fix(gatsby): Ensure publicPath is always relative for gatsby develop #11227

merged 1 commit into from Jan 23, 2019

@sidharthachatterjee sidharthachatterjee commented Jan 23, 2019

In gatsby develop we were setting publicPath for webpack-dev-server to an absolute url constructed from the program host, port and protocol

This is unnecessary and causes HMR and static links to break when viewed on a separate device over a network like in this screenshot below

This pull request fixes this by making the publicPath always relative

Fixes #11219 and #5801

`${program.ssl ? `https` : `http`}://${
publicPath: process.env.GATSBY_WEBPACK_PUBLICPATH || `/`,

Wouldn't we still want to handle the ssl stuff? Seems like this would be a breaking change for that behavior.

If nothing else--would you be able to validate this hasn't broken that behavior?

Just tested, works fine!

Keep in mind that the automatic certificates issued with the --https flag are explicitly issued to localhost and will only be accepted there. Using it together with the --host option will likely result in browser warnings.

This behaviour documented in remains the same

This did seem weird--so yeah, let's try this out. Thanks!
