Stuck on an issue?

Lightrun Answers was designed to reduce the constant googling that comes with debugging 3rd party libraries. It collects links to all the places you might be looking at while hunting down a tough bug.

And, if you’re still stuck at the end, we’re happy to hop on a call to see how we can help out.

Guiding Ideas:

broccoli’s cli should have:

  • a simple implementation (complex features should be avoided)
  • a simple developer experience (not all the features, but the ones that matter)


  • broccoli help and broccoli help serve should display various serve options --port --host (and in the future more
  • build and serve should have more options, for example:
    • --brocfile-path= for running specific brocfiles (@chrmod)
    • --cwd= for specifying the cwd of a given brocfile
    • --output-path=
    • --watcher= allowing configuration of which watch type should be used. Some users may need polling due to FS limitations etc. options = polling, watchman, events
    • --watch= allow toggling the watcher (for both build and watch) #

json output is one more cool feature from ember-cli.

@stefanpenner what --watch option should do for build command?

build --watch should be the same as serve but without HTTP server.

In theory we may just want to have a build that optionally:

  • can serve
  • can build
  • can rebuild
