  1. Install the required webpack loaders using npm or yarn. For example, if you want to use the css-loader and style-loader, you can install them using the following command:
1
npm install --save-dev css-loader style-loader


  1. Create a vite.config.js file in the root of your project if it doesn't already exist. This file will be used to configure Vite and specify the webpack loaders to use.
  2. In the vite.config.js file, import the required webpack loaders at the top of the file:
1
2
3
4

6
const { defineConfig } = require('vite')
const { createVuePlugin } = require('vite-plugin-vue2')

module.exports = defineConfig({
  plugins: [createVuePlugin()],
})


  1. Configure the webpack loaders in the build configuration of the vite.config.js file. For example, to configure the css-loader and style-loader for handling CSS files, add the following code to the build configuration:
 1

import vue from '@vitejs/plugin-vue'

module.exports = {
  plugins: [vue()],
  build: {
    rollupOptions: {
      plugins: [
        vue({
          css: {
            loaderOptions: {
              // pass options to the css pre-processor plugin
              scss: {
                additionalData: '$color:red;'
              }
            }
          }
        })
      ]
    }
  }
}


  1. Save the vite.config.js file and restart your Vite development server. The webpack loaders should now be used to process the specified file types in your project.


Note: Vite uses its own built-in server and build tool, but it also provides compatibility with webpack loaders to handle different types of files. By configuring webpack loaders in the vite.config.js file, you can extend Vite's capabilities and customize the build process for your project.
