  1. Have node.js v0.10 or higher
  2. From the source folder run npm install
  3. Then ./node_modules/.bin/bower install to download dependencies
  4. Then ./node_modules/.bin/grunt build to build
  5. Look in the pkg folder for results!


Testing is something that is still inherited from ages ago and is currently using QUnit. To test the project, it's a two step process:

  1. Start HTTP server ./node_modules/.bin/grunt test
  2. Open browser on http://localhost:3000 and go from there
