To copy a static folder to both "dev" and "build" directories in Vite, you can use the copy plugin provided by Vite. Here's how you can achieve this:

  1. Install the vite-plugin-copy package:
1
npm install vite-plugin-copy --save-dev


  1. Update your Vite configuration file (e.g., vite.config.js) to include the copy plugin and specify the folders you want to copy:

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

export default defineConfig({
  plugins: [
    copy({
      targets: [
        { src: 'static', dest: 'dev' }, // copy the static folder to the dev directory
        { src: 'static', dest: 'build' }, // copy the static folder to the build directory
      ],
      verbose: true, // optional, for verbose output
    }),
  ],
});


  1. Now, when you run Vite, the copy plugin will automatically copy the contents of the static folder to both the "dev" and "build" directories.


By following these steps, you can easily copy a static folder to both "dev" and "build" directories in Vite using the copy plugin.
