My site is epic-bose-28a69b
I’ve had relentless issues with large media, in part from misunderstanding the setup process the first time, but after starting over with a clean repo and new app, I was eventually able to get all my files pushed and visible from the deployed app!
… Until yesterday. Now they’ve reverted to the busted “netpack base64 encoded a git lfs pointer file” behavior – where they get checked out as git lfs pointers, netpack realizes they’re tiny and inlines them as data, but a git lfs file isn’t a valid jpg so it gives an error during rendering
And to doublecheck that I wasn’t crazy, I checked my Large Media settings and grabbed a URL – https://epic-bose-28a69b.netlify.app/img/selfsacrifice.e60bb32e.jpeg – and got a 404. Yep, my large media was gone. Then, because I wanted to triple-check that I had the URL scheme right and that 404 wasn’t because I missed something, I pushed a change to turn off webpack’s url-loader for images
I refreshed my site, and everything was there! I hit “View Image” on one, and my URL scheme from before was correct. I went back to the tab that I’d used to open selfsacrifice there, and now the picture loaded just fine!?
What happened, and how can I keep it from happening again?
