Code Refactoring

  • core: remove …Metadata for all decorators and use the decorator directly. (63e15ff)



  • core: – all …Metadata classes have been removed. Use the corresponding decorator as constructor or for instanceofchecks instead.
  • Example:
    • Before: new ComponentMetadata(…)
    • After: new Component(…)
  • Note: new Component(…) worked before as well.
