Do you want to request a feature or report a bug?
What is the current behavior?
Module ids are numbers, making it unusable in HMR, and less useful than it could be when stepping though the code in the browser.
If this is a feature request, what is motivation or use case for changing the behavior?
I know there’s a warning printed when using HMR and not the named plugin (6b4ced4), but it’s useful also for bundles in the browser. The only time you might not want it is in production builds, because numbers take up fewer bytes, but then I think
NamedModulesPlugin should just check for
minimize-mode, and noop in that case.
Please mention other relevant information such as the browser version, Node.js version, Operating System and programming language.
