Subject Re: [FlexJS] Compiler outputs (nearly) empty map file
Date Thu, 28 Sep 2017 21:06:11 GMT
Hi Nicolas,

I just gave it a try on my machine with FlexJS 0.8, and source map file contained the correct
information for the functions in the <fx:Script> tag when I set the source-map option
to true and provided a custom output path. I tried both absolute and relative output paths,
and the contents of the .map file were correct in all cases. The "sources" field of the .map
file even had different paths back to the .mxml file, depending on where it had been output.
I'm on macOS, but I'll make sure to test on Windows too.

I noticed that you mentioned sending the output to a web server. Is this on the same drive
that your workspace is saved, or are you outputting to another drive or somewhere else that
might be unconventional?

Can you share the complete output from the compiler?

Can you also share the contents of myproject03.mxml and asconfig.json?

These might provide some clues that will help me figure out how to reproduce the issue. Thanks!

Note: As others have mentioned, the .js.map file name issue is indeed fixed. If you use a
nightly build, the file name properly ends with .mxml.map instead of .js.map. However, it's
worth noting that it should work without any file name changes if you debug in Visual Studio
Code using the Chrome browser. At least, that was the case the last time that I tried.
