fuck why is the jitsi codebase so fucking overcomplicated

Follow

also jitsi why the fuck does your horribly convoluted MAKEFILE + webpack stack not livereload the css, come ON

oh and the amount of code duplication is just, sad

programmers that get paid for this shit: please git good

but! I fully updated my fork with upstream, made my changes neater, and added custom settings (a horrible rabbithole down all the corners of jitsi's redux state management)

@f0x *crotchety voice* live reload?? Back in my day we had to reupload manually over FTP each time we wanted to see the changes.

im very very very sorry in advance 

@s0 ok boomer :#)

biggest issue with this is that their bundle size is huge and takes ages, and literally the only way to get their sass/css to recompile is kill the dev server and start it up again,,,

im very very very sorry in advance 

@f0x :blobcat_uwucry:
Also ok having to kill the server every time is ridiculous.

@f0x And there’s no dev server mode that does live reload? That’s basically built in to webpack at this point,,,,

@vy the webpack does for js, just not stylesheets... :/

@vy their wack, makefile powered config that is, webpack can do that just fine normally...
