Combine assets with Laravel Mix

Last Updated at : December 3, 2017 By - Usama Muneer | 1690

    What’s Laravel Mix?

    Laravel Mix is a simple API built around Webpack to facilitate compiling of assets using several CSS and JS pre-processors.

    By default, your Laravel project’s webpack.mix.js contains the following code.

    mix.js('resources/assets/js/app.js', 'public/js')
       .sass('resources/assets/sass/app.scss', 'public/css');
    

    What if you want to chain your included files along with that?

    Well there’s a simple solution to this using mix.combine method.

    For CSS files

    mix.combine([
        'resources/assets/css/styles.min.js',
        'resources/assets/css/main.min.js',
        'resources/assets/css/responsive.min.js',
    ], 'public/css/app.js');
    
    

    For JS files

    mix.combine([
        'resources/assets/js/libs/jquery-3.2.1.min.js',
        'resources/assets/js/libs/sweet_alert.min.js',
        'resources/assets/js/libs/main.js',
        'resources/assets/js/libs/functions.js'
    ], 'public/js/all.js');
    
    
    

    Well that’s it. Give it a try and see if that works out for you.
