Add `title`s to buttons to include JS libraries source code runs on a server with Apache or Lighttpd, MySQL and PHP installed.

How to run a local copy of jsPerf for testing/debugging

  1. Download the source code, as located within this repository.
  2. The code expects things to be hosted at / and not a subdirectory. You might want to create a new virtual host, e.g.
  3. Use _tmp/database.sql to create the jsPerf tables in a database of choice.
  4. Rename _inc/config.sample.php to _inc/config.php and enter your database credentials and other info.
  5. For the Browserscope integration to work, you’ll need a Browserscope API key. To get one, sign in at and then browse to the settings page.
  6. If you are using Apache, edit .htaccess (especially the first few lines) so it matches your current setup. If you are using Lighttpd, set up the virtual host using the sample in _inc/lighttpd.conf.
  7. If you plan on using the update script for Benchmark.js/Platform.js (_tmp/build.php), you’ll need to make some files writable.

    chmod 666 _js/benchmark.js _js/benchmark.src.js _js/platform.src.js\
    _js/ui.browserscope.src.js _js/ui.src.js _inc/version.txt

Note that both include_path and open_basedir must be set to ./:./_tpl/:./_tpl/tpl-inc/:./_inc/.

With PHP 5.4 you can easily start an HTTP web server with these settings for quick testing:

php -d include_path="./:./_tpl/:./_tpl/tpl-inc/:./_inc/" -d open_basedir="./:./_tpl/:./_tpl/tpl-inc/:./_inc/" -d session.save_path="_session" -S localhost:8000
