I suspect this is the most egregious thing, assuming that folder only is
either needed at development or packaging time or can be generated by
PgAdmin at runtime.
The pgAdmin 4 uses webpack hardSourceWebpackPlugin which caches the optimised
directory during rebundling of webpack module, so that only the changed files
will be processed on the next build in the development environment, and rest of
the files are being picked up from the cached directory which makes the
rebundling fast. But this is only helpful in the development environment, so the
patch to fix this already sent to the pgadmin-hackers (Patch:
Thank you for that.
So I ultimately hope this will result in new DMGs etc being published in the
downloads directory that apply this packaging change for all affected pgAdmin
versions, and not just the next upcoming one, since the older versions are still
