Description From Last Updated

We should add a djblets.deprecation section that talks about the functions now available to consumers (commit 066be07e).

We should explicitly document the following under a djblets.pipeline section: use_rollup argument on djblets.pipeline.settings.build_pipeline_settings djblets.pipeline.compilers.rollup `djblets.pipeline.compilers.typescript djblets.pipeline.compilers.mixins.SourceMapStaleCheckMixin We have the …

I thought it still supported 3.7 too? I might just be mistaken though.

Let's link to this. We can add an extlink in conf.py for :npm:.

    I thought it still supported 3.7 too? I might just be mistaken though.

    1. You're right, the decision we had made was for the betas to keep it, and reevaluate for final depending on when we ship.

    1. Isn't all of that part of 3.2?

    Let's link to TypeScript and rollup.js, and separate out the first sentence from the rest of the paragraph so it stands out (this would normally be the main line of the bullet point, I think).

    The work also benefits extensions, which can use TypeScript and ES5 modules. We may want to put up something in a djblets.extensions section specifically about that.

    1. I think I'll just add that in here as an extra paragraph. We can go into much more detail in the RB documentation for extensions.

  2. We should explicitly document the following under a djblets.pipeline section:

    • use_rollup argument on djblets.pipeline.settings.build_pipeline_settings
    • djblets.pipeline.compilers.rollup
    • `djblets.pipeline.compilers.typescript
    • djblets.pipeline.compilers.mixins.SourceMapStaleCheckMixin

    We have the general stuff about packaging, but these are API, not internal, so we need entries for them.
