Compilation and Installation
If you obtained a source tarball, just use the standard autotools commands:

To run the test suite, invoke:

If the source has been checked out from a Git repository, the ./configure script has to be generated first. The easiest way is to use autoreconf:
$ autoreconf -i
Documentation is available at http://jansson.readthedocs.org/en/latest/.
The documentation source is in the doc/ subdirectory. To generate HTML documentation, invoke:
$ make html
Then, point your browser to doc/_build/html/index.html. Sphinx 1.0 or newer is required to generate the documentation.
