canjs part is very pretty but the main purpose is to actually just show how to build canjs project with webpack so it should be sufficient .. actual blogpost coming next :)
@/all When building a component with CanJS ... is there a way to entirely replace the custom TAG in your dom with the contents of its template?
@hurgleburgler You could call replaceWith on the inserted event(I’m not sure how to get a handle to the template offhand), however this sounds like something you could use can.view.attr() for. If you have a use case, it would provide more insight
@hurgleburgler could you use a partial?
is a component necessary
@rasjani awesome. But if I might ask, why are you using webpack instead of StealJS?
@justinbmeyer I'm using systemjs and traceur (switching to babel) directly. I saw your talk on stealjs at the palo alto meet up. Since then, I inquired about the state of stealjs and was told it wasn't ready for production yet. Is steal ready for primetime? Is there a blog post or something that speaks to the advantages of steal over using systemjs directly?
