[Jarallax]( - Interactive css at your fingertips
Contribution Guides
In the spirit of open source software development, Jarallax always encourages community code contribution.
What you need to build your own Jarallax
In order to build Jarallax, you need to have Node.js/npm latest, GNU make 0.3 or later, and git 1.7 or later.
(Earlier versions might work OK, but are not tested.)
Windows users have two options:
1. Install [msysgit]( (Full installer for official Git),
[GNU make for Windows](, and a
[binary version of Node.js]( Make sure all three packages are installed to the same
location (by default, this is C:\Program Files\Git).
2. Install [Cygwin]( (make sure you install the git, make, and which packages), then either follow
the [Node.js build instructions]( or install
the [binary version of Node.js](
Mac OS users should install Xcode (comes on your Mac OS install DVD, or downloadable from
[Apple's Xcode site]( and
[](Homebrew). Once Homebrew is installed, run `brew install git` to install git,
and `brew install node` to install Node.js.
Linux/BSD users should use their appropriate package managers to install make, git, and node, or build from source
if you swing that way. Easy-peasy.
How to build your own Jarallax
First, clone a copy of the main Jarallax git repo by running:
git clone git://
Make sure you have `grunt` installed by testing:
grunt -version
Then, to get a complete, minified (w/ Uglify.js), linted (w/ JSHint) version of Jarallax, type the following:
The built version of Jarallax will be put in the `bin/` subdirectory.
Git for dummies
As the source code is handled by the version control system Git, it's useful to know some features used.
### Submodules ###
The repository uses submodules, which normally are handled directly by the Makefile, but sometimes you want to
be able to work with them manually.
Following are the steps to manually get the submodules:
git clone
git submodule init
git submodule update
git clone
git submodule update --init
git clone --recursive
