We don't change in minify algorithm, just bump node version and set some options by default

@kidkkr
Thank you! I will try

@faligowski
I'm getting started with Webpack, but in the beginning have some troubles. When deleted [script src="...lodash" and push index.html into dist folder where is main.js, I have "Cannot GET /index.html"
I'm learning step by step with tutorial here

faligowski
@faligowski
What exactly should I do?
Alexander Akait
@alexander-akait
put index.html in you root folder
faligowski
@faligowski
Doesn't work. Did everything like in the tutorial
Chris
@ipatch
@faligowski think you forgot to post the link to the tutorial your following, also i'd follow the docs posted on the official webpack site as opposed to following some third party tutorial that more than likely is out of date because things in webpack's world move fast ...really really fast

Question when using webpack and starting / stopping the server for whatever reason, more often then not I'm editing the actual webpack configuration file, and when i stop then start webpack will launch a window / tab in my default browser but will launch a completely new tab as opposed to reusing the existing open tab.

Has anyone developed a solution where if I stop a webpack dev server and have an existing tab that was associated with a running dev server instance that when i startup webpack again it will "intellegently" (and i use that term loosely) check to see if there is a tab open with the domain or socket that was being used and reconnect to the existing tab? it's quite tedious to close, open, shuffle tabs while working with configuration changes that require the dev server to stopped then started.

@alexander-akait
It is impossible to solve
browsers doesn't provide api for these actions
you can create custom script
but it will be platform depended
Chris
@ipatch

i don't "impossible to solve" is the correct answer but I don't work with webpack daily so i'm little rusty on certain things.

are saying there isn't a way to check / query open browser windows / tabs when launching webpack to check the DOM element that's related to hte address bar and see if there is an address that is related to the one that webpack is about to open?

are saying that's impossible?

because if you are, i have a difficult time believing that.
Alexander Akait
@alexander-akait
yes, it is very difficult and os depended
for example chrome on windows and chrome on linux works very difference
difference versions of chrome also work very difference
also some browsers can't give api for these
we can't check what you browsers have tab with url
Chris
@ipatch
sure windows and linux are completely different beasts but doesn't mean that webpack can't have OS specific code, ie. mac, windows, *nix
Alexander Akait
@alexander-akait
you say about communication with other program like browser
it is always os depended
Chris
@ipatch
are saying that querying the tab in a browser is impossible for a certain reason?
or are there no APIs written for such a feature?
Alexander Akait
@alexander-akait
Do you understand how a tab is opened?
Chris
@ipatch
yeah you click the new tab button 😉
Alexander Akait
@alexander-akait
no
it is click for you, but it is not click for other programs
Chris
@ipatch
right webpack is more than likely accessing an API exposed by the browser
no?
Alexander Akait
@alexander-akait
It is running child_process
it is package what open tab, you can find many os depended code
right webpack is more than likely accessing an API exposed by the browser
What? :smile:
Chris
@ipatch
i believe it doesn't me you OS dependent code couldn't be written
Alexander Akait
@alexander-akait
You are not the first to want this behavior and it has not yet been implemented for a number of technical reasons that cannot be solved.
right now
browser doesn't prove api on js :smile:
Chris
@ipatch
looks like sindresorhus uses a series of if statements to check for various OS flavors, i mean there's only 3 major OSes that would require support.
• macOS
• Windows
• *nix Linux
Alexander Akait
@alexander-akait
simple: we can't to ask browser open package in same tab
because browser doesn't have api for this
Chris
@ipatch

like ALL browser, i guess "brower" == "to all major browsers" == [Chrome, Firefox, IE, Opera, etc]

your saying not a single browser provides a feature as the one we're describing?

deAtog
@deAtog
@ipatch I think you are misunderstanding the issue here.. to open a URI or file on Linux, OSX, Windows, etc. most applications just pass the URI or file location to an external program which then determines how to open the given URI or file. The process used is similar to how a file browser opens a file and is equivalent to requesting the same file be opened multiple times.

@deAtog I don't understand the last part about opening same file multiple times?
