To include readline in your webpack project, you can follow these steps:

  1. Install the readline package using npm or yarn:
1
npm install readline


  1. Update your webpack configuration file (usually webpack.config.js) to resolve the readline module by adding the following to the resolve section:
1
2
3
4
5
6
resolve: {
  extensions: ['.js'],
  alias: {
    'readline': require.resolve('readline')
  }
}


  1. Add the NodePolyfillPlugin plugin to your webpack configuration file to polyfill Node.js core modules like readline:
1
2
3
4
5
6
7
8
const NodePolyfillPlugin = require("node-polyfill-webpack-plugin")

module.exports = {
  // other configurations
  plugins: [
    new NodePolyfillPlugin()
  ]
}


  1. Import readline in your code and use it as needed:
1
const readline = require('readline');


By following these steps, you should be able to include readline in your webpack project successfully.
