@wordpress/readable-js-assets-webpack-plugin Edit

Generate a readable non-minified JS file for each .min.js asset.

The end result is that for each JS entrypoint, we get a set of readable and non-minimized .js file and a minimized .min.js. This allows Gutenberg to follow the WordPress convention of adding a .min.js suffix to minimized JS files, while still providing a readable and unminized files that play well with the WordPress i18n machinery.

Consult the webpack website for additional information on webpack concepts.

module.exports = {
    // …snip
