Vuex should throw exception on missing mutation type #1638

Reproduction link

Steps to reproduce

  1. Create a new vuex store
  2. From an action, commit a mutation that doesn't exist
  3. Call the action

What is expected?

For an exception to be thrown.

What is actually happening?

An exception is not thrown, instead a console.error is logged, and only if we're not running in production. If we're running in production, literally nothing happens:

    if (process.env.NODE_ENV !== 'production') {
      console.error(("[vuex] unknown mutation type: "   type));

In the sandbox link above, you can see there is no exception is caught because AN ERROR WAS CAUGHT! should appear in the console log, but it doesn't, per:

      try {
      } catch (e) {
        console.error("AN ERROR WAS CAUGHT!", e);

Our error handling code cannot function correctly if no exception is thrown (as it should be, in this case).

This check is meant to be notice the developers that there is a mistake on their code (which is assertion) and only available in development env. Also we strip out it on production env to reduce the file size.
You should not rely on the behavior when you implement your app logic.
