Contributing to Dust

  • Setup a branch for what you are working on

    git checkout -b myBranchName
  • Test your changes (jshint, unit tests in node, rhino and phantom and make sure test coverage thresholds are met)

    grunt test
  • Use grunt dev while developing\debugging. This task will start a server and serve Jasmine spec runner on http://localhost:3000/_SpecRunner.html. This task uses unminified dust-full.js so it allows you to easily step through the code in a browser.

  • Use grunt testClient to test production version of code (dust-full.min.js) in a browser. Similarly to grunt dev it serves Jasmine spec runner on http://localhost:3000/_SpecRunner.html.

  • Add unit tests. Unit tests can be found in the test/jasmine-tests/spec directory. Help us keep up good test coverage! To view coverage report run grunt coverage and open tmp/coverage/index.html in a browser.

  • Add an issue and send a pull request. Pull requests are easier to track if you also include an issue. Sending a pull request from a branch makes it easier for you to resolve conflicts in master
