@loader is a module that refers to the loader that is loading the module. Any time you need to configure the loader or dynamically import modules, it's best to use @loader rather than the global steal.loader.


The @loader module is the Loader that is loading your code.

In most cases they are the same, but during the build there are multiple loaders; and if using steal-clone to test injected modules.


To use @loader simply import it and use it in the same way you would use steal.loader.

import loader from "@loader";

    map: {
        a: "b"



This works with any syntax supported by Steal.
