Setting up storybook alias involves configuring webpack in your project.


Here are the steps to set up a storybook alias:

  1. Create a webpack.config.js file in your .storybook directory. If you don't have one, create a new file.
  2. Inside the webpack.config.js file, add the following code:
1
2
3
4
5
6
7
8
9
const path = require('path');

module.exports = ({ config }) => {
  config.resolve.alias = {
    '@src': path.resolve(__dirname, '../src'), // replace '@src' with the alias you want to use
  }

  return config;
};


  1. Replace '@src' with the alias you want to use. This alias will now point to the specified directory (in this case, the src directory).
  2. Save the webpack.config.js file.
  3. Restart storybook to apply the changes.


Now you can use the alias in your storybook stories or any other file by importing the modules like this:

1
import Button from '@src/components/Button'; // replace '@src' with the alias you specified


That's it! You have successfully set up a storybook alias.
