To import an external jQuery library into webpack, you can follow these steps:

  1. Install jQuery as a dependency using npm or yarn: npm install jquery or yarn add jquery
  2. In your JavaScript file where you want to use jQuery, import it at the top: import $ from 'jquery';
  3. Configure webpack to resolve modules using the ProvidePlugin. Add the following code to your webpack.config.js file: const webpack = require('webpack'); module.exports = { // ... plugins: [ new webpack.ProvidePlugin({ $: 'jquery', jQuery: 'jquery' }) ] // ... }; This configuration tells webpack to automatically provide the $ and jQuery variables everywhere in your code, making it unnecessary to import or require jQuery in every file that uses it.
  4. Now you can use jQuery in your JavaScript code as usual: $(document).ready(function() { // Your jQuery code goes here }); Make sure that your JavaScript file is included in the entry point of your webpack configuration, so it will be bundled together with other modules.

That's it! Now you have successfully imported the external jQuery library into webpack.
