The official site offers a download of the default distribution of Zepto. This is good for starting out. However, at some point you might want to add some optional modules and remove some of the default ones you don't need, to keep the size at a minimum. That's when you need to check out Zepto's source code and use the build commands. Alternatively you can use the web based Zepto Builder.
You will need Node.js installed on your system.
$ npm install $ npm run-script dist # do a custom build $ MODULES="zepto event data" npm run-script dist # on Windows c:\zepto> SET MODULES=zepto event data c:\zepto> npm run-script dist
The resulting files are:
If you install CoffeeScript globally, you can run
# one-time operation $ npm install coffee-script --global $ coffee make dist $ MODULES="zepto event data ..." ./make dist # on Windows c:\zepto> SET MODULES=zepto event data c:\zepto> coffee make dist
Zepto modules are individual files in the "src/" directory.

Help! It doesn't work in browserify!
Here is an example of shimming Zepto for browserify, allowing you to easily import only needed modules while leaving the source code untouched.
You will need to install PhantomJS. On OS X, that's easy:
$ brew install phantomjs
To run the automated tests:
$ npm test
To run a test server, which you can hit with your browsers and devices:
$ npm start
http://your-ip-address:3000/ on your browser and follow the
instructions. For your convenience test failures and exceptions will be
reported to the the console you started the test server in (as well as
the browser console if available).
