Ember CLI has an API that lets host apps blacklist addons. I’m wondering if Addons have the ability to do this themselves, in certain environments?
The motivation for this is say I’m writing an addon used for testing purposes. I want my addon to run in dev and test, but I never want it to affect the production build. I could be diligent about all the code I write in
index.js hooks and ensure nothing happens, but the “safest” way seems to be to blacklist it in the
production environment altogether.
The host app can do this but it would be nice if the addon itself could be responsible for excluding itself in prod. Is it possible?
