Laravel Version: 9.21.3
  • Node Version: 16.13.2
  • NPM Version: 8.1.2
  • Host operating system: Windows
  • Web Browser & Version: Chrome - Version 103.0.5060.134 (Official Build) (64-bit)
  • Running in Sail / Docker: No


import { defineConfig } from 'vite';
import laravel from 'laravel-vite-plugin';

export default defineConfig({
    plugins: [
            input: [
            refresh: true,
@vite(['resources/css/app.css', 'resources/js/app.js'])

After running this command:

npm run build

Getting this error:

Unable to locate file in Vite manifest: resources/css/app.css.

Steps To Reproduce:

I have done some research on it.

there is an issue in the manifest.json file.

  "resources/js/app.js": {
    "file": "assets/app.8fe7c9ab.js",
    "src": "resources/js/app.js",
    "isEntry": true
  "resources/css\\app.css": {
    "file": "assets/app.8794147c.css",
    "src": "resources/css\\app.css"


and in the Vite.php this manifest key is not matching.


that’s why js files working fine and css files having issues.

please fix this, thanks.
