Build and debug

Dependencies

AnyChart uses several third-party libraries and tools to work with JavaScript and CSS.

Building options

build.py python script is used to work with AnyChart project. You need to install python to use it.

To see all available options of the build script use -h or --help command:

./build.py -h.

To see command options use:

./build.py <command_name> -h

To install all dependencies use the deps command:

./build.py deps.

After running this command you can compile the project using the compile command:

./build.py compile

This compiles production version of anychart-bundle and all modules and puts them into the out folder. You can read more about modules in our Modules article.

To create a dev build for the debug purposes use -d or --develop option:

./build.py compile -d

The -df option generates property renaming report, variable renaming report, and source map location mapping files:

./build.py compile -df

Source map maps minified code to source code. Read more about using source maps in Chrome or source maps in Firefox.

Module system

AnyChart since v8.0.0 is structured as a modules, so you can use only what you need. Please look at our article Modules to start working with modules.
