Unbundle your JavaScript with Source Maps in Chrome DevTools

Unbundle your JavaScript with Source Maps in Chrome DevTools

Most of today’s websites use optimized, compiled, minified and obfuscated javascript and CSS. Examining this stuff here has some severely limited utility, which is why when developing we rely on sourcemaps. We’ll set up a webpack workflow that uses sourcemaps to show you how they can help your debugging!

What's the purpose of # symbol before 'eval-source-map'?

There was some change in webpack recently that made it necessary, but I'm not 100% clear on the details. Webpack for me is usually a matter of getting it to work once and then forgetting about it :P

But maybe it'd be worth looking into that, I'm curious too.
