Your first Polymer element
This repo goes with the Build your first Polymer element codelab.
The codelab is designed to be used with Chrome Dev Editor. See the next section if you'd like to use another editor for the codelab.
Running the codelab without Chrome Dev Editor
If you're not using CDE, you'll need to install some command-line tools to manage dependencies and to run the demo.
Download and install Node from https://nodejs.org/. Node includes the node package manager command,
npm install -g bower polymer-cli
Clone this repo:
Change directory to your local repo and install dependencies with
cd polymer-first-elements bower install
To preview your element, run
polymer servefrom the repo directory:
localhost:8080/components/icon-toggle/demo/in your browser. (Note that the path uses
icon-toggle—the component name listed in this element's
bower.jsonfile—rather than the actual directory name.)
If you're wondering what
polymer serve does, see Testing elements with local bower dependencies
in the Polymer docs.
