            Vuejs Webpack Compression Plugin not compressing
            Asked 2022-Mar-28 at 12:53

            I need help debugging Webpack's Compression Plugin.

            SUMMARY OF PROBLEM

            • Goal is to enable asset compression and reduce my app's bundle size. Using the Brotli algorithm as the default, and gzip as a fallback for unsupported browsers.
            • I expected a content-encoding field within an asset's Response Headers. Instead, they're loaded without the field. I used the Chrome dev tools' network tab to confirm this. For context, see the following snippet:
            • No errors show in my browser or IDE when running locally.

            WHAT I TRIED

            • Using different implementations for the compression plugin. See below list of approaches:

            Answered 2021-Sep-30 at 14:59

            It's not clear which server is serving up these assets. If it's Express, looking at the screenshot with the header X-Powered-By, https://github.com/expressjs/compression/issues/71 shows that Brotli support hasn't been added to Express yet.

            There might be a way to just specify the header for content-encoding manually though.

            I'm using Mac M1 and I've just upgraded to Node 14.17.6LTS.

            An interesting choice, given that Node 16 officially introduced M1 support.

            no member named 'GetContents' in 'v8::ArrayBuffer'

            See this doc. In short, GetContents was replaced by GetBackingStore in late 2019. Being a compatibility layer, nan adapted to this in early 2020.

            So you'll probably have to ensure that the versions of all involved packages (Node, nan, electron, ...) match each other (in the sense of having been released around the same time and targeting each other).

            electron-builder can exclude files in the files section of your package.json.

            Default pattern / is not added to your custom if some of your patterns is not ignore (i.e. not starts with !). package.json and /node_modules// (only production dependencies will be copied) is added to your custom in any case. All default ignores are added in any case — you don’t need to repeat it if you configure own patterns.

            I recently started developing an Electron application, and I am using daisyUI's Tailwind CSS components for the appearance of the user interface. I want to make the main window of the application rounded; however, daisyUI is making this task pretty challenging.

            As you can see in the screenshot below, by default, daisyUI adds a background color to the body. I added the .bg-transparent class to the body tag, in order to make the background transparent, but daisyUI does not let the change apply (note the corners):

            On the contrary, if I don't add daisyUI's CSS file to the head tag, the body becomes transparent:
