Build Status Gittip

Component is a vertically integrated frontend solution, handling everything from package management to the build process, handling everything including HTML, JS, CSS, images, and fonts. Think of it as an opinionated npm + browserify + rework-npm + grunt/gulp/brocolli all wrapped into component build.

Want to know more about Component? Visit the guide or view the comparison with other solutions.

Please note: As of 1 April 2014, component v1.0.0 release candidates have been pushed to master. Several major new features have been added, some have been removed, and the project has been greatly reorganized. You may need to upgrade your version of node and/or npm to avoid breakage. Please see the detailed changelog in the Guide wiki pages for more info.


First, you need node v0.10+ installed. If you do not have it installed, visit node's download page.

With node installed, run the following command:

 $ npm install -g component
