FrankerFaceZ uses node.js to manage development dependencies and to run an HTTP server for development. To get everything you need:
- Install node.js and npm
npm installwithin the FrankerFaceZ directory.
From there, you can use npm to build FrankerFaceZ from source simply by
npm run build. For development, you can instruct webpack to watch
the source files for changes and re-build automatically with
FrankerFaceZ comes with a local development server that listens on port 8000 and it serves up local development copies of files, falling back to the CDN when a local copy of a file isn't present.
Note: The local development server uses
webpack-dev-serverinternally, which self-signs a certificate for hosting content via HTTPS. You will need to ensure your browser accepts a self-signed certificate for localhost.
To make FrankerFaceZ load from your local development server, you must set
the local storage variable
ffzDebugMode to true. Just run the following
in your console on Twitch:
localStorage.ffzDebugMode = true;
It should be noted that this project is not a browser extension that you would load in your browser's extensions system. You still need the FrankerFaceZ extension or user-script for your browser.
You can edit the project's icon font using the
npm run font command. This will
create a new Fontello session, if one doesn't already exist, and open your
default web browser to Fontello so you can edit the font.
If you're running the development server with
npm start, you'll be able to
automatically save changes to the Fontello font by clicking Fontello's Export
button. Otherwise, you can use
npm run font:save to download the changes
from your session.
Please make sure that your editor is configured to use tabs rather than spaces
for indentation and that lines are ended with
\n. It's recommended that you
configure linting support for your editor as well.
If you're using Visual Studio Code, make sure to install the ESLint extension and add the following to your workspace settings:
