While I can understand Telerik's position, it places developers in a difficult situation when trying to track down elusive bugs in shipped / shippable software.
Do you have any recommendations?
Please note that source maps are already included in latest official release of KendoUI and you can use them to debug the minified scripts.
I still have a question about including source maps in distributable software, is this permitted? If not, do you have any recommendations for supporting deployed software that uses Kendo UI.
You can use the source maps in distributable software as they are not exactly source code.
How could I use source mappings in a browser, e.g. Chrome? I've copied all kendo js files + mappings into scripts folder in my project, js files and mappings are now reachable from the browser. What about source files, where should I put them? Should I copy them also to the project to the same folder? Or I could leave them in an installation/system folder and somehow redirect mappings? How could I now see the line with a breakpoint in Chrome in the source code? I've already looked in the Kendo documentation but I can't find anything related. Thanks for an answer.
