Cannot Find kendo.all.min.js in the Kendo UI NPM Packages
|Product||Progress® Kendo UI® for jQuery|
|Operating System||Windows 10 64bit|
I want to use Kendo UI Professional with an NPM package—and not manually as I currently do. I did the NPM installation by using the
npm login --registry=https://registry.npm.telerik.com/ --scope=@progress and
npm install --save @progress/kendo-ui commands. All folders and files that need to be in the
@progress folder are present, including the
node_modules folder. However, while the
kendo.all.js file is available, the
kendo.all.min.js file is missing.
- Why is the
kendo.all.min.jsfile missing from the folder?
- How can I integrate the
kendo.all.jsfile with Webpack 2 as I cannot have the minified version?
It is expected that the
kendo.all.min.js file is missing from the NPM package because
kendo.all.min.js is specifically designed to work with module loaders such as Webpack. A minified version is not available because of the special approach when users work with module loaders. For example,
kendo.all.js (module loaders) from the distribution is only 3KB as compared to over 1 MB for the regular version.
For more details, refer to the article on third-parties frameworks and utilities.
For more information on Webpack integration, refer to this GitHub demo. Even though the example uses Webpack version 1, you can use a similar approach in Webpack version 2.
