Karma tests running twice on change

My current project's been plagued with duplicate test runs on a single file change. We're using webpack and karma, and it's a documented problem. Someone pointed me to a solution that worked for browserify + karma setup, and it turned out to work for my situation too!

Since our karma-webpack config was processing any .js, .es6 or .jsx file, a change in a spec file was triggering a change there, on top of karma triggering a change on the files it was serving to the browser. A quick patch to the list of files karma handles disabled watching of the spec files, while continuing to serve them:

// in karma.conf.js
files: [
    // ... other files paths
    { pattern: './path/to/tests/**/*.js', watched: false, included: true, served: true }
 ]

And the rest was history.
