To configure and run an external plugin with webpack, you will need to first install the plugin via npm or yarn. Once the plugin is installed, you can add it to your webpack configuration file.

  1. Install the external plugin:
1
npm install <plugin-name> --save-dev


  1. In your webpack configuration file (typically webpack.config.js), require the plugin at the top of the file:
1
const <PluginName> = require('<plugin-name>');


  1. Add the plugin to the plugins array in the webpack configuration:
1
2
3
4
5
6
7
8
module.exports = {
  // other webpack configuration options
  plugins: [
    new <PluginName>({
      // plugin options
    })
  ]
};


  1. Run webpack to build your project with the external plugin:
1
npx webpack


By following these steps, you can configure and run an external plugin with webpack. Make sure to consult the documentation of the specific plugin you are using for any additional configuration options or requirements.
