I'm using HMR as set up here: https://github.com/angular/angular-cli/wiki/stories-configure-hmr from a fresh ng new build.

If I change any component and make it lazy loaded, angular HMR will hot-reload everything, making the page sync slower.

I know this because it's by default set-up to console.log every module that is being reloaded, and when I'm using a lazy route, it logs everything. But when I change that component to non-lazy-loaded, it logs only a few small components.

Therefore, when I'm using HMR and lazy routes, my app takes a few more seconds to refresh. This is annoying.

Is there any way around this?

(Lazy loading routes is accomplished by something like this)

// Main homepage
{
  path: '',
  loadChildren: './public/home/home.module#HomeModule'
},
// ...

(just an example to show I am lazy-loading the right way)

Here's some logging to show what happens when I lazy load the home.component.ts

// Everything here is normal, great!
[HMR]  - ../../../../../src/app/public/home/home.component.html
log.js:23 [HMR]  - ../../../../../src/app/public/home/home.component.ts
log.js:23 [HMR]  - ../../../../../src/app/public/home/home.module.ts
log.js:23 [HMR]  - ../../../../../src/app/public/home/home.routing.ts
// Everything below here is NOT normal, bad!  All this is extra.  These are my modules, yes, but all this needs to be loaded again?

A ton more logging
