When I build my angular-cli application, the updated /dist files are in the VCS window's Ignored Files set when viewed in the Local Changes portion of the Version Control window:
My build is performed this way:
ng build --prod --aot
All of the files generated by that new build that appear in the Ignored Files list have the form
inline.<huge guid value>.bundle.js
main.<huge guid value>.bundle.js
main.<huge guid value>.bundle.js.gz
The huge problem this presents is that the updated index.html references those ignored files.
I have commented out this line in .gitignore ahead of time:
Shouldn't that allow any newly generated (by ng build) /dist files to participate in the commit/push sequence I need to perform to deploy those changes to GitHub?
What step(s) am I missing or doing incorrectly that is causing this issue?
How can I automatically have any newly generated (by ng build) /dist files be included in any subsequent push/commit sequence?
Eventually, I'd like to automate this process, but I can't if I cannot trust that the latest /dist files will be pushed/committed.
