To get running @font-face with webpack, you can follow the steps below:

  1. Install the required dependencies: npm install style-loader css-loader file-loader --save-dev This will install the necessary loaders to handle font files in webpack.
  2. Configure webpack to handle font files: In your webpack configuration file (e.g., webpack.config.js), add the following rules to handle font files: module: { rules: [ { test: /.(woff(2)?|ttf|eot|svg)(?v=d+.d+.d+)?$/, use: [ { loader: 'file-loader', options: { name: '[name].[ext]', outputPath: 'fonts/' } } ] } ] } This configuration tells webpack to use the file-loader to handle font files and output them to the fonts/ directory.
  3. Import the font file in your CSS/SCSS file: In your CSS/SCSS file (e.g., styles.css), you can import the font file using @font-face: @font-face { font-family: 'MyFont'; src: url('./path/to/font.woff2') format('woff2'), url('./path/to/font.woff') format('woff'); /* Include other font properties if needed */ } Replace ./path/to/font.woff2 and ./path/to/font.woff with the actual paths to your font files.
  4. Use the imported font in your styles: You can now use the imported font in your styles by specifying the font-family property: body { font-family: 'MyFont', sans-serif; } This will apply the font to the body element.
  5. Run webpack to build your project: Run webpack to build your project by executing the build command (e.g., npm run build or npx webpack). This will compile your CSS/SCSS file and include the font files in the output build.


Now, when you run your project, the font should be applied to the specified elements.
