const path = require("path");

const RazorPartialViewsWebpackPlugin = require("razor-partial-views-webpack-plugin");

module.exports = {
  entry: {
    vendor: ["jquery"],
    app: path.join(__dirname, "index.js")
  output: {
    path: path.join(__dirname, "dist"),
    publicPath: "/dist/",
    filename: "[name].[chunkhash].js"
  plugins: [
    new webpack.optimize.CommonsChunkPlugin({
      name: ["vendor", "runtime"]
    new RazorPartialViewsWebpackPlugin({
      // "csharp" (default) or "vb"
      target: "chsharp",
      rules: [
          // regex match asset filename(s)
          // (takes precedence over `name`)
          test: /(app|vendor).*\.js$/
          // match asset by name
          name: "runtime",
          // no attributes in `template` are required
          template: {
            // prepend header to view
            header: () => "<!-- a header -->",
            // usings in view
            using: ["System", "System.Web"],
            // view's model
            model: "dynamic",
            // append footer to view
            footer: () => `@* View generated ${new Date().toISOString()} *@`,
            // if needed, use a custom template
            path: path.join(__dirname, "templates/custom-template.tmpl"),
            // in custom template, placeholder to find & replace with asset
            // (default ##URL##/##SOURCE##)
            replace: /##CONTENT-GOES-HERE##/
          // `output` not required, defaults to:
          // - webpack's output directory
          // - load asset by URL
          // - asset name from chunk name/filename
          output: {
            inline: true,
            async: false,
            defer: false,
            // assign predicable name to generated partial view
            name: (defaultName) => `generated-${defaultName}`
            // output view to custom location
            path: path.join(__dirname, "Views/_GeneratedViews")

Compiling views

When running your ASP.NET web site, the generated views will be compiled. Below follows a few tips to keep in mind:

  • If you run into Compiler Error Message: CS0103: The name 'model' does not exist in the current context, this Stack Overflow answer guides you in the right direction.
  • If you're executing razor-partial-views-webpack-plugin on a build server, make sure you've included the generated views' output directory in the artifact.


  • npm install razor-partial-views-webpack-plugin --save-dev
  • yarn add razor-partial-views-webpack-plugin --dev

razor-partial-views-webpack-plugin is an extension of templated-assets-webpack-plugin. For more configuration options and detailed control, use templated-assets-webpack-plugin.


Included in the plugin repository is an example webpack setup where various rules are used. By executing npm run example, partial views are created e.g. for inlining CSS and webpack's runtime.
