Using CSS Frameworks

Although this may seem like a no brainer, I'd suggest you import your third-party CSS libraries into webpack using the style-loader, which is already setup for you.

Use Case

Say you want to use bootstrap, bulma, or materialize for your application. Go ahead and install your library from npm like you normally would, but instead of attaching the asset to index.ejs we will import the CSS in our JavaScript, specifically in src/renderer/main.js.


Let's install bulma

npm install bulma --save

Then inside src/renderer/main.js let's add this line.

import 'bulma/css/bulma.css'

Alternatively, you can also include bulma from inside a component file.


  @import "~bulma/css/bulma.css";

Now webpack will know to load in bulma for our application and make it available in our production builds.
