Removed Blaze & jquery, why are they still added to the build?

We’ve replaced Blaze with mwc:layout to render Polymer components and removed the Blaze, BlazeLayout and jQuery packages from meteor but Blaze & jquery are still being loaded to the build. How can we get rid of them?

What’s your package list?

dferber:prerender has a hard dependency on the core templating package

Thanks, that solved it! Just curious, how did you know about that? I’ve looked at a few packages but after a while I gave up finding the dependency. Is there a way to find the dependencies easier than going through package one by one?

Just an educated guess :stuck_out_tongue:

Atmosphere lists up to 10 dependants which helps sometimes but otherwise I don’t think there’s an easier method yet…

“meteor show package:name” might be helpful as well.


@sashko Would be nice to have the inverse: meteor relies-on [package]. After a while of trying I cannot get rid of Blaze!

this command makes it easier to see package dependencies:

for p in `meteor list | grep '^[a-z]' | awk '{sub(/[+*]$/, "", $2); print $1"@"$2 }'`; do echo "$p"; meteor show "$p" | grep -E '^ [a-z]'; echo; done
