My Battle with Node, Npm, Webpack and its Progress plugin

It was our fault all the time, but we didn’t know how and why and we wanted to know. We wanted to know why the build of our Angular 6 application sometimes worked and sometimes didn’t when we used the same Node+Npm versions every time.

Not sure whether I ever made longer title – but as I had to Google a lot about it and even wrote to Total Commander support email… Continue reading Git Bash Here in Console2 in Total Commander with keyboard shortcut (hotkey)?
