Install bootstrap as a Node.js module using npm.
Alternatively, you may import plugins individually as needed:
Bootstrap is dependent on jQuery and Popper,
these are defined as
peerDependencies, this means that you will have to make sure to add both of them
npm install --save jquery popper.js.
Notice that if you chose to import plugins individually, you must also install exports-loader
Importing Precompiled Sass
To enjoy the full potential of Bootstrap and customize it to your needs, use the source files as a part of your project’s bundling process.
First, create your own
_custom.scss and use it to override the built-in custom variables. Then, use your main sass file to import your custom variables, followed by Bootstrap:

Importing Compiled CSS
Alternatively, you may use Bootstrap’s ready-to-use css by simply adding this line to your project’s entry point:
In this case you may use your existing rule for
css without any special modifications to webpack config except you don’t need
sass-loader just style-loader and css-loader.
