No production `devtool` in webpack

No production devtool in webpack (no-devtool-in-prod)

Why is this important?

The devtool property significantly increases the size of your JavaScript bundles.

What does the hint check?

This checks if you are using the proper devtool property for production webpack builds.

Example that trigger the hint

module.exports = {
    devtool: 'eval',
    entry: ['entry'],
    output: {
        filename: 'bundle.js',
        path: path.join(__dirname, 'dist')
    }
};

Examples that pass the hint

module.exports = {
    entry: ['entry'],
    output: {
        filename: 'bundle.js',
        path: path.join(__dirname, 'dist')
    }
};
