not in assets/.
Otherwise the debugger won't stop at your breakpoints

Project style guides:

  • MOST IMPORTANT: follow the existing code style
  • Make sensible variable names
  • Don't use git pull, use git pull --rebase or git up (git plugin) instead.
    You can run git config branch.master.rebase true to make git pull behave like git pull --rebase on project basis.
  • Use commit names in format [SCOPE] explanation where SCOPE is a feature, subproject or component. Examples:
    • [build] Change gulp task
    • [front-end] added new feature
    • [hotfix] fixed mistake in previous commit
    • [test] added new tests
    • [travis] removed module
    • [heroku] changed env variables
  • Use branches:
    • master branch for stable code synced from develop and bugfixes.
    • develop branch for code in development. Should be regularly merged into master
    • feature-branches for single features development. Should be merged into develop.
    • git tags on master branch to mark releases (like v0.4.3 or v1.0)
