Webpack does not have built-in support for tracking changes to HTML files. However, you can use plugins like html-webpack-plugin or file-loader to help track changes to HTML files.


One approach is to use the html-webpack-plugin. This plugin generates an HTML file for your application and automatically injects script tags for your webpack bundles. By using this plugin, webpack will automatically regenerate the HTML file whenever there are changes to your webpack bundles.


Another approach is to use file-loader to track changes to HTML files. This plugin can be used to copy HTML files to your output directory and automatically reload the browser when these files change. This can be helpful for tracking changes to static HTML files that are not generated by webpack.


Overall, while webpack may not have native support for tracking changes to HTML files, there are plugins and tools available that can help you achieve this functionality.
