# Testing source map reloading
# autoreloading
# when this file loads the first time it will start reloading itself
# over and over every second
unless window.reload_file

# just can't stand to not clean this up :)
setTimeout (-> document.body.removeChild(x)), 1000
# install coffeescript -- ie. npm install coffeescript
# compile this file with
# $ coffee -mcw
# That will watch and recompile the file and it's source maps as you
# edit and save this file
# load the index.html file into Chrome from the file system
# Open the DevTools console and run window.test_sm()
# and follow the source links for the log and error statements
# and see that they work
# Now modify the file by adding random blank lines in between the
# different functions defined below. Save the file after modifying it.
# !!! The new modifyme.js will get loaded into the browser automatically. !!!
# Do not refresh the browser by hand.
# Then execute the window.test_sm() function in the DevTools console
# and check the source path links.
