Understanding "htmlWebpackPlugin.options.title"

As a web developer, I have come across various HTML tags, attributes and properties that make my job a lot easier. One such property is "htmlWebpackPlugin.options.title".

What is htmlWebpackPlugin.options.title?

"htmlWebpackPlugin.options.title" is a property that is used in webpack configuration. It is a way of inserting the title of the webpage in the HTML document without hard-coding it in the HTML file.

How does it work?

In order to understand how htmlWebpackPlugin.options.title works, let's take an example. Suppose I am building a website with multiple pages and I want a different title for each page. Instead of hard-coding the title in each HTML file, I can use the "htmlWebpackPlugin.options.title" property in my webpack configuration file.

Here's an example of how to use it:

const HtmlWebpackPlugin = require('html-webpack-plugin');

module.exports = {
  // other configurations
  plugins: [
    new HtmlWebpackPlugin({
      title: 'Home Page',
      filename: 'index.html',
      template: 'src/index.html'
    new HtmlWebpackPlugin({
      title: 'About Us',
      filename: 'about.html',
      template: 'src/about.html'

In the above example, I have used the "HtmlWebpackPlugin" plugin to generate HTML files. I have set the "title" property for each HTML file. When webpack generates the HTML file, it will automatically insert the title in the head section of the HTML file.

Alternative ways to set title

Another way to set the title of the webpage is by using the "document.title" property in JavaScript. This is useful when you want to dynamically change the title of the webpage based on user actions.

document.title = 'New Page Title';

In the above example, I have used JavaScript to set the title of the webpage to "New Page Title".

In conclusion, htmlWebpackPlugin.options.title is a useful property in webpack configuration that saves time and effort by allowing us to dynamically set the title of the webpage without hard-coding it in HTML files. There are also alternative ways to set the title using JavaScript.
