You can replace a string in JavaScript using Webpack by using the StringReplacePlugin. Here's how you can do it:

  1. Install the string-replace-webpack-plugin package by running the following command:
1
npm install string-replace-webpack-plugin --save-dev


  1. Add the StringReplacePlugin to your Webpack configuration file (usually named webpack.config.js):

const StringReplacePlugin = require("string-replace-webpack-plugin");

module.exports = {
  // other webpack configuration settings

  plugins: [
    new StringReplacePlugin()
  ],
  
  module: {
    rules: [
      {
        test: /path-to-your-file.js$/, // specify the file(s) to replace strings in
        use: [
          {
            loader: "string-replace-loader",
            options: {
              search: "string-to-replace",
              replace: "new-string",
            }
          }
        ]
      }
    ]
  }
};


  1. Replace path-to-your-file.js with the path to your JavaScript file, string-to-replace with the string you want to replace, and new-string with the new string you want to replace it with.
  2. Run Webpack to build your project. The StringReplacePlugin will replace the specified string in your JavaScript file during the build process.


That's it! Your string should now be replaced in your JavaScript file using Webpack.
