// } 

Installation

npm install source-map-dummy

var createDummySourceMap = require("source-map-dummy")

Usage

Creates a “dummy” source map for tokens, which is an array of strings. One mapping will be added per token, except blank ones. Each mapping maps back to itself.

First tokenize your source code into an array. Then pass that array to createDummySourceMap. This way it works with any type of source code.

In reality, source maps are only used for JavaScript and CSS. Therefore you may also pass a string of either JavaScript or CSS, that will be tokenized for you.

options:

  • source: Required. The path to the file containing code. All mappings will point to this source.
  • type: Required if tokens is a string. Set it to js if tokens is a string of JavaScript, and to css if it is CSS.
