Output filename not configured.

Webpack throws this error when there is a typo somewhere, or it could not find the config file.

Check the following things to resolve the issue :

  • webpack.config.js named correctly without any typo (sometimes people forget to add .js extension)
  • webpack.config.js is in the root directory of the project
  • webpack.config.js has no typos
  • Export the JSON object from webpack.config.js
  • In terminal navigate to the directory where webpack.config.js then run the webpack command.

I hope one of those checks resolves your issue. If you would like to see more posts on common errors with webpack, let us know via your comments !
