This plugin exposes functions which may be used within other WordPress themes or plugins to aid in detecting and loading assets generated by Webpack, including those served from local webpack-dev-server instances.

Build Status


This library is designed to work in conjunction with a Webpack configuration (such as those created with the presets in @humanmade/webpack-helpers) which generate an asset manifest file. This manifest associates asset bundle names with either URIs pointing to asset bundles on a running DevServer instance, or else local file paths on disk.

Asset_Loader provides a set of methods for reading in this manifest file and registering a specific resource within it to load within your WordPress website. The primary public interface provided by this plugin is a pair of methods, Asset_Loader\register_asset() and Asset_Loader\enqueue_asset(). To register a manifest asset call one of these methods inside actions like wp_enqueue_scripts or enqueue_block_editor_assets, in the same manner you would have called the standard WordPress wp_register_script or wp_enqueue_style functions.

namespace My_Theme\Scripts;

use Asset_Loader;

add_action( 'enqueue_block_editor_assets', __NAMESPACE__ . '\\enqueue_block_editor_assets' );

 * Enqueue the JS and CSS for blocks in the editor.
 * @return void
function enqueue_block_editor_assets() {
    // In a plugin, this would be `plugin_dir_path( __FILE__ )` or similar.
    get_stylesheet_directory() . '/build/asset-manifest.json',
    // The handle of a resource within the manifest. For static file fallbacks,
    // this should also match the filename on disk of a build production asset.
      'handle'       => 'optional-custom-script-handle',
      'dependencies' => [ 'wp-element', 'wp-editor' ],

    // In a plugin, this would be `plugin_dir_path( __FILE__ )` or similar.
    get_stylesheet_directory() . '/build/asset-manifest.json',
    // Enqueue CSS for the editor.
      'handle'       => 'custom-style-handle',
      'dependencies' => [ 'some-style-dependency' ],
