Disable combining of all code into app.js for browser in dev


#1

I regularly modify client-side code in the browser for debugging purposes. This has become a pain since Meteor started combining all code into app.js:

  • If you make a change, it takes Chrome about 10 seconds to save it since app.js is so big.

  • Since you have to make changes in app.js and Chrome doesn’t have an easy way to jump from the source-mapped code to app.js, I have to resort to searching within app.js for the code I want.

A few versions back, Meteor would serve individual files in development mode. How can I stop Meteor from bundling everything into a single file? Removing the package “standard-minifiers-js” doesn’t work.
