@storybook/addon-styling-webpack

Get started in Storybook 7 faster with popular styling tools.

✨ Features

  • 🤖 Zero-config for popular tools through codemods.
  • 🧩 Configuration templates for popular tools
  • ⚡️ Options for CSS modules, PostCSS, Sass, Less, and Vanilla-extract

🏁 Getting

🤖 Automatic configuration

To get started, install the package using the Storybook CLI:

pnpm:

pnpm dlx storybook@latest add @storybook/addon-styling-webpack

yarn:

yarn dlx storybook@latest add @storybook/addon-styling-webpack

npm:

npx storybook@latest add @storybook/addon-styling-webpack

What does this do? Under the hood, this installs the package in your project and adds the addon to your main.js file. After that, it will run npx @storybook/auto-config styling. This is a codemod package that will attempt to detect the styling tools in your project and configure your storybook accordingly.

If the codemod fails, please try running npx @storybook/auto-config styling manually. If that fails, please file an issue in the auto-config repo.

🛠️ Manual configuration

@storybook/addon-styling-webpack takes Webpack module rules for your styling tools and replaces the existing rules in Storybook's Webpack config. This avoids duplicating rules that will break your Storybook build.

{
  name: '@storybook/addon-styling-webpack',
  options: {
    rules: [
      // Replaces existing CSS rules with given rule
      {
        test: /\.css$/,
        use: [
          'style-loader',
          'css-loader',
        ],
      }
    ]
  }
}

It can also take Webpack plugins to add to the Storybook config.

{
  name: '@storybook/addon-styling-webpack',
  options: {
    plugins: [
      new MiniCssExtractPlugin(),
    ]
  }
}

🧩 Popular Configurations

Below are a few popular configurations for common styling tools to get you started. More complex configurations are possible by combining the different rules below.

PostCSS

// Often used for tailwind
{
  name: '@storybook/addon-styling-webpack',
  options: {
    rules: [
      // Replaces existing CSS rules to support PostCSS
      {
        test: /\.css$/,
        use: [
          'style-loader',
          {
            loader: 'css-loader',
            options: { importLoaders: 1 }
          },
          {
            // Gets options from `postcss.config.js` in your project root
            loader: 'postcss-loader',
            options: { implementation: require.resolve('postcss') }
          }
        ],
      }
    ]
  }
}

You can also take a look at this example project that uses PostCSS for Tailwind with Storybook:

CSS Modules

{
  name: '@storybook/addon-styling-webpack',
  options: {
    rules: [
      // Replaces existing CSS rules to support CSS Modules
      {
        test: /\.css$/,
        use: [
          'style-loader',
          {
            loader: 'css-loader',
            options: {
              modules: {
                auto: true,
                localIdentName: '[name]__[local]--[hash:base64:5]',
              },
            },
          }
        ],
      }
    ]
  }
}

Sass

{
  name: '@storybook/addon-styling-webpack',
  options: {
    rules: [
      // Replaces any existing Sass rules with given rules
      {
        test: /\.s[ac]ss$/i,
        use: [
          "style-loader",
          "css-loader",
          {
            loader: "sass-loader",
            options: { implementation: require.resolve("sass") }
          },
        ],
      },
    ]
  }
}

Less

{
  name: '@storybook/addon-styling-webpack',
  options: {
    rules: [
      // Replaces any existing Sass rules with given rules
      {
        test: /\.less$/i,
        use: [
          "style-loader",
          "css-loader",
          {
            loader: "less-loader",
            options: { implementation: require.resolve("less") }
          },
        ],
      },
    ]
  }
}

Vanilla-extract

{
  name: '@storybook/addon-styling-webpack',
  options: {
    plugins: [
      new VanillaExtractPlugin(),
      new MiniCssExtractPlugin(),
    ],
    rules: [
      {
        test: /\.css$/,
        sideEffects: true,
        use: [
          require.resolve("style-loader"),
          {
              loader: require.resolve("css-loader"),
              options: {},
          },
        ],
        exclude: /\.vanilla\.css$/,
      },
      {
        // Targets only CSS files generated by vanilla-extract
        test: /\.vanilla\.css$/i,
        sideEffects: true,
        use: [
          MiniCssExtractPlugin.loader,
          {
            loader: require.resolve('css-loader'),
            options: {
              // Required as image imports should be handled via JS/TS import statements
              url: false,
            },
          },
        ],
      },
    ]
  }
}

Troubleshooting

This isn't working in my monorepo.

Monorepos are a more advanced setup that may require a bit more configuration. To find out more. Refer to the Storybook FAQs on monorepos.
