How to build your own jQuery Mobile CSS and JS files

Clone this repo and build the js and css files (you'll need Git and Make installed):

git clone git://github.com/jquery/jquery-mobile.git
cd jquery-mobile
make

A full version and a minified version of the jQuery Mobile JavaScript and CSS files will be created in a folder named "compiled". There is also now a Structure only css file so you can add your own theme on top of it.

Running the jQuery Mobile demos & docs locally

To preview locally, you'll need to clone a local copy of this repository and point your Apache & PHP webserver at its root directory (a webserver is required, as PHP and .htaccess are used for combining development files).

If you don't currently have a webserver running locally, there are a few options.

If you're on a Mac, you can try dropping jQuery Mobile into your sites folder and turning on Web Sharing via System Prefs. From there, you'll find a URL where you can browse folders in your sites directory from a browser.

Another quick way to get up and running is to download and install MAMP for Mac OSX. Once installed, just open MAMP, click preferences, go to the Apache tab, and select your local jQuery Mobile folder as the root. Then you can open a browser to http://localhost:8888 to preview the code.

Another alternative is XAMPP (Mac, Windows). You need to actually modify Apache's httpd.conf to point to your checkout: Instructions

You need the following Apache modules loaded:

  • Rewrite (mod_rewrite.so)
  • Expire (mod_expires.so)
  • Header (mod_headers.so)

Building With A Custom Theme

To use a custom theme in your own build, you'll need Make installed. You can find the themes in the CSS/Themes folder. To create a new theme:

  1. Copy the Default folder from CSS/Themes to a new folder in the same location. The name of the folder will be the theme's name. For testing locally, make sure the index.php file is copied as well.
  2. Edit the jquery.mobile.theme.css file so it contains your custom fonts and colors.
  3. Once you are done editing your files and saving them, open a terminal.
  4. Navigate to the jQuery-Mobile folder's root.
  5. Run the following command to build jQuery-Mobile. The CSSTHEME specifies what theme to include. If you leave it off, it will build using the "default" theme.

    make CSSTHEME=YourThemeName

  6. The compiled files will be located in the "compiled" folder in the root of jQuery-Mobile.
