Subject Re: Debugging Angular JS Application
Date Thu, 10 Sep 2015 15:58:28 GMT
With the exploded structure, maybe we can move the webapp source underneath server/solr-webapp
(and let the build just fill in the binary Java stuff, and avoid overwriting anything).  Then
we can keep the source in the same place as the “dist”, keeping it nice and DRY and easily
debuggable/refreshable-without-a-build?   Would that work?
