I’ve been doing some refactoring of a React project and inevitably some of the components will no longer be required. Having been used to Java IDEs highlighting these issues for me, I wasn’t sure how to go about automating the process of finding unused files.

There are a couple of webpack plugins available for doing just this:

The first gave me a list of all files in the project, which isn’t so helpful. I imagine all I needed to do was configure an entry point for it, but a quick switch to unused-webpack-plugin gave me what I needed.
