How to configure font file output directory from font-awesome-webpack in webpack?

I just installed font-awesome-webpack. I import it using: require("font-awesome-webpack");

My webpack config includes the following in my module loaders array:

{ test: /\.woff(2)?(\?v=[0-9]\.[0-9]\.[0-9])?$/, loader: "url-loader?limit=10000&minetype=application/font-woff" },
{ test: /\.(ttf|eot|svg)(\?v=[0-9]\.[0-9]\.[0-9])?$/, loader: "file-loader" }


Problem is I am getting this error in developer console:

localhost/:1 GET http://localhost/mysite/app/db812d8a70a4e88e888744c1c9a27e89.woff2
localhost/:1 GET http://localhost/mysite/app/a35720c2fed2c7f043bc7e4ffb45e073.woff
localhost/:1 GET http://localhost/mysite/app/a3de2170e4e9df77161ea5d3f31b2668.ttf 404 (Not Found)


The problem is, those files are created at the root (within the mysite directory). How do I configure such that those woffs and ttf are output within the mysite/app directory?

I've recently wanted to use font awesome with webpack, I've installed the npm module fontawesome not font-awesome-webpack

You must install few loaders before :

npm i css-loader file-loader style-loader url-loader

and add use them in your webpack.config.js :

module: {
    loaders: [{
      test: /\.css$/,
      loader: 'style!css?sourceMap'
    }, {
      test: /\.woff(\?v=\d+\.\d+\.\d+)?$/,
      loader: "url?limit=10000&mimetype=application/font-woff"
    }, {
      test: /\.woff2(\?v=\d+\.\d+\.\d+)?$/,
      loader: "url?limit=10000&mimetype=application/font-woff"
    }, {
      test: /\.ttf(\?v=\d+\.\d+\.\d+)?$/,
      loader: "url?limit=10000&mimetype=application/octet-stream"
    }, {
      test: /\.eot(\?v=\d+\.\d+\.\d+)?$/,
      loader: "file"
    }, {
      test: /\.svg(\?v=\d+\.\d+\.\d+)?$/,
      loader: "url?limit=10000&mimetype=image/svg+xml"
    }]
  }

Now if you include in your entry.js :

require('font-awesome/css/font-awesome.css');

You normally be able to use font-awesome in your template :

<i class="fa fa-times"></i>
