If you want to debug an issue, would like to contribute, or understand how the Bot Builder SDK works, instructions for building and testing the SDK are below.
Clone a copy of the repo:
git clone https://github.com/microsoft/botbuilder-js.git
Change to the SDK's directory:
Build and test locally
Install the prerequisites.
Then use the following command to build the SDK.
Running unit tests
Use the following command to run the unit tests.
prep-test.cmd command is run to install test keys and start the Azure Storage Emulator if its installed. Any unit tests needing test keys or the storage emulator are designed to be skipped if their dependencies are missing so most developers won't need to worry about running this command.
If you have a need to re-generate the LUIS or connector clients using the latest swagger you'll need to install
autorest (requires Node 7.10.0 or higher), which you can do with the following command.
yarn global add global autorest
