To use terser with webpack, you can follow these steps:

  1. Install terser and terser-webpack-plugin:
1
npm install terser terser-webpack-plugin --save-dev


  1. Add the TerserWebpackPlugin to your webpack configuration:

const TerserWebpackPlugin = require('terser-webpack-plugin');

module.exports = {
  // Other webpack configuration settings
  
  optimization: {
    minimize: true,
    minimizer: [
      new TerserWebpackPlugin({
        // Terser options
      }),
    ],
  },
};


  1. You can pass options to customize the behavior of terser:

new TerserWebpackPlugin({
  terserOptions: {
    compress: {
      drop_console: true,

  },
}),


  1. Run webpack to build your project. Terser will be used to minify your JavaScript code.
