Share Custom labels between Lightning Web Components

We know how to use custom label in lightning web components. What about if you have large list of labels and you want to to use in multiple LWC components? In this post we will talk about best practice to import bulk custom label in LWC and how to create utility class to import same set of label in multiple Lightning web components.

You can create a utility component that imports all the labels and then exposes them bundled together in one object via a method. Then your main component will have a cleaner list of imports.

Step 1) Create Utility Class.

Create a Lightning web component that contains only a single Js file. Like below structure


Lets create one common label Utility component.

import header from '@salesforce/label/c.Header';
import title from '@salesforce/label/c.title';

const label = {
    header: header,
    title: title

export {label};
  • The module should only have a JS file & Metadata file in it, otherwise it will not work.
  • Just like with any Lightning web component, the folder name and the filename must be identical
  • Imports all the labels and then exposes them bundled together with export.

Step 2) How to use shared label Utility

Create new Lightning web component and import Js file with import statement like below

import { label  } from 'c/labelUtility';

Let see the full code.

import { LightningElement,track } from 'lwc';
import { label  } from 'c/labelUtility';
export default class CustomLabelDemo extends LightningElement {
    @track myLabel=label;
  • Import JS file with import

    <lightning-card  title={myLabel.title} variant="narrow" icon-name="standard:opportunity">
