The project page provides three features.
Displaying Details of Current Project
Project details include the icon, AppID, third-party platform name (only displayed when the Mini Program is developed via a third-party platform), directory, time when the code was last submitted, and the code package size.
Changing Base Library Version
Developers can choose any base library version on the project page to develop Mini Programs and to debug the compatibility between new and old versions.
When this option is enabled, WeChat DevTools will attempt to protect the project code, mainly by flattening the file and replacing the file name referenced by
require. This feature is not suitable for the following situations:
- This feature does not work well when a Mini Program only contains simple pages.
- If a file is greater than 500 KB and references files in the project using
require, a prompt message of "File not found" may appear when the code is running.
- Dynamic reference, such as
var a = 'somefile.js'; require(a);
requirefunction is assigned to other variables, such as
var a = require; a('somefile.js');
requireis used as a parameter of a binary operator, such as
require + 1;.
...operator is used without enabling ES6-to-ES5 conversion
Skipping Verification of Request Domain Name and TLS Version
Network request for an official Mini Program requires verification of valid domain name and the TLS version of the domain name, which can be configured in the mp admin console. If this option is enabled during development, WeChat DevTools will not verify the encrypted domain name and the TLS version, helping developers to debug the code more easily in the process of development.
Domain Name Information
This module shows the encrypted domain name information of the Mini Program. The valid domain names can be configured in the mp admin console.
