Remove jQuery autoloader #585

Mix is AMAZEBALLS! Such a simple, yet powerful api. A massive thanks to you Jeffrey for the resource!

I'm trying to use mix for WordPress dev where jQuery is (almost) always loaded in the frontend.

I'd very much like to remove the autoloader for jQuery which is found in webpack.config.js but I can't quite figure out if this is possible to do in webpack.mix.js.

I realize I can just remove the lines below, but I'd ideally like to avoid that if at all possible.

new webpack.ProvidePlugin(Mix.autoload || {
    jQuery: 'jquery',
    $: 'jquery',
    jquery: 'jquery'

laravel-mix v. 0.8.8
npm v. 4.1.2

Looks like that plugin first looks for mix.autoload before it sets up the aliases that will load jquery. So would it be possible to just add mix.autoload({}) to your mix.js file to prevent this?

mix.js('resources/assets/js/app.js', 'public/js')
   .sass('resources/assets/sass/app.scss', 'public/css')

I haven't tested this, just thought it may work.

Yeah you can do mix.autoload({}), but I think we might still want to remove the jQuery reference entirely.
