I’m submitting a bug report
webpack and webpack-dev-server version:
webpack-dev-server: 1.14.1 and 2.1.0-beta.3
Please tell us about your environment:
Linux Fedora 24
Reloading to work.
I’ve upgraded to webpack 2 in an angular project. After the upgrade, the exact same configuration works, except for the reloading. webpack-dev-server will always throw the following Uncaught errors when files have changed. There are no errors in the console though:
Unexpected token <`
ReferenceError: webpackHotUpdate is not defined
This wouldn’t happen with Webpack 1. It now happens with webpack-dev-server both 1 and 2, and independently from whether or not HMR is enabled
Steps to reproduce
I have created a repo with my config and a basic angular skeleton.
- npm install
- npm start
- Go to http://localhost:3000/
- Just change the html file
debug-webpack-dev-server/src/app/app.component.htmlwith anything you want to trigger the reload.
- On my end, that is enough to get the error.
What is the expected behavior?
Webpack-dev-server to reload with and without HMR
What is the motivation / use case for changing the behavior?
Please note that even though this is an issue with webpack-dev-server, an issue was already submitted in their repo: webpack/webpack-dev-server#601 (comment)
I’m submitting this issue here as instructed by one maintainer of the repo.
Also, the issue doesn’t seem to lie with dev-server itself, as error only happens with webpack 2 and any version of dev-server.
