changelog

2.0.0

  • Hot reloading of background scripts, content scripts, popups, and option pages.
  • Offer choice between ES5 and ES6, make ES6 modules opt-in. This applies to extension scripts, React components, the gulpfile and gulp tasks.
  • Add ES7 decorator support
  • Have version field of manifest.json follow package.json version
  • Pin Babel to 5. We can't move to Babel 6 until babel-plugin-react-transform#46 and livereactload#78 have been resolved.
  • Remove all things CSS: live reloading and bundling CSS (parcelify), preprocessing (LESS/SASS). We're likely to move to CSS modules, please follow #3 for updates. Or, for an example of PostCSS postprocessing, check out the cssnext branch.
  • Upgrade to bare-react 2.0.0 and nom 2.0.0
