In order to break a loop in a webpack hook, you can use the return statement to exit the function or loop early. Here is an example:

 1
 2
 3
 4
 5
 6
 7
 8
 9
10
11
12
13
14
15
16
17
18
19
const webpack = require('webpack');

const MyPlugin = {
  apply(compiler) {
    compiler.hooks.run.tap('MyPlugin', (compiler) => {
      // Loop through something
      for (let i = 0; i < 10; i++) {
        // Check a condition to break the loop
        if (i === 5) {
          // Break the loop
          return;
        }
        console.log(i);
      }
    });
  }
};

module.exports = MyPlugin;


In this example, the loop will iterate through numbers 0 to 9. When i is equal to 5, the loop will be broken using the return statement, and the function will exit early.
