Looking for someone with
webpack expertise to give me a hand the on animal kingdom sample application used in our Zero-to-DApp tutorial. @larry did a wonderful job coming up with the animal kingdom sample code. His code leveraged some npm scripts and
webpack versions that are causing problems.
npm buildscript does not run successfully on Windows sending minify errors (blocking me on completing that version of the tutorial)
The webpack needs upgrading (https://github.com/blockstack/animal-kingdom/issues/51)
I spent some time over the holiday attempting to work the
webpack minify problem. Unfortunately, the fix recommended by React wouldn’t work with the code as in place.
@zone117x took a deeper look and we discussed it. We think the best thing to do is a subtractive approach. Remove the packaging there and redo what is there. Specifically Matt noted:
npmscripts would make this simpler to manage
- the babel packages should be upgraded
- the webpack should be upgraded
Not clear how fast a wepack expert could knock this out — maybe a couple of hours work. I now for a react/wepack newb like me, it would be maybe days. So, I’m asking for help from the community with this. (I’ve got a big Gaia doc push on and don’t want to put that push on a burner)
Anyway, reply here and check out the issues above if you are willing to help. Definitely willing to supply some Blockstack merch such as a t-shirt – and credit in the tutorial for anyone willing to take this on.
Having to hold on the final Windows tutorial…breaking my heart.
