Notes for Developers

  • To automatically transpile your JS while developing, just start watch task: npm run-script watch.
  • The only thing this starter addon currently does is open dev tools in Local and add a reload() function to the window object, type reload() into the dev tools console after you've saved/transpiled to see your changes.
  • I've noticed that using the symbolic link described in step 4. of the Quick Start can cause ridiculously long loading times. It's probably easier to develop directory inside the addon folder.

Installing Dev Dependencies

npm install

Folder Structure

All files in /src will be transpiled to /lib using Babel. Anything in /lib will be overwritten.


npm run-script build or npm run-script watch to transpile when source files are saved

Babel, transpiling, ES6, Node.js, what?
