Webpack offers the necessary functionality to make any module available as a variable within every other module required by webpack.

If you're working with a particular plugin or library that depends upon a global variable - jQuery being the most common example - mix.autoload() may prove useful to you.

Basic Usage

Consider the following example:

    jquery: ['$', 'window.jQuery']

This snippet declares that every time webpack encounters the $ or window.jQuery variables, it should swap them out with var $ = require('jquery').
