A note on Node versions used for the build tasks
We try to frequently keep the Node version we use up to date. So, eventually you may need to refresh your package dependencies (i.e., the
node_modules directories). This is because some dependencies are built specifically for the Node version you used when you installed them (either by running
yarn build or
We recommend usage of nvm for managing different Node versions on the same environment.
Note: If you have previously run the Jetpack build tasks (e.g.
yarn build), and didn't come back to it for a long time, you can
run this command before building again. Otherwise you may experience errors on the command line while trying to build.
$ yarn distclean
- Make sure you have
npminstalled and a working WordPress installation.
Clone this repository inside your Plugins directory.
$ git clone https://github.com/Automattic/jetpack.git $ cd jetpack
Install yarn package.
npm install -g email@example.com
Make sure the Jetpack plugin is active and run
$ yarn build
This will install npm dependencies and then build the files.
/wp-admin/admin.php?page=jetpackin your browser.
The development build will create a build without minifying or deduping code. It will also install dependencies for you, so you don't need to
npm install before it.
$ yarn build
Development build with changes monitoring (watch)
You can ran a watch process which will continuously watch the front-end JS and CSS/Sass for changes and rebuild accordingly.
yarn build you'd use
Before running the watch process you may need to
npm install the npm dependencies first if you didn't do it already.
$ yarn $ yarn watch
The production build will generate minified files without duplicated code (resulting from dependencies) and also will generate the matching sourcemap files and language files.
$ yarn build-production
Unit-testing the JS Admin Page
You can run Mocha based tests for the Admin Page source code.
Standing on your jetpack directory, run
$ yarn $ yarn test-client
