Setting client-debug for using uncompressed JS files

This is just in case anyone else needed this information - took me a while to find it (and there are a few forum posts related to this without a clear pointer).

For webscripts and dashlets, the components/component.head.inc file determines whether to use the compressed or uncompressed JS file included with the component:

<#assign minJS=(config.global.flags.childrenMap["client-debug"][0].value = "true")?string(".js", "-min.js")>

Configuration settings are stored in the webscripts-framework-config-custom.xml file (if you're making the changes in your web-extension vs. in the main webscripts-framework-config.xml). The 3.0_Web_Scripts wiki page describes how configurations are defined.

To set the client-debug flag, add this code to webscripts-framework-config-custom.xml:

<config>
  <flags>
    <client-debug>true</client-debug>
  </flags>
</config>

This requires an Alfresco restart.
