webpack-middware

1.1.3 • Public • Published

WARNING STATEMENT: This module is now considered legacy and should be used with newer webpack 3.x versions with caution due to possible bugs. Reconsider please to use webpack-dev-middleware instead. If you stillt want to use features like custom file system and bundle specific headers please consider to open new PR to the original middleware repo.
