Clone the project and install dependencies before getting started. GitHub Buttons require Node.js, Ruby, and Bundler for local development.

npm i
bundle i

The GitHub buttons source code is split across three files in src/—the HTML, CSS, and JS. We use inline-source-cli and html-minifer to include it all in the compiled docs/github-btn.html file. To build this file:

npm run build

The site is built with Jekyll. After installing the dependencies, you can run a local server:

bundle exec jekyll serve

Open to browse locally.
