Node.js Question

Sass loader not working in webpack

I am trying to get *.scss files to be supported in my webpack configuration but I keep getting the following error when I run the webpack build command:

ERROR in ./~/css-loader!./~/sass-loader!./app/styles.scss
Module build failed: TypeError: Cannot read property 'sections' of null

I can't for the life of me figure out why. It's a very basic setup.

I have created a dropbox share with the bare minimum illustrating this:
https://www.dropbox.com/s/quobq29ngr38mhx/webpack.sass.test.zip?dl=0

Unzip this then run:

npm install
webpack


Here is my webpack.config.js file:

var path = require('path')
var webpack = require('webpack')

module.exports = {
devtool: 'eval',
entry: [
'./app'
],
output: {
path: path.join(__dirname, 'dist'),
filename: 'index.js',
publicPath: '/dist/'
},
plugins: [
new webpack.NoErrorsPlugin()
],
resolve: {
extensions: ['', '.js']
},
module: {
loaders: [{
test: /\.scss$/,
loader: 'style-loader!css-loader!sass-loader'
}]
}
}


And the index.js entry file:

require('./styles.scss');

alert('foo bar baz');


And the styles.scss file:

body {
background-color: #000;
}


It appears to follow the recommendations of the sass-loader documentation site, but I can't get it to run.

:(

Information about my environment:

node - 0.12.4
npm - 2.10.1
os - OS X Yosemite

Answer

I have managed to get another workaround working that doesn't involve editing the css-loader libraries within my npm_modules directory (as per the answer by @chriserik).

If you add '?sourceMap' to the sass loader the css loader seems to handle the output.

Here is my updated configuration:

var path = require('path')
var webpack = require('webpack')

module.exports = {
  devtool: 'eval',
  entry: [
    './app'
  ],
  output: {
    path: path.join(__dirname, 'dist'),
    filename: 'index.js',
    publicPath: '/dist/'
  },
  plugins: [
    new webpack.NoErrorsPlugin()
  ],
  resolve: {
    extensions: ['', '.js']
  },
  module: {
    loaders: [{
      test: /\.scss$/,
      loader: 'style!css!sass?sourceMap'
    }]
  }
}

P.S. I even expanded this test to include a compass-mixins include, and this worked too.
