Thanks, I'm gonna play around with WebPack after having viewed this series.

Been using Gulp most of the time, but especially being able to reference templates indenpendently of the location of the folder in which it resides, is a huge huge win.

Btw, your podcast is great as well, I'm a dedicated listener :)

Hi Lars!

Glad to hear you enjoyed the series. I moved from gulp to webpack in January and it's been amazing. Webpack can be a bit of a beast to get set up initially (something I'm trying to remedy with this series), but once you've got it in place, it's amazingly simple and powerful.

I'm glad you enjoy the podcast!! :D

Hi Kent!

How do you use map-sources with unit testing?
Thanks!

Set devtool when you're in test mode (I recommend eval)

what are the differences between the options available? Is there any place that explains properly those options? The official documentation (https://webpack.github.io/docs/configuration.html) is not easy to understand. Different info I found on the internet, looks like people just chose randomly the options. Some of them simply do not work. I tried some options and the result mapping is completely wrong. The source shown do not match with the correct one.

Thanks

These are the available options. I agree that it's not 100% clear how things work. I recommend that in development you use eval and in production you use source-map :)
