Webpack & Heroku - Build failure with no error message
Another fix for a webpack build error here! This one took a little while to figure out, and is directly related to the heroku deploy system. The symptoms are an unexpected failure in the heroku build process, often with the last log message being something like:
68% 834/858 buil
webpack.config I had my
deploy script as follows:
"webpack --config --progress webpack.production.config.js"
--progress flag ended up fixing the problem. The underlying issue was that the large amount of log / print statements that
--progress was generating was causing the build process to crash on heroku (but not locally). I hope this saves time for anyone else with this issue!
