Info for developers
I Want to make an improvement/fix, but I don't understand how it works. What I have to do?
Firstly, you need to open the
cli/cli.js file. It's the main entrypoint for all commands.
Each CLI command executes the corresponding command file.
There are two types of command:
lint. The commands are just the JS functions.
buildcommands (dev, dev-server, build, test) need the webpack to work, so they received the build config as a first parameter
lintcommands doesn't need the build config, so they received a
library root pathand a
working directory pathas a parameters
The command functions return nothing. You can do anything inside them. They are just containers for commands code
Command files are stored in
The lint commands are stored deeply in
