To access a JSON static file imported with webpack, you can follow these steps:

  1. Make sure you have a JSON file in your project directory that you want to import.
  2. Import the JSON file in your JavaScript code using the import statement: import data from './data.json';
  3. Now you can access the imported JSON data in your code like any other JavaScript object: console.log(data);


Make sure that you have the necessary webpack configuration to handle JSON files. This can be done by including the json-loader in your webpack configuration file (webpack.config.js):

module: {
  rules: [
    {
      test: /.json$/,
      use: 'json-loader',
      type: 'javascript/auto'
    }
  ]
}


After setting up the json-loader in your webpack configuration, you should be able to import and access the JSON static file in your code using webpack.
