Online Preview

You can have a preview the analysing report of the analyser itself

You can genreate your own report and host it statically by running the following command

npx windicss-analysis --html dist


It does not detect my files

You will need to configure the extract.include options in windi.config.js instead of your framework's configurations file so it can be understood by the analyzer so as other integrations support. For example:

// windi.config.js
import { defineConfig } from 'windicss/helpers'
import colors from 'windicss/colors'

export default defineConfig({
  extract: {
    include: [

Can I use the report for other tools?

Yes. You can get the raw json file via the CLI

npx windicss-analysis --json report.json

and process it as you need.

You can also have type support for it via:

import type { AnalysisReport } from 'windicss-analysis'
import rawReport from './report.json'

const report = rawReport as AnalysisReport

Programmatic Use?

Yes. Just like a normal Node package:

import { startServer } from 'windicss-analysis'

startServer({ /* ... */ })
