To provide a custom path for webpack configuration, you can use the --config flag when running the webpack command. This flag allows you to specify the path to the webpack configuration file.


For example, if you have a webpack configuration file named custom.config.js in your project root, you can run webpack with this custom configuration file using the following command:

1
webpack --config custom.config.js


This will instruct webpack to use the configuration specified in the custom.config.js file instead of the default webpack.config.js file.


Alternatively, you can also specify the path to the webpack configuration file directly in your package.json file under the scripts section. For example:

1
2
3
"scripts": {
  "build": "webpack --config custom.config.js"
}


This way, you can run the webpack build by running npm run build, and webpack will use the custom configuration file specified in custom.config.js.
